It’s exciting to see another IoT Day come and go. We’ve been big proponents from the beginning, even though many people can get intimidated by the big promise of IoT, which is that capturing trillions of points of data will make machines smarter, more efficient and less prone to breakdown – monitoring leads to earlier detection of problems, and capturing, synthesizing and analyzing data across machines, locations and even clients will enable better predictive and preventative maintenance, using everything from simple regression analysis to complex, AI/Machine learning capabilities. This is happening, in some cases, and will become more common over time. The challenge is justifying the ROI of IoT deployments today.
At TeamViewer, we believe there are simple, immediately and realizable benefits to deploying IoT today. What if there was a technology and solution which easily and securely connected the right expert with machines/devices experiencing issues, whether located in the next building or across the globe, and enabled that expert to interact with the device as if they were standing in front of it? No “truck roll”, no time wasted scheduling visits or deploying experts to far-off locations – imagine, with the click of one button, securely connecting expert with machine – that’s what TeamViewer IoT is all about.
TeamViewer leverages its rich history of being able to connect anyone to anything to access and control IoT devices. Whether it be the French space agency using TeamViewer to connect to medical devices on the international space station to monitor astronauts’ health or University of Toronto BlueSky racing team members monitoring individual systems and components within its car a few hundred feet away, TeamViewer IoT solutions solve real world problems every day. Organizations of all types can leverage IoT and sensor devices today with your own unique set of tangible benefits saving time, money and even making space travel safer for humankind!
