Enterprise and industrial internet of things. Is your business ready? It can be very overwhelming when thinking about IoT for your business, especially because IoT is such a broad and all-encompassing term that encompasses various markets and technologies, and is even used for both consumer and business discussions.
Today, businesses need specificity, applicability and true business value discussions when speaking with technology vendors and partners. Even when my firm, Compass Intelligence, performs research in this area, we tend to be challenged daily with so much “fog” across vendors, carriers and even customers when discussing IoT. After attending multiple enterprise and technology conferences this year and speaking with businesses, I would like to sum up some key happenings, findings and wisdom that might help your business have better discussions as you plan for 2017.
