The Emerging IIoT Start-up Ecosystem—Innovative Start-ups in the IIoT Landscape

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has created a new wave of transformation for manufacturers over the past decade. IIoT brings together brilliant machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. A growing number of industrial facilities are exploring the power of IIoT to optimize their business performance. In a highly competitive global marketplace, industrial organizations seek “digital intelligence” to manage hundreds of thousands of assets in an enterprise to address the critical demands of manufacturers. Not surprisingly, the IIoT’s potential payoff is enormous.
