How are you Using your Machine Data?
It’s time to think big: R&D wants the right priorities. Operations wants real-time tracking of remote assets. Sales wants eyes everywhere at the customer site.
As machines get easier and less expensive to connect every year, companies are realizing that the M2M data they create can provide massive benefits beyond the service team. At Axeda Connexion 2012, we asked savvy M2M adopters about what’s next for their M2M strategies, and the answer was clear – Extend the Machine Cloud to the entire organization.
Two-thirds of the M2M innovators at Connexion said they are interested, planning, or scheduled to integrate M2M data with back-end enterprise systems, with the goal of breaking down silos and sharing valuable connected product data to business functions across their organization.
M2M metrics vary from product to product, and can impact reduced time-to-market, improved productivity, and lowered or avoided costs – the possibilities are endless. Our Machine Cloud Infographic highlights some of the processes where back-end integration can have the strongest impact.
These findings demonstrate why the M2M industry is so exciting right now. Organizations are finding ways to leverage business analytics, increase automation, transform their business, and, ultimately, deliver a superior experience for customers.
