Here’s How Companies Benefit From The Internet of ThingS in THREE charts

Slide 1

The Internet of Things will bring massive benefits to consumers.

Slide 2

We can connect our cars, homes, wearable devices, etc. to the Internet to automate processes and track data better.

Slide 3

But it’s not just consumers who will benefit from the Internet of Things (IoT).

Slide 4

There’s a lot at stake for companies too.

Slide 5

A survey by Accenture shows that top-level executives and CEO’s believe the IoT brings three main benefits for businesses.

Slide 7

These benefits are more than just a future expectation.

Slide 8

Employee productivity is already increasing thanks to the Internet of Things.

Slide 9

Microsoft’s IoT solutions have helped a stone-cutting business boost productivity by 33%, and revenue by 70%.

Slide 10

And helped a Jeep factory crank out a new truck body every 77 seconds.

Slide 11

“Productivity is the lifeblood of the Internet of Things (IoT). Our decades-long goal: above all, to create the services, technologies and tools that transform enterprise productivity.” - Barb Edson, Microsoft

Slide 12

But the IoT brings much more than employee productivity.

Slide 13

Utilizing company assets (asset optimization) is also a big part of the Internet of Things.

Slide 14

While “asset optimization” is kind of a boring term, lots of industries are learning its true value.

Slide 15

Because implementing simple technologies -- like sensors -- can make companies much more efficient.

Slide 17

For example, Verizon placed hundreds of wireless sensors across 24 of its data centers.

Slide 18

The result has been an electricity decrease of 55 million kWh annually, and a reduction of 66 million pounds of greenhouse gases each year.

Slide 19

And Intel added predictive maintenance technology to its own factory in Malaysia, and saved the company $9 million as a result.

Slide 20

But that’s not all.

Slide 21

All of that asset management leads to the last main benefit: cost savings.

Slide 22

General Electric uses its Industrial Internet (part of the IoT) software, Predix, to improve asset management.

Slide 23

The company believes a 1% increase in Industrial Internet efficiency will equal billions of dollars in saving for companies.

Slide 24

Source: GE.

Slide 25

GE says the savings comes from making assets more reliable, longer lasting, safer, and better performing.

Slide 26

And Cisco agrees. The company says one of the key drivers of IoT value is cost reductions.

Slide 27

Cisco estimates that $19 trillion will be created from IoT profits and cost savings over the next decade.

Slide 28

Unfortunately, 73% of companies haven’t made any substantial investment in the Internet of Things.

Slide 29

Once companies realize the IoT is more than just connected homes and smartwatches, that’s when the real benefits will begin.
