The IoT Show Ep 6: Automation (and Disruption) in the Age of IIoT

The IoT Show - Episode 6

The IoT Show delivers valuable insights for industrial organisations on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and topics touching the broader Internet of Things (IoT).

We pick engaging, hot topics, and ask our speakers to advise on situations, opportunities, recommendations and gotchas.

This series is not a sales medium, rather a series of discussions for you to benefit from the experiences and insights of others.

In this – the sixth and final episode – we explore Disruption: Automation, IoT and IIoT

Automation takes on many meanings dependent on the industry. Historically automation was focused on the assets; assets being PLCs or embedded devices, for example.

Automation was getting the asset to do what one wanted it to do. Now it’s more about assets integrated into the broader company and a transition from the ‘asset’ to ‘the enterprise’.
