Once we add computing capabilities, sensors, and communications with an IP address to nearly everything manufactured, then the Internet of Things (IoT) become reality. IoT is here today. It's real. Only a small number of companies have started to gain experience using this technology, but this technology will change how companies design, engineer, and manufacture. And the market will change quickly. The fast moving companies will gain the advantages that IoT technologies offer.

Why does a CAD & PLM company invest in the Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and Augmented Reality? If you are Jim Heppelmann, it could be due to a vision which no longer views a digital twin as a static, albeit perfect, digital copy of the physical product. It could be due to a vision which sees a digit twin as a living digital model of the physical product. A vision where the digital model is not only digitally perfect, but where the digital and the real come together, meet, interact, and are - literally - linked together.
A recent study showed that 80% of companies have increased revenue through their investment in Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Is that a surprise?
