Deloitte Digital's Internet of Things services

Transform your business with value-focused IoT solutions

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are connecting digital and physical worlds in innovative ways—with breakthrough business results.

The business value of Internet of Things solutions

The physical world—people, assets, plants, supply networks—has historically been “unconnected” to the digital world and therefore largely invisible as a source of insights for business decisions. IoT solutions enable businesses to analyze data generated by sensors on physical objects in a world of intelligent, connected devices. This data can transform your business, revealing hidden patterns and insights that can help you make more informed decisions and take action more quickly.

IoT solutions can turn pain points into competitive advantages

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions enable breakthrough results by connecting the physical world to the digital world in ways that can turn your pain points into competitive advantages:

Where is my product? Track, monitor, and stay up-to-date on your products and inventory in real time
How do I connect with customers once my products are in their hands? Extend your service and support and deepen customer relationships thru smart products
When do I need to service my equipment? How long do I have before it fails? Am I overspending on maintenance? Gather and learn your equipment's vitals thru small, wireless, and multi-stats sensors to anticipate failures before they happen
How do I make sense of all the data I now gather? Turn real-time sensor data into actionable insights through big data tools, cognitive analytics, and machine learning
How do I access the knowledge of my experienced workforce when they go “offline” or leave? Apply mixed reality to transform your “super engineers” into a remote team of experts accessible from anywhere via video through phone, tablet, or specialty glasses

Deloitte Digital Internet of Things services

The Deloitte Digital IoT practice is a dynamic blend of technologists, strategists, and designers who use technology, data, and science to drive major business innovation. By mixing in creative vision and significant industry expertise, our IoT practice is helping our clients reimagine—and rewire—business-as-usual.

Our approach

Think big. Start small. Scale fast. With us, it all starts with exploring the art of the possible. Once we have options for ideas, we help clients sort through the noise by starting small with a project that offers demonstrated ROI and tangible benefits. Utilizing engineers, cloud-based platforms, and sensor kits we can quickly create mock-ups and prototypes to show clients what’s possible. If the solution seems like it’s working, we iterate on it, tweak it, enhance it, and work with others to scale the project.

Our objective is to use IoT as a medium for helping clients transform their businesses, realize tangible value, and deliver powerful outcomes. We have a network of IoT consultants all over the world focusing on the organizational implications of IoT in areas like security and privacy, technology, strategy, architecture, analytics, and implementation.We approach every IoT project with a value-focused mindset.

Some of our IoT solutions and accelerators:

Predictive Maintenance—Through sensors and machine learning, clients are able to monitor equipment in real-time throughout its lifecycle to anticipate issues before they cause downtime in production.

Turnkey IoT—A low-cost, low-risk solution for manufacturing that combines hardware, software, analytics, insights, and implementation services (developed by HPE, Deloitte, National Instruments, and PTC) into a single pre-configured ‘out of the box’ package that delivers results in weeks not months.

Retail 360—Clients can demo a custom solution that provides an omni-channel shopping experience to customers via a mobile app (EngageMe) and in-store inventory management capabilities to retailers via a web app (Store 360°). This helps customers get the experience they desire while retailers meet goals for increased sales and operational efficiency.

Patient 360—This IoT-based, care-coordination platform empowers patients, providers, payers, and the pharmaceutical industry. It can deliver better patient experiences by providing data and analysis to improve patient care as well as productivity in the healthcare marketplace.

Tech Map—To assist clients in evaluating the technology landscape for Smart Cities, we created IoT vendor maps that Deloitte practitioners use as an internal tool to rank vendors within technical categories and highlight the breadth and depth of their capabilities.
