Digital technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) are driving transformation across the entire manufacturing value chain by disrupting all aspects of production, from research and development to engineering and design, factory operations, and sales and support.

IoT will redefine human and machine interaction by adding connectivity to every kind of machine, from mobile devices to traditional appliances to wearable devices.  Models like intelligent predictive maintenance, proactive replenishment, and inventory monitoring, along with pay-as-you-go, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications will make manufacturers more efficient and profitable.

In this webinar you'll learn how IoT is creating new opportunities for businesses to improve efficiencies, reduce operational costs, and decrease time-to-market.

This session will detail some of the ways IoT can be leveraged to address manufacturing industry challenges such as:  

  • Consolidation or Modernization of B2B
  • Optimize the flow of information across the manufacturing value chain
  • Securely embracing new technologies to improve operations
