Today less than ten percent of all assets are connected to the Cloud. One might wonder why this number is so low, while the technology has been out there for many years. According to the writer Clay Shirky, a revolution does not happen when society adopts new tools, it happens when society adopts new behavior.
These behavioral changes happen at this moment, resulting in a large growing Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) industry. We have reached a point where Industrial IoT becomes accepted. Many companies now see its service and added value. In the future the Industrial Internet of Things could add $15 trillion to the global economy by 2030 (source: Accenture), so this is definitely worth looking at when considering improving your company services.
“Revolution does not happen when society adopts new tools, it happens when society adopts new behavior.”

When applying IoT to your services, the functionality of your assets can be performed easily with a remote service. Because many systems are on the way for various types of directives it gets harder to maintain fleet management and to apply service. By adding a telemetry-module to your equipment you will have the possibility to do earlier and better diagnostics, before sending over a service engineer. For example, think of your assets reporting their needs to be refilled with supplies or to report a malfunction. Even preventive maintenance algorithms are used to determine when the asset will break down. This report can prepare for maintenance and increase the effectiveness of your fleet. Asset management can be applied to many business cases and most investments are earned back within a few years.
