When building websites and applications, too many companies make decisions- on everything from new product features, to look and feel, to marketing campaigns- using subjective opinions rather than hard data.

Manufacturing presents one of the largest opportunities for seizing the value of IoT integration — and among the fastest to adopt IoT solutions. Manufacturers see IoT as an improvement to help manage the large number of assets involved in manufacturing and to reduce the time it takes to make products.
Still, many wonder what value IoT can actually bring their business. This interactive eBook from IDC and Schneider Electric identifies the top reasons to invest in IoT, and how to ensure manufacturers get the most out of their investments.
Schneider Electric surveyed over 400 worldwide machine builders and factory end users in 2015. The questions they answered all centered around what their machines and plants would need to look like in 2020 if their businesses were to sustain growth and boost productivity. Their feedback has shaped (and will continue to shape) Schneider Electric digitized solution investments.
Key requirements identified included:
• Tools that could accommodate a younger, less skilled, and less experienced workforce
• A need for simpler integration through open software connectivity and more open field buses
• A need for whole lifecycle support of the products they purchase
Read this eBook to see answers to some of these identified key points from those surveyed.
