What is PPR?

Priority Payload Report is an independent newsletter covering topics related to the next wave of industrial transformation driven by IoT, robotics, AI, and big data.

There is so much happening in this space, but coverage of the trends and technology has been dominated by expensive, deep-dive analyst reports and vendor content. This industry needs an independent voice that can deliver relevant, exclusive, and interesting content directly to subscribers’ inboxes–which is what PPR does twice per month.

Ian Lamont founded PPR in 2017. An award-winning journalist and publisher, he saw an opportunity to cover the ever-expanding world of industrial automation, including IoT, AI, robotics, and related technologies.

Later, he founded two start-up ventures, including a mobile software company and i30 Media Corporation, which publishes IN 30 MINUTES guides.

Lamont’s writing and editorial work has garnered industry awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) and the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). IN 30 MINUTES technology guides have received awards from the Independent Book Publishers Association and Foreword INDIES.
