IIoT Edge Gateway Software and MQTT Server Lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution
IIoT edge gateway software and MQTT Server are leading the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is the application of digital technologies and advanced analytics to transform operations, whether in product industries, in end-to-end supply chains, or in manufacturing.
Consulting firm McKinsey & Company scanned over 1,000 sites around the world to find the companies that have been able to scale these technologies in a way that makes a real difference. What they found interesting is that the difference between the companies doing this well and everyone else is not actually in what technologies they’re using or what kind of advanced analytics algorithms they’ve deployed, but rather in how they’re deploying.
In their new report, they have 92 use cases that are driving value, and it’s coming together to fundamentally change how we manufacture in the future. One example they cite is an American multinational consumer goods corporation’s manufacturing site that was about to be shut down. They decided to go all in with IIoT edge gateway software and MQTT server, and three years later, they showed a 160% increase in productivity. It is now one of the top sites in a massive network.
What is really critical and most differentiated between the companies that are furthest ahead and the ones that are not is the concept of bringing multiple technologies together in service of a specific business outcome. IIoT edge gateway software and MQTT server are allowing companies to reach a whole new level without having to sacrifice cost performance. These companies are achieving these outstanding results not by automating away their workforce, but by empowering them by democratizing technology and data to create a situation where cost and flexibility are no longer trade offs. We can now deliver flexibility at low cost, thereby opening the door to whole new business models.
We’re also seeing an extremely exciting impact on environmental sustainability. Another example cited by McKinsey is a major German chemical and consumer goods company. Using IIoT edge gateway software and MQTT server technology, they put in a digital twin, connected thousands of sensors, and created a cloud between 30 of their sites. They were then able to drive a 38% reduction in energy consumption, and 25% water consumption reduction. To put that in perspective, this is about what 400,000 people consume every year.
