The impact of the Internet of Things on product development

March 1, 2016

"Every day, around the world, engineering organizations are exploring the new technological possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT). Today’s products have moved beyond mechanical and electrical components to now include complex combinations of hardware, sensors, data storage, microprocessors, software and ubiquitous connectivity. Companies that can adapt to the fast pace of change in this IoT world—incorporating and analyzing
data from a wide variety of sources—have an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate innovation, meet increasing consumer expectations and gain advantages in a new era of competition."

Using IoT Device Gateways to Unlock Business Value from Legacy Machines

whitePaper | December 28, 2017

According to Gartner, by 2020, more than 20.4 billion devices will be connected to a network in what is commonly called the Internet of Things (IoT). McKinsey Global Institute estimates that the global economic impact of the IoT will generate up to $11.1T annually by 2025. Connectivity is the first step in capitalizing on the powerful insights generated by connected devices in the IoT, which can be used to optimize operations, provide better user experiences, or create new services. The economic impact of the IoT is not only driven by the next generation of connected devices, but also from connecting millions, if not billions of legacy brownfield industrial equipment deployed over the past few decades in factories, refineries, and various other industrial settings. Obvious industrial IoT use cases focus on improving overall production yield while reducing costs and waste. But many OEMs are just starting to realize that almost any factor that could affect their bottom line, such as downtime or equipment degradation, can be mitigated by analyzing data generated from connected sensors and machines. These device networks provide insights that can alert organizations to problems with yield, inform workers to fix equipment that is about to fail or develop statistical models that can predict maintenance for machine longevity.
