CBT Names the Top 25 Industrial IoT Influencers for 2021

CBT Names the Top 25 Industrial IoT Influencers for 2021

Industrial IoT is forecasted to be a $263.4 Billion Dollar Market by 2027 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.7% over the next 6 years, according to Meticulous Research. Industrial IoT (IIoT) incorporates IoT with numerous industrial processes, including automation, optimization, monitoring, maintenance, and networking. At CBT, we believe that advances in IIoT will continue to accelerate through the convergence of two core but traditionally independent technologies: informational technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), along with innovations in rapidly emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and augmented reality (AR).

For the last few years, CBT has been implementing award-winning solutions at scale in the Industrial IoT environment, including the industry-renowned Refinery of the Future project at Texmark Chemicals in Houston, TX. To achieve Texmark’s vision for the Refinery of the Future, CBT orchestrated complementary technologies from a robust ecosystem of industry-leading partners including PTC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Aruba, Intel, GuardHat, RealWear, and more. Under the direction of CBT, these partners designed and delivered five next-generation Industrial IoT solutions that drive improved safety, efficiency, and productivity: Connected Worker, Asset Integrity Management, Video as a Sensor, Condition Monitoring & Predictive Maintenance, and Worker Health & Safety.
