APQC has gathered and analyzed information from 626 global organizations about their manufacturing practices, focusing on digitalization and the adoption of emerging technologies. One key area of investigation is the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) in manufacturing.

One caveat is that IoT systems don’t work unless there is a data management and analysis strategy to do something with the vast amounts of data collected by the sensors.
