Traditional supply chains face challenges at every step. Deliveries are vulnerable to delays, theft and spoilage, and issues are not always apparent until goods arrive at their destination (or fail to). With entire shipments routinely at stake, the logistics industry has long needed a smart, modern solution.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will impact virtually all industries but none more so than manufacturing. In fact, IoT—with its potential to transform traditionally linear systems into dynamic and interconnected ones—may be the biggest driver of change in factories and other facilities.
Internet of Things (IoT) technology holds incredible promise for transforming the enterprise, but one of the biggest hurdles for companies implementing IoT will be extracting insight from the incredible volumes of fast-moving data these systems produce and integrating that resulting intelligence into business processes in real time.
