The Internet of Things: Connected Everything

Welcome to the Deloitte IoT Blog

From Kaja Andritzke


Who we are

We as the IoT practice of Deloitte Germany are delighted to introduce our new blog today.As part of the global IoT initiative at Deloitte, the German practice drives business-value focused IoT solutions from the very first idea to the global operation. We offer detailed insights into the possibilities and sustainable value of IoT solutions and develop custom strategies across industries.

On this blog, we share learnings from our IoT projects and introduce best practices as well as our Point of Views. We offer additional findings, statistics and analyses, publish interviews with IoT experts and keep you up to date about major IoT developments.

Initially established in summer 2016, we have since grown into a team of 40+ practitioners led by Dr. Gunther Wagner and Andreas Staffen. To name just a few, let us introduce ourselves as some of the contributors to this blog.

What we do

Nowadays, billions of interconnected sensors and devices are enabled and qualified to exchange data in real-time. Together, they form the Internet of Things, enabling critical insights, greater efficiency, and new business models in dozens of industries, creating trillions of dollars of value globally.

We focus on the corporate application of IoT solutions in specific organizations rather than single end-user devices, which is reflected in how we approach IoT. Our work spans from the identification of suitable strategic courses of action, over respective technology and organizational transformation to a steady optimization of operation and delivery principles. More details regarding our IoT service offerings are following in a separate blog post.
