The Internet of Things is critical for creating a digital business. “Leading the IoT – Gartner Insights on How to Lead in a Connected World” e-book, edited by Mark Hung, Gartner Research Vice President, provides a roadmap for effectively implementing IoT in your organization by addressing its four top challenges.
By 2020, Gartner estimates internet-connected things will outnumber humans 4-to-1, creating new dynamics for marketing, sales and customer service. These “things’ are not general-purpose devices, such as smartphones and PCs, but dedicated-function objects, such as vending machines, jet engines, connected cars and a myriad of other examples.
The IoT will have a great impact on the economy by transforming many enterprises into digital businesses and facilitating new business models, improving efficiency and increasing employee and customer engagement.
The book is intended to be a guide for CIOs and IT leaders who want to take a broader view of the IoT; it provides them with a foundation from which to start business conversations, develop their thinking and refine their approaches to accelerate time to value from IoT initiatives.
