Investing In the Industrial Internet

The Internet has revolutionized our communications, our core competencies and our business processes. The next wave of the Internet is connecting machines and devices together into functioning, intelligent systems. This Internet of things, machines, computers and people - the Industrial Internet - will work together with unprecedented speed, scale and capabilities and produce transformational business outcomes.

In this revolution, there will be a wave of investments in Industrial IoT: in companies, in processes, in technologies, in capital equipment and in people. The transformation has already begun, but moving forward with an adoption plan for Industrial IoT solutions requires the evaluation of the value proposition, expected return on investment, cost of maintenance and product liability. Security must be a high priority throughout the system lifecycle and wise investments in security can have measurable and sometimes immediate returns.

Is your organization deciding if it should deploy an Industrial Internet strategy? Join us at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, Virginia, USA on Thursday, March 17 as we discuss the benefits and potential roadblocks to adopting the Industrial Internet, investment strategies of the Industrial Internet, and how the traditional Venture Capitalist model is being turned upside-down by this new technological revolution.
