Industrial Internet –minor
The concept of "Industrial Internet" has recently emerged as a topic of considerable attention in the industry both internationally and in Finland. While covering other well-known themes such as "Internet of Things" and "Cyber-Physical Systems", the level of ambition of the concept has been raised to no less than changing profoundly how the manufacturing industries base their operations to ICT by exploiting novel technologies such as sensors, actuators, wireless networks, clouds, computational modeling and simulation, and mobile user interfaces - in short, bringing manufacturing industries and their ecosystems truly to Internet age.
Industrial internet encompasses the application of information and communications technology in industry and within society for improving the efficiency of operations and the creation of new added value for customers and users. Internet and mobile technologies have changed to become generally and easily available tools with which it is ever simpler and cheaper to develop applications.
