The factory environment is fast-paced, meaning operational efficiency is paramount:
Implementation Is Time-Consuming and Expensive
“…companies should embrace (and never fear) a multi-vendor ecosystem with best-of-breed, interoperable hardware and software.”
Leaders Don’t Understand the Tangible Value of the IIoT
Enterprise connectivity helps manufacturers simplify IIoT projects, resulting in faster time to value with a standard, scalable connectivity architecture.
48% of manufacturers surveyed by ARC Advisory Group say “having to address multiple connectivity standards” is a key drawback of machine connectivity.
A scalable data collection infrastructure is standardized and less complicated, meaning engineers can easily leverage data in their applications from a single source.
Manufacturers focused on Industry 4.0 efforts quickly realize that collecting data from the complex, heterogeneous environments on the factory floor can be challenging.
But IIoT-ready enterprise connectivity illuminates factory data across all assets, so you can overcome these four common Industry 4.0 roadblocks and ignite enterprise-wide digital transformation.

Failing to understand how the IIoT can provide value is the first common roadblock to successful Industry 4.0 implementation. Industry analyst ARC Advisory Group surveyed manufacturers about the business value of connectivity:
Illuminate Your Enterprise with Faster Time to Value
When asked how much value their company derives from machine data each year, 48% of respondents claim they don’t know.
Manufacturing industry leaders are seeing benefits such as maximized revenue growth, reduced operational costs, and increased asset efficiency across the enterprise when they focus on connectivity as the foundation for IIoT. Want to see what IIoT is doing for your peers? Check out these case studies:
Vendor Lock-In Isn’t Scalable
According to LNS Research, 45% of manufacturers aren’t clear on which connections exist on their plant floor—or the data they’re missing out on.
In an ARC Advisory Group survey of manufacturers who use and connect industrial machinery, 62% say the “time and expense of implementing connectivity” is a key drawback of connecting to machines.

Enterprise connectivity ensures critical production data is standardized and accessible to the teams responsible for deploying an IIoT or Industry 4.0 implementation. With scalable IIoT applications, teams only need to be trained on one system.
IIoT-ready enterprise connectivity simplifies your implementation, enabling manufacturers to quickly collect, standardize, and scale data connectivty across the entire enterprise. Quickly connecting to legacy machines without upgrading minimizes inefficiencies and reduces costs typically associated with deploying a new project.
