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.
