Enterprise communications and collaboration using wireless devices and services is transforming the workforce and their management. Simultaneously, the siloed M2M market has blossomed into a rich, diverse and complex Internet of Things ecosystem. Smart sensors, ubiquitous connectivity and smart analytics offer the potential to completely disrupt production economics across a wide range of industries.
The next wave of IT Technologies, collectively known as IoT, will dramatically impact the control and delivery of services and provide a strategic opportunity to shift the capital/labor mix. The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a critical inflection point which will enable companies to transform themselves into “as-a-Service” solutions companies.
While much of the media attention has been on connected car, connected wearables and smart homes an even larger opportunity exists across smart cities, smart factories, the industrial internet, smart healthcare and smart grid solutions. The revolution of IoT will not just be about modems or type of connectivity but more about enabling the next level of intelligent decision making with predictive analytics tailored to the custom requirements of specific vertical markets alongside a rich suite of horizontal decision support solutions. To achieve even a fraction of the forecast economic benefits or provide a compelling investment case, IoT must focus on key business questions.
