Big Data analytics and connectivity analytics are crucial tools for gaining value from an Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) deployment. But analyzing the application-specific sensor data and connectivity data to obtain useful insights remains a challenge for 72% of executives polled in our recent survey conducted in partnership with research firm Vanson Bourne. We had 300 enterprise-IT decision makers from the United States and the United Kingdom polled to examine the impact of IoT/M2M’s perceived impact on their business. You can see more results from that survey here.
Vast potential lies within connecting enterprise-scale devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications can increase operational efficiency by giving businesses visibility into the details of their operations in ways that could not have been measured before. While 71% of IT executives feel that IoT will help them better meet their business objectives in the next year, according to the Vanson Bourne 2015 survey conducted in partnership with Aeris, many also find IoT technology complicated and hard to manage.

The term “Internet of Things” was first coined in 1999, and it’s come to mean both trendy wearable gadgets and the promise of a safe, clean world of automated homes and smart cities. The reality lies somewhere in between, of course, and what’s needed is a grounding in the basics: what is the Internet of Things, how does it work, and what do businesses need to know in order to use IoT technology to build either those “smart” devices or that world of the future.
