An Evolving IoT Takes on Operational Issues

The Internet of Things is evolving from concept to reality, and from technology to the way technology is used to solve real operational problems.

we’re talking about real success stories.” Amid the dozens of companies showcasing IoT solutions and the 18,000 expected attendees to the annual event are a series of juried testbeds that demonstrate the real-world applications of IoT data collection, security, and networking.

From improving crop production to developing a more efficient way to monitor and optimize natural gas pumping to improving overall manufacturing production, the testbeds demonstrate a few of the ideas that are being used today to turn data into measurable results.

“We’re focusing on the uses of technology, and that’s now driven from the business case.” “We’re starting to see some real metrics, not just from the testbeds, and the paybacks are great,” added William Hoffman, president of the IIC, which produces the World Congress in partnership with Fira Barcelona.

It’s such a big space, and the challenge is getting everyone connected, and then make everything interconnected.” Manufacturers often cite two barriers to IoT adoption: the perceived cost of implementation and training, and the security of the data.
