India lagging far behind China in IIoT adoption: Accenture
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) could be a game changer for India, but the country is lagging far behind China in its adoption, a top Accenture official has said. According to the consultancy giant, IIoT refers to a universe of intelligent products, processes and services that communicate with each other and with people over the Internet and promises to be the most transformative industrial revolution yet for manufacturers.
