Are you ready for the IoT revolution? The Internet of Things (IoT) will soon be everywhere—embedded in interconnected devices we’ll use every day. Already, cars, appliances, and wearables transmit realtime data to improve performance . . . and new IoT products can even save your life. Consumer goods are just the tip of the iceberg. Amid projections that 30 billion smart devices will be linked in the near future, traditional companies such as Siemens, GE, and John Deere are preparing for profound changes to management, strategy, manufacturing, and maintenance. With the IoT, for example, sensors warn when a critical assembly-line part is about to break, or track how customers actually use products. Data hubs collect and share information instantly with departments, supply chains, partners, and customers— anchoring the organization and replacing hierarchies with circular systems. The Future is Smart documents the shifts now under way. Written by a leading IoT strategist, the book explains how companies are tapping technology to: Optimize supply chains • Maximize quality • Boost safety • Increase efficiency • Reduce waste • Cut costs • Revolutionize product design • Delight customers For those who are ready, the opportunities are endless. This big-think book reveals concrete actions for thriving in this new tech-enabled world.
