Smart manufacturing is the gateway to digital transformation. Connected smart devices open new windows of visibility into processes. Data and analytics enable better and faster decision making. Seamless connectivity spurs new collaboration.
The Connected Enterprise makes all this possible. It converges plant-level and enterprise networks, and securely connects people, processes, and technologies.
Smart manufacturing and industrial operations embrace a new way forward. This new direction is highly-connected and knowledge-enabled, where devices and processes are connected, monitored, and optimized.
Smart operations require the use of new and disruptive technologies, from analytics and mobile to collaborative machines. These technologies communicate with each other and adapt to internal and external conditions. They also require new strategies that make the most of these technologies to create flexible, efficient, responsive, and secure operations.
Learn how new technologies and strategies can help you create smart, secure operations.
The Industrial Internet of Things era has arrived. This proliferation of connected smart devices can improve virtually every aspect of business performance.
This potential is not lost on manufacturers. Three-quarters of manufacturers say they will increase their use of smart devices or embedded intelligence in production over the next two years. Many manufacturers also say that they remain unsure of how to capitalize on the IIoT. They need to implement the necessary changes in their operations to take advantage of it.
Read how manufacturers plan to apply the IIoT and the readiness challenges they must first overcome.

See how organizations turn their connected enterprise journeys into success stories.
Put the Industrial Internet of Things to work for you. Integrated automation and information open the door to new productivity-enhancing innovations that include self-aware equipment and collaborative robots.
Through The Connected Enterprise, we help food and beverage manufacturers offer a more agile response to the change in consumer tastes.
In a dynamic industry like oil and gas, you are continually challenged to find new ways to achieve greater efficiencies across your production environments. Big data integration can be that new game changer.
A connected mine offers major opportunities for mining companies to improve operational efficiencies, reduce safety risks, and drive better decision making.
Enabling innovations like the Internet of Things, network convergence, cloud computing, big data and analytics, and mobility can help life science industries operate effectively.
Wastewater companies that use an integrated control and visualization system can expect reductions in design time. They can also experience enhanced process control with advanced networking and diagnostic capabilities. Increased access to process data offers better preventive and predictive maintenance.
