Improving operational performance

The Industrial Internet of Things, or Smart Manufacturing, refers to the growth of the use of connected devices in Factories, Plants, Supply Chain and Fleets to improve operational performance for companies within their own organisations and throughout their partner, customer and supplier ecosystems.

A broad category, that will run across a large number of different industry sectors, the Industrial IoT market is estimated to reach $319.62 Billion by 2020.[1]

In order to drive significant improvements in the business processes, companies need to take advantage of data from devices and vehicles throughout their supplier and partner networks while protecting commercially sensitive production methods and research.

Data security and privacy is therefore crucial to the successful deployment of Industrial IoT solutions – companies need to ensure the secure identification of the relevant devices, collection of data and transfer and enrichment throughout the IoT ecosystem, key benefits that are provided by the Device Authority platform.
