"With the existing network of sensors and gauges on the plant floor today, getting data has not been the issue. The challenge for manufacturers is to analyze that information to allow manufacturers to make better plant floor decisions."

-Sal Spada, research director for ARC Advisory Group during the June 2 Webcast on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Modern manufacturing plants collect enormous amounts of information each day. The difficult part has been managing that information flow, and more importantly, making better use of that information flow to affect change within the plant. The promise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the ability to use modern data management and storage tools to deliver actionable data to workers at all levels of the plant when they need it.
