Customer Technology Trends – IoT and Mobile – A Winner in Round 4

About a year ago, we wrote about our series of Customer Technology Trends reports, and how we took a beating on the first couple, but each successive round had gotten better.

Well, this year’s round 4 report, Hydraulic Components and IoT in Mobile Machinery, by IHS Markit, was a clear winner.  The report is based on a survey of engineers across markets and disciplines, and around the world.  It covers expectations for the adoption of Internet of Things capabilities in mobile hydraulics, as well as insights into the drivers and barriers companies are facing as they consider IoT functionality.

The report is the most downloaded from the series to date, and the webinar based on the report held September 21, was one of the best attended NFPA webinars.

If you haven’t seen the report, or if you missed the webinar (or both), you can login and find them on the NFPA website here.
