all vertical markets, the Industrial market offers many opportunities
for IoT. For example, allowing a manufacturing firm to draw upon data
from all parts of its activities, feeding into analytics processes from
which insights are derived that can positively affect the optimization
and efficiency of the company, or using that information to prevent
machine failure before it occurs."

while promising, is not without its challenges. Cost is a key issue in
the profit margin calculation and with many different parts of the
business vying for investment any expenditure will come under
significant scrutiny and require ROI (Return on Investment)
justification, whether it is staffing, operational technology upgrades,
or technology-driven initiatives such as IoT."
