Ask not what IoT is, but what it can do for you!

The Internet of Things (IoT) is perceived to mean many different things to many people. When it comes down to it the definition is not that important.

What is important is what does IoT mean to your business?

If you operate a business that relies upon the efficiency, reliability and quality of your processes to produce viable product, then IoT may have meaning to you.

IoT will not add one bit of value to your business without you understanding the problems you need to address and the outcomes you seek to achieve. For this reason, IoT is not a revolutionary new solution, it is an enabling framework for the development and implementation of sensor based data acquisition and analytics solutions.

In its simplest form the IoT value chain is:

Sensor > Connectivity > Platform > Analytics > Applications > Knowledge > Optimisation > Productivity

  • Sensors – sensor selection and installation – generating the right data
  • Connectivity – enabling secure transmission of data from sensor via the internet (LPWAN, Cellular, Satellite)
  • Platform – the database application to manage data, connectivity and quality
  • Analytics – statistics, visualisation, machine learning
  • Applications – dashboards, mimics, digital twins
  • Knowledge – operational intelligence, actionable data, decision making
  • Optimisation – using knowledge to drive positive change
  • Productivity – this is the outcome

It takes a fairly diverse and unique skill set to deliver continuity across the entire IoT value chain. Emergent Group has the skills and experience to provide a continuous chain of custody for your valuable business data and can assist you with making the changes you need to secure a productive future.
