IIoT’s Immense Entrepreneurial Opportunities

The optimistic temperament of successful entrepreneurship is what has tremendously shaped and revolutionized our world today. Our present world as it still unfolds is the direct results of the incredible vision, the extremely indefatigable beliefs and inconceivable risks implementations of past entrepreneurs.

From Thomas Edison to Andrew Carnegie to Henry Ford, to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, from Jeff Bezos to Larry Page and Sergey Brin and so on. All, at some point of beginning, were deemed crazy and their ideas were reckoned absurd, improbable and at best unworkable.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) may seem a little remote and far-flung but so was the internet, search engines, World Wide Web, smart phones etc just a couple of years ago. Is it not still fresh in our memories and isn’t it just like yesterday when we were all sated with our Nokia 3310’s? But what’s the fad today?

Is the stratum of technological operation not overly sophisticated today in comparison to just seventeen years of human prediction judging from the eon of Nokia 3310 till date? There is a definite, eclectic and very prospective sphere of entrepreneurial influence and exploration in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Incredibly smart entrepreneurs are currently evaluating and assessing the plethora of opportunistic forays readily available in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), whether it’s Automated production, Digitized manufacturing, Integrated control systems, Smart factories, Analytics and big data, Industry integration strategies, Cloud, Medical device manufacturing, Artificial intelligence (AI), Asset management and maintenance, Transportation and Logistics (T&L), Freight monitoring, Aviation, IT security, Communication systems, Intelligent data systems, Supply chain monitoring systems, Vehicle/transport tracking, Smart grid for electricity, Oil and Gas, Network transmission/distribution, Predictive maintenance, Data-enabled services, Robotics, Mining, Internet of Robotic Things (IoRT), Connected ecosystems, Advanced software’s, Cyber-physical connected systems (CPCS), Cyber-physical production systems (CPPS),  Innovation, Connected logistics, Facility management, Smart warehousing, Energy consumption optimization, Industrial heating, Ventilation, and Air conditioning, Ozone, Gas and temperature monitoring in industrial environments, Industrial connectivity solutions and so on.
