Study Sees Double-Digit 1-Yr. Gains In IIoT Sophistication

IFS’ research study of 200 North American executives reveals substantial year-over-year gains in internet of things (IoT) usage in industrial companies. Executives at respondent companies, ranging from manufacturers to trade contractors and oil and gas companies, are collecting more data from connected devices, integrating it with other systems in new ways, and making IoT more central to their businesses.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.
  • Companies collecting IoT data on entire work cells or production lines rather than individual machine components or individual machines has increased by 17 percent. This enables more advanced use cases, which helps explain a 30 percent increase in use of IoT to support asset performance management.
  • Respondents using IoT to monitor their customer equipment saw a 10 percent increase, potentially signaling transformational approaches to field service management.
  • Despite these advances, the percentage of respondents who have integrated IoT data streams with their enterprise resource planning (ERP) software hovers at 16 percent. This reluctance may represent a barrier to leveraging IoT to deliver net new business models or revenue opportunities.
