Navigating the connected world

According to industry analysts, there's vast potential economic value in IoT projects. However, most organizations are struggling to get their projects off the ground. Why? It comes down to building a solid business case for IoT and then lining up the resources to execute on it.

Some of the common challenges include:

  • Challenging to deploy
  • Complex ecosystem of providers
  • Difficult integration among hardware, software and services
