                    A good, physical product is not enough

In the past, most manufacturers built their reputations by making high-quality physical goods. In the face of increasing competition and changing customer expectations, it’s no longer enough to sell a great product. Instead, manufacturers are finding that offering smart, connected products is key to building stronger customer relationships and more resilient revenue.
How to climb the IoT maturity curve
Your journey to making smart connected products isn't all or nothing. Take steps up the IoT maturity curve and create value at each phase. Technical capabilities go hand in hand with your evolving business strategy to offer new value-added connected products and services. As your IoT maturity increases, you'll have everything you need to transition to an Equipment-as-a-Service model.
Remote Monitoring
Connect and monitor your equipment for insights into how it's being used in the field. Your teams can use this data to improve new services offerings and power data-driven product development.
Smart field services
With real-time insights and analytics of historical data, service teams can respond immediately to operational issues—and even anticipate problems before they occur—to improve customer uptime and cut maintenance costs.

Performance management
Continuously improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) with data analytics. Enhance the customer experience and create new outcome-based services through improved uptime, lower energy consumption and better output quality. 
By combining hardware and services into a single package, you can help your customers lower their equipment Total Cost of Ownership and offer flexible equipment costs that reflect changes in demand. Transform your business and offer a new Equipment-as-a-Service business model, delivering on your customers' desire to only pay for defined outcomes.
