NEW DELHI, October 12, 2017 – The disruptive impact of digital technologies and the transformation they bring is being felt across organizations and industries worldwide, leading to the emergence of the “Digital Economy.” Key amongst this is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is poised to transform the way businesses generate and consume data while providing insights previously unavailable due to various constraints.
IDC’s report, titled ‘Technology spotlight’, in partnership with Aeris, highlights the key factors business leaders should consider when selecting an IoT solution. The IoT market continues to see strong growth and according to the report, the worldwide IoT market spend will grow from $625.2 billion in 2015 to $1.29 trillion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6 percent. The installed base of IoT endpoints will grow from 12.1 billion at the end of 2015 to more than 30 billion by 2020.
A key factor driving adoption of IoT is the increasing realization of the value that IoT brings along with improving customer experience. Most businesses today are either at a starting point in their IoT journey or are in some stage of considering an IoT deployment.
“When you are talking about enhancing the customer lifetime value, smoothening customer onboarding or even making it easier for businesses to deliver sophisticated customer experiences, IoT technologies lead the way. Today, IoT has gone way beyond tagging and tracking and has entered diverse domains and is enabling a range of business benefits. Aeris is at the forefront of driving IoT adoption through a unique blend of offerings that help unlock the true enterprise value of IoT”, said Dr. Rishi Bhatnagar, President of Aeris in India.
“As CIOs, IT, and business leaders move toward transforming their enterprises and expanding their digital footprint, the role of IoT will be a lynchpin for causing disruption and driving transformation. There is broad consensus across industries and roles on IoT playing a major role in delivering better efficiencies, productivity and customer experience”, said Arjun Vishwanathan, Associate Director for Emerging Technologies, IDC India.
