Top Tier Specialists in IoT Connected Data-Driven

Business for the Past Nine Years.

In 2018, 67% of organizations plan Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. Just 1.5% of executives have a clear vision of what IoT will do for them.​ 70% of IoT initiatives fail or never move past Proof-of-Concept projects.​​

The journey to smart connected data-driven business value creation is a complex one. Difficult to get right, but important to do. Done right, connected data-driven business and product transformation offers significant opportunities for renewal, growth, and enterprise value creation. Done wrong, business and product transformation can place companies into Sisyphus-like proof-of-concept and business model redesign and revision cycles, or can add their products to the same junk pile of history that one finds Google Glass. Get it right, your company and your future depends on it.
