Forrester Report: Internet Of Things Heat Maps For Operational Excellence In 2021

Deploy IoT Use Cases That Bring Value To Your Company Operations A fragmented array of internet-of-things (IoT) solutions enhance enterprise operational efficiency across vertical markets. IoT use cases focus on generic functions across most enterprises but are also highly specialized for verticals. As we emerge from the pandemic in 2021, use cases addressing supply chain management and environmental monitoring will have renewed relevance. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) executives must collaborate with their business partners to identify IoT use case priorities and deployment momentum across the organization.

ABI Research Report – Tomorrow’s Smart Connected Products Require Smarter Connectivity Services Today

At the end of 2020, 6.6 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will be connected and active worldwide; 840 million of them will use cellular networks, which is just under 8% of the total. At the end of 2014, there were 180 million cellular IoT devices active worldwide, and that number increased by over 4.5X in the 6 intervening years. In another 6 years’ time, we will witness a further near-7X growth in cellular IoT devices, bringing the global total to 5.7 billion. More smart devices are being deployed, and more types of device are becoming smart. All IoT applications are variations of either asset tracking (i.e., “where is something?”) or condition-based monitoring (i.e., “how is something?”), in combination with use case-specific characteristics that distinguish them as markets in their own right. Applications can be thematically grouped by similarity and significance into: metering, tracking/location, smart home, monitoring, smart cities, and a long-tail selection of “others.” Monitoring has consistently accounted for between a third and a quarter of all cellular IoT connections, strongly driven by automotive applications that include: Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) telematics, aftermarket telematics, and fleet management. Yet, this stalwart will account for less than 10% by 2026. Download Read more about ABI Research Report – Tomorrow’s Smart Connected Products Require Smarter Connectivity Services Today[…]
