Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) – Innovations, Equipments, Companies
When we talk about Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), it is all about the innovative and creative way of by which all machines and other devices are connected to the internet. IIoT takes into regards the machinery and equipment’s of an industry that are enabled to connect and communicate with each other over a network (say internet) without any human intervention.
This technology is helping to boost the productivity as organization is facilitated with filtered analytical report via various software’s that analyses large raw data and filters it to generate relevant result report. IIoT not only connects machines with human beings but it also connects one machine with another resulting in higher efficiency and productivity. It has also strengthened the security related to the operations in an industry.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has a wider scope of function in areas of automotive, oil refinery’s and other manufacturing plant units or industry. Even when you hear or talk about smart cities, there is a major role of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to make it possible.
Following is a list of companies that have evolved in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) segment
Shell Global – It is one of the leading energy & Petrochemicals Company having its operations globally in 70 countries and territories with approx 87000 workforce. Shell has named its digital oilfield as smart fields.
Digital Oilfields – Digital Oilfields or we can say Smart Fields as Shell calls it refers to the oil mining process where Cisco company have built an fully automated infrastructure and production process is carried out with technology like high end sensors, knowledge management, high end analytical tools . , real time management and integrating automation with resulting in higher productivity at lower operating cost.
Accenture – It is world’s leading company that provides management consultancy, technology and outsourcing services. Accenture has its operations in around 200 cities across 56 countries with 323,000 dedicated workforce working for the organization.
