11:00 AM (ET)


Industrial customers need actionable insights to improve safety, streamline operations, increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve profitability in running their industrial operations. They can get these insights, and deliver key outcomes, by deploying industrial IoT solutions that pull data from their assets, operations applications, and business systems, migrate the data to a structured data store at the edge and in the cloud, and interpret the data using analytics. However, these deployments can be expensive and time-consuming, requiring specialized OT-IT system integration expertise, customer domain knowledge, and technology skills such as edge computing, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and data management.

Strategic Collaborations can provide End-to-end experience, and co-innovation to speed up the time to market & develop new Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Key Topics Covered

  • Smart Manufacturing Maturity Assessment Report – survey of the IIoT World audience
  • The importance of co-innovating to develop new Industrial Internet of Things applications
