What's a common IIoT project funding approach?

3 recommendations for successful IIoT project funding 

Understanding who initiates IoT projects — and, perhaps more importantly, who funds IoT projects — helps identify how to launch an ultimately successful project in your company. Here are some recommendations:

1. Strategically budget projects
Increasingly, the majority of IIoT projects are budgeted, indicating that they are indeed part of the strategic planning process.

2. Scale your long-term investments
It is critical to consider as well the longer-term budget requirements of managing, maintaining, and expanding to include other endpoints and connected "things” over time.

3. Align IT and the lines of business
Creating the link between the business needs and IT requirements early in the process will alleviate issues in the long term.

How do you select an IIoT Vendor?

What makes a good IIoT partner? 

As manufacturers are making investments to digitally transform their business, there are several key criteria they are using to select a vendor(s) to support their IIoT projects. According to recent research of manufacturers that have deployed IIoT offers and solutions, the key elements to look for in your vendors include the following

1. Proven track record
Focusing on the key benefits of an IIoT investment such as internal improvements and cost containment will help raise the bar of the return on investment in IIoT, in turn, persuading C-suite management to invest.

2. Robust partner
Any IIoT solution will need technology elements from a variety of vendors; however, those vendors that can pull together a holistic IIoT solution through strategic technology partnerships should be strongly considered.

3. Industry-specific
Vendors who have knowledge of the manufacturing sector and familiarity with your company’s pain points in specific business processes will help shorten the time to create an IIoT project concept to trial.

4. Interoperable approach to solutions
Vendors who employ an “open” approach to their technology offerings provide a flexible and future-proofed option for longer-term IIoT requirements. For a heterogeneous equipment environment, machine-to-machine communication is essential to driving efficiencies.
