In today’s ever-evolving business landscape, organizations are constantly seeking innovative strategies to enhance their revenue streams and stay ahead of the competition. The integration of Internet of Things (IoT) technology with different lines of business applications unlocks previously untapped opportunities for automation, empowering businesses to unlock new revenue streams, streamline operations, and deliver exceptional customer experiences. Within the market, IoT for industrial use shows the greatest potential for growth with it reaching an estimated market volume of US$66.28bn in 2023 within the USA alone. With the growing significance of IoT devices across the industry, it has become prudent for enterprises to consider intelligent IoT integration to automate their business processes and streamline their workflows.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things or IoT is the concept where an electronic device or a physical object equipped with embedded sensors that can communicate with a computing system either through a wired or wireless network. IoT devices have become ever more mainstream household appliances with the introduction of Alexa by Amazon. The industry of IoT devices has grown ever since and will become more dominant in the years to come. IoT devices combine a wide range of technologies to integrate the physical and digital world through physical objects embedded with sensors that can monitor external parameters like temperature, motion, auditory inputs, etc. These devices can then communicate with a computer system to monitor and manage the health and actions of the connected objects or execute predefined operations to automate individual or multiple processes.
The Need for Automation through IoT Integration
With the escalating rate of consumption and competition across the industry, enterprises need to analyze and identify every step across their operational pipelines that can be automated to improve their time to market. Modern enterprises already leverage a wide range of software applications to manage the digital processes of their organizations. However, by using connected smart IoT devices to share data with each other and a centralized database in real-time, businesses can exponentially improve their collaboration and coordination between multiple systems and processes to greatly increase their efficiency and productivity. Automation trends in the manufacturing industry are already leveraging IoT to streamline their production pipeline and greater integration of IoT data across the industry can significantly increase the bottom line for enterprises in the years ahead.
Automation through IoT integration also improves supply chain management by providing real-time visibility into inventory levels, shipping status, and other logistics information. Keeping track of hundreds of items manually is prone to data errors. However, with an IoT device, the inventory level of an item can be tracked by sensors to automatically place an order after a certain threshold to eliminate the potential risk of out-of-inventory scenarios.
The advent of the Internet of Things has the potential to revolutionize industrial automation completely. Thus, it is essential that the industry continues to invest and embrace this technology to improve its operations, increase productivity and efficiency, and achieve long-term sustainable business growth.
