Just from the perspective of the Internet to look at the industrial Internet will only bring the industrial Internet into the development of the Internet cycle. This is the key reason why we see so many industrial Internet players jumping in and never breaking through. Even those head of the Internet platform, can not be excluded.
Fortunately, the maturity of new technologies, complete business models, especially the implementation and realization of digitalization, provide soil for the implementation of industrial Internet. More and more players begin to abandon the Internet-style approach to industrial Internet, to look at and practice industrial Internet from the perspective of industrial Internet, is becoming a trend and trend. What is the Industrial Internet perspective? In my opinion, the most critical point is digitization. When such a state of development continues, the real sense of the industrial Internet era will come.
Standing in the perspective of industrial Internet – especially the digital perspective – to examine it, and find a suitable development path, is the right way and method. Blindly regard the industrial Internet as a concept, or regard it as a way and means to maintain the traditional Internet model, will only lead the development of the industrial Internet into a dead end.
In many cases, the author believes that the uniqueness of the industrial Internet lies in digitization. Only by recognizing the important functions and roles of digitalization in the era of industrial Internet and finding the ways and methods of digitalization to drive industrial Internet, can the development of industrial Internet be truly taken away from the vicious circle of traditional Internet and truly enter a new development cycle belonging to industrial Internet.
Digitization, the base of the construction industry Internet
All the time, people are emphasizing the difference between industrial Internet and traditional Internet, and trying to find ways and methods to distinguish industrial Internet from traditional Internet. However, the industrial Internet has fallen into the vicious circle of the development of the traditional Internet again and again. Through in-depth analysis of the reasons, it is not difficult to find that the key reason why the industrial Internet has fallen into the vicious circle of the traditional Internet again and again lies in the mere tinkering with the word game on the base of the traditional Internet without really building a strong base of the industrial Internet.
As digital technology matures, especially as it replaces Internet technology as the new infrastructure, what we’re seeing is that the industrial Internet is starting to see a lot of innovative changes. No matter in the way and method of industrial transformation, or in the business model, new elements are constantly filling the industrial Internet, and constantly let the industrial Internet more and more with its characteristics.
Clearly, digitization is building the base of the industrial Internet.
When digital technologies begin to provide more and more ways to transform traditional industries, and when digitalization begins to make fundamental changes in the industry itself, a new base built by digitalization is taking shape. Different from the traditional Internet development mode dominated by large Internet platforms, this new base constructed by digitization is dominated by industry.
Different from the traditional Internet era, which only places industries on the platform, the industrial base constructed in a digital way is represented by a variety of new industries and represented by the return of industries. The way and method of the connection between these new industries and consumers is not only realized by the Internet mode, but by the digital mode. To be more precise, traditional industries need the help of large platforms to connect with consumers, while new industries, even without the help of large Internet platforms, can also connect with consumers.
It can be seen that when the new industry becomes the mainstream, the industrial Internet can be returned to its essence and core. This is what the industrial Internet really looks like. Just imagine, if there is no digitalization for the in-depth transformation of the industry, there will be no new industry to become the leading role, industrial Internet is bound to be a myth. Only by recognizing this important role of digitalization, and constantly looking for ways and methods to combine it with traditional industries, and then continuously building the base of industrial Internet, can industrial Internet completely get rid of its hindrance and dependence on the Internet and truly enter a new stage of development of its own.
Digital, to provide industrial Internet implementation scheme
For a long time, people have been emphasizing the difference between industrial Internet and consumer Internet, however, in the realization of industrial Internet, but again and again into the same river of consumer Internet. Only when the industrial Internet finds its own distinctive features can it truly achieve itself and get rid of its dependence on the consumer Internet.
Digitisation also allows players of the industrial Internet to find new implementations beyond the consumer Internet. With this as the beginning, the development of the industrial Internet has really stepped into a new development cycle.
Unlike the consumer Internet, which is realized only through the deintermediation of Internet technology, the implementation scheme of the industrial Internet is built on a brand new way. This uniqueness is the key reason that determines the difference between industrial Internet and consumer Internet.
The author believes that the realization of industrial Internet lies in the breaking of different forms of industrial barriers and the construction of a new production relations.
How to break the barriers of industrial form?
In the final analysis, it is necessary to allow the free flow of elements of different industrial forms. With the help of digital means, the virtual economy form and the real economy form which seem to be unable to be integrated have a possibility of flow. Starting from this, the upstream and downstream of the industry can be connected quickly and efficiently even without the help of traditional Internet-based platforms.
To be clear, this does not represent the death of the Internet-based platform, but rather the beginning of a new form of Internet-based platform.
When digitization breaks the barriers of different industrial forms, new production relations will also take place a brand new evolution. Under such a brand new relationship of production, the boundary between supplier and demander begins to blur, and the supplier in the traditional sense also becomes the demander. The demander in the traditional sense has also become the supplier. The integration of supply and demand will reshape a brand new relationship of production, under which industrial Internet can be truly realized.
Obviously, without digitization, industrial Internet cannot be realized by means of traditional Internet. Because the traditional Internet can not bring about the integration of different industrial forms, and the lack of integration of different industrial forms, the development of the industry is still operating under the traditional mechanism, when the industry is operating under the traditional mechanism, the existence of new production relations is no longer necessary. Then, the industrial Internet is no longer necessary. Therefore, to realize the industrial Internet, digital is necessary. In other words, digitization also provides the implementation scheme of industrial Internet.
Digitization releases huge dividends of industrial Internet
The industrial Internet is a more imaginative existence than the consumer Internet, and one of the most important reasons is that the industrial Internet itself will release huge development dividends. If we look for the “catalyst” of industrial Internet to release dividends, digitalization is undoubtedly the one that cannot be ignored. Follow the road of digitization, looking for ways and methods to realize the industrial Internet, will open a new dividend of development one after another.
Digitalization, the reason why it can take on such a huge function and role, one of the most important willingness lies in its depth and thorough industrial transformation.
From the perspective of breadth, digitalization can not only change traditional industries, but also the Internet industry itself will be transformed by digitalization. What we are seeing now is a series of Internet gamers, incarnated as digital gamers, which is a direct manifestation of this phenomenon. It can be said that the transformation of industry by digitalization breaks through the limitations of entity and virtual, traditional and modern, and truly realizes an all-round and multi-angle evolution.
From the perspective of depth, digitalization is not just like the traditional Internet model, which only changes the way and method of connecting commodities with consumers, but really goes deep into the production link of products, and even the internal elements and processes of the production link will undergo a complete change. Therefore, the industrial Internet only “go to the water is poor”, is “sit and watch the clouds rise”, the more in-depth, the more valuable, the more in-depth, the more dividends.
On the whole, on the one hand, digital transformation covers the breadth and depth, so that we see a lot of difficulties and challenges; On the other hand, such a transformation that covers the breadth and depth of digitization makes us see more new dividends of development. On the whole, the author believes that digitization brings such a development model covering both breadth and width, in fact, contains huge development dividends, in fact, is bearing huge development opportunities.
In addition, different from the unsustainable and unbalanced dividend of the traditional Internet, the development dividend of the industrial Internet released by digitalization is an all-round, sustainable and evolutionable new dividend. Just because of this, digitalization can truly take on the responsibility of the industrial Internet and truly become the internal driving force and catalyst of the industrial Internet.
Digitization is the source of the uniqueness of the industrial Internet.
Only by recognizing the important functions and roles played by digitalization in the era of industrial Internet, and finding the correct ways and methods to realize industrial Internet by means of digitalization, can the development of industrial Internet really get rid of the stumbling block of consumer Internet and truly enter a new era of development belonging to industrial Internet.
It needs to be clear that, if only in the name of digitization, the actual practice of the Internet, but did not find the correct way and method derived from the digitalization to realize the industrial Internet, then the so-called industrial Internet, still an Internet-dominated existence, still does not have any new ideas.
