Cloud-based Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution innovations are enabling a historical service-oriented metamorphosis of the global industry with support of national initiatives such as “Industrial Internet”, “Industry 4.0”, and “Internet+”. This presentation will first brief the key business and technical drivers of these value-driven innovations. It will then exemplify the ongoing global industry servitization via several deployed commercial use cases. Finally, it will elaborate on several technology and education challenges in creating disruptive IoT Cloud Services.
