Time to Rethink What’s Possible with the Internet of Things

When companies first started developing smart products – products with software built in like cars, refrigerators and medical devices – this was considered revolutionary. Now it’s ubiquitous.

Connectivity, or what we all now refer to as the internet of things (IoT), promises to yet again revolutionize the whole concept of what a product is, along with the entire product lifecycle management process.

In many respects, manufacturers will need to transform their business to take full advantage of the IoT opportunity. Companies like National Instruments (NI), PTC and Kalypso are investing heavily in this area, and partnering to provide end-to-end IoT solutions that enable companies to develop, deploy and service their smart, connected products.

At NIWeek this year, NI, PTC and Kalypso collaborated to create a smart, connected Santa Cruz mountain bike. This simple, easily relatable example of a smart, connected product scratches the surface of what's possible with IoT. We hope it becomes the spark that ignites action as engineers prepare for big changes ahead.

Now is the time to rethink what's possible. 

You can see the bike at booth 443 or during Wednesday's keynote.
