Answer
Dear Prashant,

Yes, I think There's a hardware benefit. By adding data analysis as well as connectivity via the PC and network, management can Benefit from higher-performance/lower-costs . Moreover, it brings flexibility in connecting to, viewing, and querying PC-friendly networks using smartphones and tablets, so the possibilities become dramatic and wide-ranging. Data analysis at any time in any place gives management and operators a constant means of quality control, efficient production and flexibility.
