Success Not Guaranteed

Writing at the IoT Journal, Scot Wlodarczak points to a study that says that IIoT projects are considered a complete success in only 26 percent of cases. This means, simply, that people quarterbacking these efforts need all the help they can get.

Wlodarczak counsels companies to start small; define success; align IT and operations; understand and address security risks; avoid data overload and "cultivate a technology-focused culture and IoT expertise." He also suggests developing a deep understanding of the networks in use and simplifying where possible.

The consumer Internet of Things (IoT) is a great thing. It helps us stay fit; increases the IQ of our homes, buildings and cities; and empowers everything from alarm clocks to cars. It is destined to grow and, if security and standards issues are solved, thrive.

The use of the same basic technology in commercial, industrial and other complex and dense environments, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), eventually could be even more impactful. Grandview Research predicted this spring that the global value of the IIoT will reach $993.62 billion by 2025. The value of the sector exceeded $100 billion last year and has a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 25 percent, according to the report.

Grandview says that businesses want to merge operational and information departments of their organizations. Doing so, the report suggests, will “increase the overall productivity, enhance operational efficiency, improve visibility, and reduce the complexities of different processes in the industry."

Cost reduction to date has been the main driver of adoption. Other contributors are the emergence of ancillary and complementary technologies, including low-power hardware devices, the cloud, Big Data analytics, robotics and automation and smart sensors. Let’s look into the interesting world of the IIoT.
