"Industrial Internet: Bridging the Physical, Digital and Business Divide"
The Industrial Internet is seen as the constructive interference of IoT, Intelligent Machines, Big Data and Analytics but how do critical systems, ones that no one wants to see fail, get connected and take advantage of these trends to deliver value? Examining the range of value to be unlocked will motivate discussion of the technical challenges being addressed in order to bridge this digital physical divide. With customer’s increasing expectations, digitals efficiency of delivery and this quest for value at the end of a wire, IoT is actually closing the loop around business goals and making deep domain knowledge of physical assets essential to reaching those goals.
