Shift to value with IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) captures and delivers massive amounts of data that surround the people, places, and things in every organisation. Powered by the cloud, IoT embeds sensors in everything from factory floor equipment and pharmaceutical processing to driverless cars.

With intelligence gathering, IoT delivers enormous untapped opportunity. Businesses can use IoT to identify early warning patterns, monitor a person’s health, track production levels and quickly respond without physician intervention. However, most organisations have stockpiled their data instead of mining it. That means they’re missing out on the insights it can provide to rethink their businesses to renew and grow, optimise operations, modernise employee experiences and create new business opportunities.

Focus on your goals – not just the sensors and data

We can help develop and optimise your IoT strategy through design-led approaches, keeping you focused on your end goals, rather than just the sensor or the data. We can help you integrate and use sensor data in your business processes to transform how you work. Whether you’re thinking of using IoT to build a predictive maintenance solution, control office environments, drive operational excellence in rethinking manufacturing processes or embrace IoT Edge, we can help.

A digital twin makes possible the full journey from the physical world to the digital world and back to the physical world. A digital twin can help decision-makers visualise and understand the context around business data – and how they might act on it. At Avanade, we have seen firsthand how digital twins can push enterprises to the next level in their digitisation journey. We have worked side by side with our partners, Accenture and Microsoft, to design, build and implement digital twins in multiple industries.
