As the Internet of Things (IoT) surpasses buzzworthy and becomes more of a reality, it’s crucial to understand how this new shift in thinking and operating transforms the technology world. Thankfully, Zebra Technology’s investment and continued focus on Enterprise Asset Intelligence (EAI) provides higher asset visibility and opportunities to act on captured data.

As the physical amount of captured data rises with new technology, the ability to organize, access, and make sense of it becomes a struggle. With EAI we can now act on this data with more clarity and speed than ever before by connecting our assets’ performance to functioning analytics. Turning the physical results of assets into Big Data positions Zebra partners with a competitive advantage and allows you to work smarter, not harder.

The three components that comprise EAI include sensing (data), analytics, and acting on that data. Being able to use Bluetooth and RFID in NFL and NCAA shoulder pads, for example, provides coaches and players with real-time data and information that can make the difference between a win and loss. Sending that information to the cloud yields shareable stats in real-time. Furthermore, players also benefit from an accurate and quick report of their performance that goes beyond the naked eye.

The same concept can be applied to healthcare. Whether it’s a newborn baby, a blood specimen, or a hospital bed, Zebra’s sensors enable asset intelligence as doctors remotely check on patients or quickly locate a piece of equipment in an emergency situation. The marriage of cloud and mobility becomes imperative for medical providers who don’t have to keep staff on hand just to wait for results to become available.

As technology surrounds our daily life, there’s no point in operating in a silo. Now, more than ever, businesses need to connect the dots between data and assets, and accurately capture everything as it works together. Zebra’s EAI capabilities can deliver these possibilities through a variety of solutions that provide the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right place. Barcode printing, wireless LAN, RFID, and mobile devices collaborate to report mission-critical information and confident results. Using smart data to analyze your company’s digital nervous system provides a faster and smarter way to unlock your assets’ full potential.
