The manufacturing industry is a prime beneficiary of the continued evolution of the internet of things. The Industrial Internet of Things, or IIoT, integrates Big Data, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, machine learning, smart equipment or robots, and an array of sensors into optimizing processes within a system. These technologies enable companies to collect data, analyze the data, and make critical decisions based on that data. The data can also be used to automate processes, which reduces the need for human interaction, improves process accuracy, and reduces overall operational costs. Streamlining processes is important in many industries, but is essential in the industrial segment. IIoT can typically be found and utilized in industries such as healthcare, energy, aerospace, manufacturing and more.
