At IoT Sources we often reference how imperative collaboration is amongst the IT team, the OT team and the business units for successful IoT execution. Universal adoption and buy-in of revenue-generating connected products require OT players to work directly with IT teams and business unit leaders. It is critical that together, they establish a flexible system for integrating data from multiple systems across the enterprise to produce insights that create time to value. In this regard, enterprises should not plan to construct one universal IoT platform, yet instead develop a centralized flexible framework for supporting the basic pillar functionality necessary to run any IoT application. This way, all IOT-based applications can plug into a common enterprise API that each line of business can use to deliver on their unique value proposition, both internally and externally.
Is your company creating an “innovation lab” to build a new IoT platform for your enterprise?
