- advising senior management on the management changes required to capitalize on opportunities presented by the Internet of Things, such as providing access to real-time data to all employees who need it to perform their jobs more efficiently and improve decision-making, or breaking down traditional “silos” separating departments that now can use real-time data to collaborate and streamline operations.
- working with supply chain partners and customers to streamline operations based on sharing real-time operating data through XBRL GL and the Internet of Things.
