IOT-infrastructure is key in a complete digital transformation
Do you want to implement a digital transformation plan? Then a digital transformation strategy with financial participation and technical support from senior management is crucial. This plan should include actions with:
- the implementation of pilot projects with a predefined estimate of the return on investment (ROI);
- an estimate of the possible added value for the company of scaling up these pilot projects to the entire plant;
- an estimate of the potential added value for the company of scaling up these pilot projects to other plants of the company in other countries or locations.
The roll-out of these pilot projects is often hampered by the lack of a proper Internet-of-Things (IOT) infrastructure and the related investment. Therefore, an IOT infrastructure should be considered a crucial element of any strategic digital transformation/Industry 4.0 plan.
