Industrial Internet of Things is the digitization of important variables, with that data converted into information that creates faster and better decision making. Business leaders often believe the software development part is the most challenging, but that’s far from true. In fact, programming is the easy part of IIoT.
The business decisions, the data to be collected and retained, and the actual integration of the information into decision making and directly into operations is the biggest challenge you will face. Think about those first, then add a few sensors, collect some data, convert it into information, and see how your integration plans work.
Like every other major change in thinking, doing, or deciding, change management needs cannot be overlooked.
