Often the value of technology is limitless: save money, save time, save resources, but perhaps one of the biggest benefits of technology is to save lives. This is evident in the story of this year’s 2019 Connected World Awards winner.
The Connected World Awards recognize the most successful user success stories in any vertical industry, including healthcare, agriculture, automotive, and manufacturing, just to name a few. Companies submit for the awards program, explaining how they are using the technology to solve a challenge and identifying the ROI (return on investment) received.
Any company leveraging the IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (artificial intelligence) are encouraged to submit, which can include businesses, government agencies, universities, and more. An independent panel of industry analysts and members of the academic world judge the entries. Each individual score is recorded and the entries are rated by an average score.
Winning submissions will explain the problem/challenge, how the technology was used, and what the payoff of the application is. The score for each entry is based on how the company explains the major challenge it faces and the opportunity that was created by using IoT and AI technologies, as well as the ability to demonstrate quantifiable results.
Some of the results can include increased security, improved customer service, enhanced patient care, faster emergency response time, remote monitoring, predictive analytics, operational efficiencies, monetization, better asset visibility, increased uptime, automated business processes, and more.
In the case of this year’s winner, the outcome is saved lives, among other benefits. While many submitted, one company stood out, having recognized a challenge, identified the solution, and implemented it for a big ROI.
Please join us in congratulating this year’s 2019 Connected World Awards winner.
