Manufacturing Business Technology
As one of the leading industries that was an early adopter of process automation, manufacturing is often ahead of the curve when it comes to seeking ways to improve processes – yet still has work to do in the technology adoption realm. While the trend for cloud adoption is increasing over on-premises solutions overall, some organizations are hesitant to make the transition to the cloud.
CIO Review
3D printing has enabled the creation of complex components with reduced costs and turnaround times in the highly-regulated environment of aerospace. Especially in the field of 3D printing of service parts, the aerospace industry can benefit from the increased asset uptime, reduced costs, lighter components, more durability, and increased customer satisfaction.

Blockchain technology is moving into more and more commercial and enterprise applications — from supply chain to energy production and even potential automotive applications. The ever-expanding Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is going to require solutions for automation and security alongside its solutions for connectivity and blockchain, with its promise of facilitating encrypted, automated and verifiable transactions between systems, looks poised to be the answer. 
IOT For All
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the future of the oil and gas industry. As the Internet of Things’ (IoT) network of devices, sensors and software brings about change in consumers’ daily lives, this particular industry is lagging behind. Oil and gas have been facing challenges, largely attributed to the antiquated and inefficient approach that many companies take to maintain assets and collect data. This article looks at five ways that IIoT will revolutionize the oil and gas industry.
