The Industrial Internet: The Opportunities ... and the Roadblocks

by Richard Mark Soley

In this article, Richard Soley discusses the evolution of the Internet from connecting people and systems to connecting things that exchange vast amounts of data. He defines the Industrial Internet as the intersection of the Industrial Revolution and the Internet Revolution and provides several examples of the opportunities it presents. Soley cautions that the transformation will not be without challenges and outlines the business model changes and security, privacy, and interoperability issues that will need to be addressed. Drawing on his many years of experience with interoperability standards at the Object Management Group (OMG), Soley ends with a discussion of the need for a collaborative ecosystem and standardization in order to realize the promised benefits of the IoT.
