Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) adoption still being a problem for some companies, as they face major issues for providing the stimuli and infrastructure necessary to increase the propagation of IoT.
Below are the key challenges prevent the widespread adoption of IoT solutions:-Security: Security challenges for IIoT are the large concern as breaches can cause damage to both individual and organisation financially and operationally. The lack of comprehensive cybersecurity solutions makes them open to risks associated with It convergence and insider threats. Hence, IIoT implementation will be resisted until an organisation has a solid security feature.
Lack of Standards: With missing standards, product design may fail leading to disruptive execution leading to a delay in product development. The main cause behind this is the cost constraint generating problems related to managing and configuring IoT devices.
Connectivity and visibility: IIoT machine management is a critical issue as monitoring them in real time and making sure optimum performance level is necessary for increasing efficiency. Increased visibility and better insights about the machine result in better addressing anomalies and fixing issues proactively. With connectivity being the backbone in IIoT network trouble in synchronising components results in the removal of connected devices affects entire production process.
IIoT Integration: The trickiest challenge of all is the secure integration of Information technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT), without losing any data or creating any vulnerability. Mostly IoT devices common developed in isolation and then integrated into the system hence effective connectivity and synchronisation will need replacement of entire equipment or reliance on false connectivity.
Failure in creation of an infrastructural network, the adoption of Industrial Internet of Things solutions will be impossible but overcoming them will lead to game-changing business opportunities improving productivity and growth.
