ERP, IIoT and MQTT

MQTT represents a paradigm shift in industrial process control communication, is the primary communication protocol for IoT, and is anticipated to be the standard communication protocol for networked industrial process control devices – the IIoT.

A strategic opportunity may exist for an early market technology leader with a proven low-cost operations stack consisting of IIoT MQTT endpoints (with optional “intelligence at the edge”) providing data which directly result in the creation of orders or material movements in an ERP system, at a cost acceptable to SMEs. MQTT is still new technology for process control, and significant interest may also come from large enterprise investigative projects as they learn and find new strategies.
