In my first post I spoke about the importance of building a business case when implementing the IIoT and how you should think of the IIoT as extending investments, not necessarily replacing them. In that post I covered three use cases – shadow sensing, expanding to semi-automated areas of operations, and connecting distributed systems. You will notice that those are largely new areas of exploration. These haven’t been tried before in many cases, but offer great benefits and are changing the way manufacturing operates.

But IIoT isn’t just offering new possibilities – it’s also changing the way we look at and implement traditional systems. This blog post will cover two ways IIoT and cloud are revolutionizing the traditional ways we do business.
