The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) marries a number of broad trends and shifts: Machine Learning, Big Data, Internet of Things, Machine-to-Machine communication.
The basic idea is to make the machines that power our economy “smarter” by gathering and analyzing data, often in real-time, and making appropriate responses on the fly.
Real-world benefits are taking shape in many ways, from equipment that provides a heads-up when service is needed to smart assisted-living homes for seniors that monitor daily activities and alert care providers.
Through our Accenture Labs, we’re investing significant research and development into new capabilities and service offerings.
We’re focused on how this disruptive technology will change business models and how clients can use it for competitive advantage and sustainable value.
