The Impact of Connectedness on Competitiveness

Creating Business Value From Operational Insight Driven by the Industrial IoT

The Industrial Internet of Things will transform business and industrial performance, delivering significant improvements in operational efficiency and uptime, as well as growth from new business models, products, services and customer experiences.

Still, despite keen interest and growing expectations, most companies are unprepared to take advantage of IIoT technology and have no clear strategic roadmap or implementation plan. The newly released report, "The Impact of Connectedness on Competitiveness," reveals that industries are combatting a plethora of challenges on the road to IoT, ranging from a lack of technical and analytical skills, to the need to rethink business models, to increased complexity around platform and industry standards and partner collaboration.

Executives see significant value in a wide variety of IIoT applications, that could transform customer-facing and operational activities. Executives across the C-Suite will need to come together to collaboration around new service-oriented business models, and key collaborative partners and technology integrators will be vital to success.
