The Internet of Things - the latest wave of technological change has brought about unprecedented opportunities, along with new risks, to industry and enterprise. Combining the global reach of the Internet, with a greater ability to directly control the physical world, including your organisation’s machines, factories and infrastructure that define the modern landscape. The Industrial Internet is transformative. It will change the basis of competition, redraw industry boundaries and create a new wave of disruptive companies, just as the current Internet has given rise to behemoths such as Amazon, Google and Netflix. However, the vast majority of organizations are still struggling to understand the implications of the Industrial Internet on their businesses and industries. For these organizations, the risks of moving too slowly are fast becoming very real.
Where there is risk however, there is also opportunity. Gartner predicts that by 2020, the top 20% of most profitable companies will be those that adopted IOT technologies early. Increased operational efficiency, reduced risk and waste – the potential is endless. However, like the Internet in the late 1990s, the Industrial Internet is currently in its early stages. Many important questions remain, including how it will impact existing industries, value chains, business models and workforces, and what actions business and strategy leaders need to take now to ensure long-term success.
