IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Internet of Things 2015 Predictions

Authors: Mario Morales, Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, Carrie MacGillivray, Vernon Turner, Bob Kraus, Jonathan Gaw

This IDC study presents the top 10 decision imperatives for the Internet of Things (IoT). Each decision imperative is shaped by a common set of key drivers that provides a planning tool for technology leaders and their line-of-business counterparts to use in their IT strategic planning efforts. While there is no shortage of hype around the IoT, IDC has been watching the market mature to the point where IT has to establish a new enterprise infrastructure to handle the business opportunities created by IoT devices.

"The Internet of Things will give IT managers a lot to think about," says Vernon Turner, SVP Enterprise Infrastructure, Consumer, Network, Telecom and Sustainability Research. "Enterprises will have to address every IT discipline to effectively balance the deluge of data from devices that are connected to the corporate network. In addition, IoT will drive tough organizational structure changes in companies to allow innovation to be transparent to everyone while creating new competitive business models and products."
