In today’s world, data governs all aspects of business decision making, helping to improve operational efficiency and productivity across organizations. The implications of the pandemic are driving organization leaders to look to the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve not just efficiency, but also resiliency.
These concerns are accelerating the need for data and the connection of many more devices to the network. Resource-strapped IT departments must enable new deployment scenarios in places that are not traditionally supported such as in parking lots, warehouses, manufacturing floors and more. These spaces are often unheated, dusty, dirty, and wet. Not just any network will do.
As the world becomes more complex, organizations aim to streamline operations and improve safety
In a world that is becoming more complex, IT leaders need a solution that is streamlined, automated, and extendable – one that leverages the network they already know and trust while providing the automation and security that frees them up to work on the bigger challenges. This will define what the new normal means for their department, their business, and their future.
The implications of the pandemic are driving IT teams to look to not just for efficiency and productivity, but also for resiliency. In fact, 75% of CFOs say they are accelerating their digitization*. (*Gartner, 2020)
The rise of digital business, coupled with a global pandemic, results in IT departments doing far more work with fewer resources. Companies struggle to adjust to a “new normal,” where they are forced to streamline operations even as they broaden their capabilities.
IT leaders are asked to expand their “indoor” connectivity of the network to the “outdoor” world of Industrial IoT. For many in IT, this is new and unfamiliar territory. However, even those with Industrial experience find it challenging due to a large number of suppliers, multiple form-factors, and numerous industrial protocols. Beyond the need to connect it all, security becomes imperative because connecting countless new assets in the network increases the threat surface. For IT, this means more time spent managing the network and extending connections at the exact moment in time when they need greater autonomy to innovate new business solutions.”
