E. Palo Alto, CA – April 20, 2017
The same disruptive “digitization” that swept through the music industry, fundamentally changed enterprise software with “cloud” based applications, and put unprecedented computing power in every pocket and purse with the advent of the “smartphone” is now transforming manufacturing. The Industrial IoT (“IIoT”) is the natural evolution of the marriage of Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT), creating a significant inflection point, and leading us to the fourth industrial revolution, or “Industry 4.0.” Our new report takes a look at the strategic implications of this important trend.
We look at the ways in which market participants are reacting either in terms of restructuring the way they run themselves or acquiring new technologies and assets to tackle their markets in a fundamentally different fashion, or in many cases both.
We’ll also be looking at some exciting new entrants, who are bringing entirely new ways of thinking about and competing in these markets.
We’ll then examine some of the more interesting transactions that have taken place as companies attempt to position themselves strategically in this new competitive arena. Finally, we’ll identify interesting public and private companies that are active in this space, and a few of the more noteworthy recent fundings that have taken place.
