The dawn of a digital industrial era
Internet of Things (IOT) links objects to the Internet, enabling new insights and creating opportunities to improve operations, streamline automation and lower costs. With network capacity embedded in more and more machines and devices a growing number of smart things can be managed and monitored via cloud-based applications and the pace of change is accelerating.
