IoT transforms every company into a digital company

Acceleration in innovation opens a wide range of business opportunities facilitated by the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT comprises cyber-physical communication and big data storage of information gathered by exponential technologies. The speed of change also leads to disruptive business models that reshape the business environment. Many companies focus their IoT investments on technology-enabled cost-savings and efficiency-gains. However, the Internet of Things is also a transformative force that opens new possibilities not only for increased efficiency but for greater differentiation and innovation as new business models are enabled. To address the outlined opportunties, companies need to move to a proactive business-led innovation approach where employees are trained to eventually master the Internet of Things.
