The Industrial Internet is bringing about a profound transformation to global industry, by connecting more intelligent machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. This deeper meshing of the digital world with the world of machines has the potential to bring enormous economic benefits. We have estimated that this new wave of innovation could boost global GDP by as much as $10-15 trillion over the next 20 years, through accelerated productivity growth.
Discussions of the Industrial Internet tend to focus on the machines and the data, but people at work are an equally essential element of this revolution. In fact, it is exactly by changing the way people work that the Industrial Internet will deliver its benefts in terms of greater effciency, lower costs, and ultimately more and better jobs and rising living standards. Just as the Internet has fundamentally changed the ease with which we access information and interact with each other in our everyday lives, so the Industrial Internet will transform the way in which we can leverage information and collaborate in the workplace.
