This episode of Cliff Notes Podcast: Lead manufacturing, host and founder of Holdingbay Tristan Bailey talks to Gary Kent Ramsey for the Cliff Notes podcast. Gary is a business leader with 12 years experience of IoT and Digital Transformation.
He shared some of his visions of the near future in management and manufacturing. As business gets more complex and looking for an edge, he suggests management look to smaller startup mentality of learning form and adapting to change. Collect all your sources from customers feedback, machine reports and staff knowledge to build an evolving picture and trust in data driven.
Then we moved in to talk about IoT and where some times the systems can be an ecosystem in themselves, so start at the edge and look what is possible now, rather than tooling up monitoring that has the hope of emerging a solution.
The conversation takes Gary from cleaning his pool, to the disappearance of mobile phones, by way of Immersive Reality.
