The Internet of Things (IoT) is certainly becoming “the next big thing” and companies that want an IoT strategy will need solution partners and advice to be able to embrace the technology. Aside from connected devices, IoT mashups are enabling companies to leverage existing investments in ERP, PLM, MES, CRM, LMS and MRP solutions without the traditional rip and replace methodology. The thought of a custom tailored user interface that leverages role based data from multiple systems is extremely appealing. Clearly, it’s the future trend of how companies choose to interact with enterprise wide data versus custom developed solutions that require exponentially more money to maintain and upgrade. This white paper explores the use of connected devices within the medical device manufacturer space, raises thought provoking questions and talks about how this technology revolution fits within regulated environments.
