Value and uses of IIoT data for small and medium manufacturers

Data is the new economy – the art of using data to increase productivity for small to medium manufacturers


Man working on factory line

Lifecycle Insights recently performed a survey of small and medium manufacturers to learn more about the challenges they face when it comes to the importance of data and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This survey spanned multiple countries and reached over 250 key decision makers. Join us for a live webinar to discuss the findings.

Hurdles to IIoT adoption

The majority of respondents to the 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?

Join us for this webinar to hear directly from Lifecycle Insights and participate in a live Q&A.
