Event description


Inviting manufacturers and digital tech businesses to "Industrial IoT and Analytics" at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, University of Huddersfield on 12th July.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to learn more about this Fourth Industrial Revolution and the opportunities for your business.

According to the Harvard Business Review article "Why IoT Analytics Are a Manufacturer’s Most Important Tool" (December 2016), the Internet of Things (IoT) and the associated data collection possibilities provide a huge opportunity for manufacturers to transform their businesses through real-time insights.

Come and ride the IoT Analytics wave with Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire and get connected to people and technology in this space.
