The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is an important source of data for digital transformation. What is IIoT and how can we capture and use that data? Industry analyst and CXOTalk host, Michael Krigsman, speaks with Guido Jouret, the Chief Digital Officer of ABB about this topic.

Guido Jouret has been Chief Digital Officer of ABB since October 2016. Mr. Jouret served as Chief Technical Officer at Nokia Technologies since April 2015 until October 2016.

Prior to that, he was Chief Technology Officer and General Manager of Cisco’s Emerging Technologies Group, a unit responsible for incubating new businesses. Under his leadership, the team created nine new start-ups, including those, which became Cisco’s TelePresence and Internet of Things groups. He has lived in 12 countries including France, Singapore and the United States. Additionally, he worked for Cisco as IT Director for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and in the Internet Business Solutions Group.

Jouret left Cisco in 2014 to join Envision Energy, where he led the software products business, including a platform for the emerging energy internet.
