Editor’s Note: Today’s blog is the final part in a mini blog series from Fergus O’Sullivan with Cloudwards.net. In it, Fergus shows us how the use of IoT technology provides the analytics and machine learning capabilities that allow us to avoid potential risks.
Editor’s Note: Today’s blog is by Fergus O’Sullivan with Cloudwars.net. In this mini blog series on, Fergus will teach us about the Internet of Things; What is the Internet of things, how it works, how to use it, and what risks may occur. We hope you enjoy.
If you have been following the tech news even a little bit over the last few years, you’ve heard of the Internet of Things.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has been a major topic among manufacturers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs) for several years. However, the IIoT is beginning to encroach on all aspect of manufacturing and supply chain management for its wide-ranging deployment and application to improving processes.
With the increasing prevalence of online connectivity and the recent inclination toward Industry 4.0 as well as the Industrial Internet of Things, manufacturers are using technology to enhance their operations in ways they never before thought possible to get manufacturing efficiency.

According to one of Maurice Conti’s TED presentations, we arrived to a new, augmented age, in which Artificial Intelligence gains a new role.
Supply chain logistics providers made significant changes in standard operations in 2016. From ditching age-old tactics of shipping products now, to advancing the capabilities of augmented reality in logistics, our logistics trends highlighted expected improvements in the supply chain, many of which came true.
The era of paper-based systems and physically monitoring the supply chain is ending. In place of long paper trails and maintenance schedules, machines with the capacity to communicate their needs and issues via the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) are becoming an essential component of effective processes.
The Internet has already transformed the way individuals interact, make choices, and process information. In the shipping and manufacturing industries, that same “worldwide web” is now being deployed to encourage more energy-efficient operational and communication strategies for a low-carbon economy, thanks to IoT Tech.
Logistics faces a crisis. The driver shortage appears to be worsening, customers are demanding lower rates, oversight is becoming more intense, and stakeholders demand reductions across the board. Overcoming these difficulties seems impossible, but there is a solution.
Ah yes, the Internet of Things (IoT), welcomed to the manufacturing family like a returning military hero – well, mostly. Indeed, the IoT has been commended for making the 10% of manufacturing plants and factories who use it more efficient and productive, through web connectivity right at this very moment.If you form part of the 10%, welcome to industry 4.0.
