IoT Data Science that Drives Operational Excellence

IoT Data Science that Drives Operational Excellence

Episode 41

If you’re implementing IoT within your organization it makes sense to target improving operational efficiency; it’s easier for the bean counters to sign off on than some esoteric new IoT business opportunity. This, as I’ve discussed before, is the thin edge of the IoT wedge for getting a pilot started. Next – what OPEX should you go after? Find a metric that everyone in the company or business unit or department, understands and lives by and then apply IoT there first. If people have a stake in it they will be more willing to change, readjust processes and help make the project successful. Rather than making it a top-down edict, power the IoT project from the bottom-up.

Here’s What We’ll Cover in this Video:

  • Predictive maintenance in the utility industry.
  • Accessing whether your company is ready for IoT data and if not, how to become data mature company before introducing IoT.
  • Two ways IoT will augment the current data science of an organization.
  • Finding the operational metric to focus your IoT analytics on.
