Monitor Live+ The Power of Connected Assets: What Equipment Finance Leaders Need to Know

We are more connected than any other time in history. And that connectivity continues to mature exponentially. In fact, 90% of the world’s data was created over the past two years. We are now living in the early stage of what is known as Industry 4.0 or the fourth wave of the industry. And, unlike its predecessors, this fourth stage of the industrial revolution knows no boundaries. It’s evolving at an exponential rate rather than a linear pace. One example of Industry 4.0 that we can all relate to is what the market calls IoT – or the internet of things. There’s a growing network of internet-enabled and connected devices that we use every day: mobile devices, fitness trackers, security systems, refrigerators, farm machinery, automobiles, etc.

Topics covered:

  • The power of connected assets, IoT and machine learning to shift the future of equipment finance
  • What equipment finance lenders need to know to get ahead of the pace of change
