Manufacturing and The Internet of Things
September 25, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Manufacturing. The Internet of Things (IoT) for manufacturers can be confusing. Some consider IoT a passing fad or the next big wave in manufacturing B2B. Some see traditional M2M manufacturing connectivity as the IoT. Others view IoT as either a new, separate thing, or the continuation of a recent trend. To clear up this tumult, we’ll explore the opportunity IoT holds for tomorrow’s manufacturers in terms of business simplification, merits, benefits, use cases, and roadblocks. The experts speak. Joe Barkai, Manufacturing Analyst: “For there to be an Internet of Things, someone has to put the Internet in those things, and then those things have to be placed on the Internet and connected in a manner that realizes a meaningful and worthwhile business value.” Girish Hedge, Greene Tweed: “The Internet of Things is making manufacturing ‘relevant’ again.” Sam Castro, SAP: “What gets measured gets improved” (Robin S. Sharma). Join us for Manufacturing and The Internet of Things.
Future of Business with Game Changers, Presented by SAP
Tuesday at 7 AM Pacific Time/10 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
The world of business is being dramatically impacted by the increasing adoption of the Cloud, and by the mainstreaming of new technologies that have hitherto been the domain of imaginative Hollywood films, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, augmented reality and more.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers for our series on how modern technology is completely redefining the world of business, on the Future of Business with Game-Changers.
With digital transformation becoming a mission-critical imperative, every company needs to simultaneously chart its future path while keeping an eye on the rear-view mirror to see who’s coming up in the fast lane to overtake them. In many ways, this is making every business a technology business, no matter their size, industry or geographic location.
