End-user perspectives on key trends that are driving the Internet of Things

From connected vineyards and livestock to connected factories and delivery trucks, it’s hard to ignore a near-constant buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT). Much of the hype is focused on consumer applications like fitness trackers and wearables. And yet, industry stakeholders are increasingly recognizing that enterprise-led deployments – with specific business objectives – may drive a bulk of the IoT market’s value.

To better understand how enterprises around the world are leveraging the Internet of Things, Current Analysis conducted a survey of more than 1,000 enterprises across all major regions, verticals and company sizes. Connecting with enterprises who were planning IoT or already engaged in IoT deployments – as well as those who had evaluated IoT, but opted-out of deployment – the survey focused on a number of key areas.

- Use Cases. Which use cases are driving IoT deployments? Which ones aren’t?

- Business Drivers and Inhibitors. What business objectives are enterprises looking to achieve? What’s holding back their deployment plans?

- Deployment Scope. How broad – geographic reach, number of devices – are today’s deployments?

- Investment Plans. What are enterprise IoT expectations in terms of Return on Investment (RoI) and where are they investing to achieve them? What components of the IoT ecosystem are enterprises investing in?

- Project Management. Within the enterprise, who is taking charge of IoT projects? Beyond the enterprise, which vendors are expected to be in the best positon to support IoT deployments?

- Data Management. How is IoT data being handled? How often - and where - is data analysis taking place?

Join us as Current Analysis discusses the findings of our enterprise IoT survey and shares insights gleaned from the survey data. Expectations around IoT's value in the enterprise are running high. Whether you are an enterprise deploying IoT or a supplier into the IoT ecosystem, understanding how enterprises are leveraging IoT and planning IoT deployments is key to executing on its promise.
