Smart Systems, Asset Management, and Strategic Services Innovation
What Are Smart Systems?
Smart Systems are a new generation of computing systems and information architectures. These systems benefit from the collision of technological advancements such as machine learning, platforms and predictive analytics, while connectivity allows for the proliferation of data across assets which comprise our economy, providing end-users with enhanced control and insight into their operations.
Where Are We Today?
The new world driven by networked services is one in which every connected machine turns manufacturers, and in many cases others along the value chain, into a new kind of “smart service” business. It bends the traditional linear value chain into a “feedback loop” through which data rich heartbeats and insights will continually flow back through the complex business alliances that create, distribute, and service those systems.
Unfortunately, while most “product-centric” businesses are now embracing the concept of growth creating services, many are not developing new business models and not investing in new digital systems to realize the true strategic potential and value.
