The industrial internet of things (IIoT) provides insight into manufacturing processes through hardware and software that works together. The degree to which IIoT is implemented is scalable and flexible, enabling progressive adoption by small and medium businesses. In this webinar, Mike Denley shares what Lifecycle Insights found in its recent survey of manufacturers. His expertise sheds light on how IIoT can impact your business and provide a flexible manufacturing environment.

Hurdles to IIoT adoption

The majority of respondents to a recent survey said that their business faced the following issues that slowed their adoption of IIoT:

  • Uncertainty. My company is unsure of what changes to pursue and does not have the time to investigate.
  • Technology costs. The cost of technology solutions is too high (software, hardware, training, consulting, etc.)
  • People-related costs: The cost of implementing changes for people is too high (hiring new employees, organizational changes, training, etc.)
  • Potential work disruption: The potential disruption to ongoing projects is too risky
  • So how do we get past these issues and move towards a future where IIoT plays a significant role in how manufacturers accelerate transformation?

In this on-demand webinar, you’ll hear directly from Lifecycle Insights about their findings.
