Monetizing IIoT - real life use cases in the manufacturing space

Virtual Conference sponsored by Siemens

May 30, 2019

11:00 AM until 12:30 PM EDT

What you'll learn:

There is certainly no single, standardized way of getting started and enabling an organization to implement and monetize IloT. Our goal in this virtual conference: is to inspire manufacturers by showing approaches and perspectives that they might embrace to achieve impact at scale. In other words, our speakers will explain, using real examples, how to make money using lloT. It is always interesting how others have done it.
Register to our webinar to better understand challenges, strategic vision, outcomes and the opportunities created by IloT.

The State of the Market


Stephen Mellor – CTO, Industrial Internet Consortium

Session Description:

Like many revolutions, the exact date of the initiation of we call the “industrial internet” is not exact, but many time it toa paper by two economists in 2012. Their top-down estimate of the effect on the industrial internet on the market is huge, but their bottom-up estimate of a 1% improvement from asset efficiency was borne out in half the time.

This presentation:
– outlines the possibilities for the market
– positions the current state of the market
– outlines the next wave, which is already (partially) upon us, and
– looks to the future
Remember that the URL was invented 40 years ago, and Sir Tim Berners-Lee never imagined typing this up on the train with
his ticket read from his phone!
