Connectivity is NOT the End Game
In this world of the “Internet of Things,” we are seeing connectivity adoption rates that increase exponentially every day. Machines of all sizes and capabilities are being connected to networks; however, manufacturers and machine OEMs are looking to extract real value from this capability, not just connectivity.
At PACK EXPO, we covered this topic on the Innovation Stage and discussed the importance of understanding how the Industrial Internet can help companies gain a competitive edge when aligned with key Operational Excellence strategies. Bob Sperber of Packaging World covered this conversation in his article, GE stresses the executive-level imperative of the industrial Internet.
