If I were to define the era we’re living through, I’d rather put it in the category of the industrial Internet.Some might say it has nothing to do with the industrial Internet, because in essence, we’re living through an era that doesn’t have much to do with the Internet.This conclusion is largely due to the fact that we regard the industrial Internet as the result of an existence associated with the Internet.In fact, the industrial Internet itself does not have much to do with the Internet.If we must look for links between the industrial Internet and the Internet, those Internet players are also industrial Internet players, is undoubtedly an important aspect.However, we can’t simply see the industrial Internet as an Internet-like existence just because they are all embracing it as a new outlet.On the contrary, the industrial Internet, far from being exclusive to the Internet, is a completely new existence that has nothing to do with the Internet.If there is a new definition of the industrial Internet, I would like to define the industrial Internet as the re-start of the Internet.
In many cases, when we look at the industrial Internet, we often see it as the antithesis of the consumer Internet era.The reason why there is such a view, to a large extent and its target and object has a great connection.Because in the era of industrial Internet, players’ targets and objects are more B-end users, while in the era of consumer Internet, players’ targets and objects are more C-end users.One of the most important reasons why we see so many Internet players jumping into the industrial Internet wave is that they try to solve the pain points and problems that have not been solved in the consumer Internet era through industrial Internet methods and methods.Rather, they are using the industrial Internet era to do what they did not do in the consumer Internet era.Therefore, if it is necessary to make a summary of the industrial Internet, I prefer to regard the industrial Internet as a remedy and correction for the Internet.After such a stage of development, the Internet can truly transform our production and life more thoroughly and comprehensively, rather than just focusing on the superficial and shallow aspects of the transformation.
In addition, the compensations and corrections of the Internet reflected by the industrial Internet are also reflected in its self-innovation and evolution of the Internet.As we all know, for the Internet, its biggest function and effect is just to de-intermediate.However, it just lacks the transformation of the industrial end, and finally makes itself just an independent existence outside the industry.When the industrial Internet era comes, it is more seeking a way and method to combine with the industry, it is more seeking a way and method to transform the industry.Rather, it is accomplishing what the Internet age cannot.Only after such a stage of development, the development of the Internet industry can be truly thorough and perfect.From this point of view, industrial Internet is also a remedy and correction for the Internet.
The Internet is not just a matchmaking and intermediary role, it should have more functions and significance.Only in this way can its development be truly comprehensive and perfect.The derivation and emergence of the industrial Internet is based on the evolution of the Internet.This is why we see so many Internet players into the wave of the industrial Internet, the reason will continue to appear in the industrial Internet industry in the key.If it is necessary to summarize the industrial Internet, I prefer to regard it as a derivation and evolution of the Internet.First of all, from the underlying technology of the industrial Internet.In the era of industrial Internet, we have seen the emergence of many new technologies, represented by artificial intelligence, blockchain and the metacom.It can be said that these new technologies are the underlying driving force of the industrial Internet.So do these new technologies just appear out of nowhere?Obviously not.If we must find the source and origin of these new technologies, Internet technology is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects.In my opinion, Internet technology plays the role of incubator and parent of new technologies.It’s because of the evolution of Internet technology, it’s because of the incubation of Internet technology that these new technologies emerge and can really develop.
Secondly, from the industrial Internet business model.We have always regarded S2B model as the classic model in the era of industrial Internet.If we must find the source and originator of such a business model as S2B, the Internet type B2B model is undoubtedly worth our attention and thinking about the important aspects.It can be said that it is with the development and evolution of B2B model, it is with the continuous maturity and improvement of B2B model, S2B model will appear.Again, from the bottom logic of the industrial Internet.As we all know, in the era of consumer Internet, the relationship between Internet players and the industry is actually divided, opposite and difficult to integrate.One of the most direct results of such a relationship is that the Internet industry is thriving at the expense of the physical industry.Just to develop the relationship between the industry and the Internet is obviously unable to achieve long-term development.It is in this context that we see the emergence of the industrial Internet.Different from the disconnection and opposition between industries and the Internet in the Internet era, the relationship between industries and the Internet in the industrial Internet era is more like a deeply integrated, collaborative, symbiotic relationship.From this perspective, the industrial Internet is also a derivation and evolution of the Internet.
If the Internet only stays on the concept of the consumer Internet era, if the Internet only stays on the role and definition of the consumer Internet era, then its development will not be sustainable in any way.If we want to make a new breakthrough in the Internet, if we want to make the Internet find a new outlet and blue ocean, the first thing we need to do is to carry out a new reshaping and reconstruction on it.The advent and emergence of the industrial Internet era is just a reshaping and reconstruction of the Internet.After the reshaping and reconstruction of the industrial Internet era, the Internet will no longer be just a platform and center role, it is more of a deep integration with the industry, and even become a member of the industry.At this point, it’s hard to define a virtual economy or a platform economy.Because after such a stage of development, the Internet also has industries, entities, is also a combination of virtual and real existence.After the reshaping and reconstruction of the industrial Internet era, the Internet will no longer be a matchmaking and intermediary role, it is more of a supplier, it is more of a new industry type, and it has constructed a brand new relationship with consumers.Under such a new relationship, the role of matchmaking and intermediary undertaken by the traditional Internet will no longer exist, instead, it will be a new direct supply relationship from industry to consumers.In such a process, the Internet plays a more important role in reshaping and reengineering the industry, so that the industry no longer needs matchmaking and intermediary, but anticipates the needs of consumers in advance, so that they can better save costs and improve efficiency.
After the reshaping and reconstruction of the industrial Internet era, the Internet will no longer be a virtual-dominated existence, but more a combination of virtual-real role.This, in fact, we can already from the Internet players of the layout.One of the most important reasons why these Internet players invest in physical retailers, supply chains and factories is that in the era of industrial Internet, the Internet will no longer be a virtual-dominated existence, but a combination of virtual-real existence. To be more precise, in the era of industrial Internet,Internet players will metamorphose into outposts and experimental fields that combine virtual and real.Through the above analysis, we can clearly see that when the industrial Internet era comes, it will bring more reshaping and reconstruction of the Internet.After such a period of development and evolution, the Internet will no longer be what we know before, but will metamorphose into a completely new existence.
Simply categorize the industrial Internet into the category of the Internet, or even arbitrarily regard the industrial Internet as a pronoun of the Internet, or even use the way of consumer Internet to implement and practice the industrial Internet, it is impossible to truly grasp the connotation and significance of the industrial Internet.The industrial Internet, in fact, has very little to do with the Internet.It is more of a farewell to the Internet than a departure.After experiencing such a stage of development and evolution, the industrial Internet will completely bid farewell to what we have known before and truly enter a new stage of development.
