IoT connects objects, turning them into “intelligent” assets that can communicate with people, applications and each other. It enables things like cars, buildings and machines to communicate about their status and environment. Other terms include machine-to-machine (M2M), Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0. Often, instead of the technology, people talk about specific applications, such as: smart cities, connected vehicles, smart grid, smart meters, smart homes, connected health and so much more.

84% of businesses, both large and small, stated their adoption and use of IoT had grown – with an impressive 95% of adopters and users achieving tangible benefits from their deployments.

Now in its fifth year, the Vodafone IoT Barometer 2017 has painted a fascinating picture of the rapidly maturing IoT market. With responses from 1,278 enterprises and public sector executives across 8 industries in 13 countries, it charts changing attitudes, business drivers and shows, almost without exception, that those investing more in IoT are seeing the biggest gains.

The Vodafone IoT Barometer 2017 is an essential guide to what’s happening in across all sectors, and where it’s headed.

What’s holding you back?

The IoT Barometer 2017 was based on data from an independent study conducted by Circle Research, which surveyed 1,278 enterprise and public sector executives from 13 countries. It explores:

  • How adoption has grown since 2013 and what the IoT landscape looks like today.
  • Why organisations are adopting IoT and the benefits they’re experiencing — from reduced costs to business transformation.
  • What adopters are doing to push ahead and why they see security as an enabler of IoT.
  • What’s happening in key industries.
  • What adopters expect from IoT in five years’ time.

The report includes exclusive commentary from Analysys Mason, a global consultancy and research firm specialising in telecoms, media and technology for more than 30 years. The report also includes excerpts from interviews with IoT adopters from different industries and regions.

Wherever you are on your IoT journey, the Barometer provides insights that can help you take the next step.
