Predictive maintenance prevents avoidable shutdowns

When elevators, escalators and construction equipment stand still due to defects, which they do for millions of hours worldwide every year, it's not just an annoyance – it's also expensive. In addition to the resulting loss of business, repair costs can be significant. Predictive maintenance can help. Modern sensor technology, digital connectivity and smart data analytics enable predictive maintenance of all kinds of machinery and devices. According to a study by the World Economic Forum and consulting firm Accenture, it can reduce unplanned downtimes by around 70 percent and cut maintenance costs by nearly 30 percent.
IoT Vendor Benchmark 2017
Competitive strength and portfolio attractiveness of IoT starter kits
A recent survey conducted by PAC on behalf of Deutsche Telekom in September 2016 shows that merely 5 percent of the enterprises surveyed leverage the full potential of IoT. Furthermore, it illustrates that more than half expect cost savings and almost three quarters efficiency gains through the use of IoT solutions in their industry. Hereby 65 percent use external IT providers, especially those with end-to-end competencies and preferably in combination with a plug-and-play solution. This is also confirmed by the latest Experton Vendor Benchmark 2017 for IoT and Industry 4.0. which – for the first time ever – includes a separate category to assess plug-and-play end-to-end IoT solutions. As one of only two providers Deutsche Telekom is listed in the “Leader” quadrant and positively characterized in the trend chart.
