WEBINAR: ASSET
MANAGEMENT AND IIoT

Each month, columnist Drew Troyer provides
additional information related to his "Seeking
Reliability" column (p. 48 in this issue) as part
of our e-newsletters. This month he provides a
sample asset-management policy.

In a recent podcast, Schneider Electric's Kim
Custeau discusses mobile technology trends, the
role mobile systems are playing in companies
of all sizes, hurdles that might be slowing future
growth, and data-security issues.

Connecting your smart devices, through an
asset-management program, to the Industrial
Internet of Things is a good way to begin
realizing the benefits of IIoT technology,
including mobile monitoring.
