On June 28, Interfacing welcomed Kurt Kelley to demonstrate the benefits of embracing Internet of Things (IoT) as part of the transformation strategy. IoT has been at the forefront of enabling business change for several years now, and its adoption curve is steadily rising. IoT is a network of devices, sensors, and connectivity that enable things to connect and exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration into computer-based systems from the physical world, which result in benefits such as efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Through clear and proper expectations, these connected solutions, using post-implementation data, have shown impressive ROIs.

Embracing IoT as part of the digital transformation strategy has the potential to produce bottom-line results through additional revenue, increased efficiencies, and new business models. “There’s always the challenge of ‘How do I interact with this?’,” exclaimed Kurt Kelley, CEO of Excelerated Technology Consulting. User interface is critical to understand potential clients. If things are not meeting their needs, it is in human nature to use what works the easiest. Digital Transformation is nothing more than taking current business and digitizing it in one way or form. By centralizing user desires into a transformative perspective, companies will be able to capture the maximum potential of digital transformation.

IoT can help drive this change, providing organizations with a bigger data ecosystem which can then be transformed into a wide range of operational activities. It provides insight, asset status, and the nature of work. In order to maximize the potential of transformation, IoT should be integrated with the operational systems. It not only lowers barriers of entry, but also minimizes risks and improves customer experience while boosting efficiency and reducing costs.

Digital Transformation is unavoidable if companies want to remain competitive. This type of transformation relies on major forces, for example, IoT, to gain operational efficiencies, deepen customer engagement, strengthen competitive advantage, achieve cost-effectiveness and more.
