This IDC study presents the top 10 predictions for the Internet of Things (IoT). Each prediction is shaped by a common set of key drivers that provide a planning tool for technology leaders and their line-of-business counterparts to use in their IT strategic planning efforts.
"As we head into 2016, the IoT has gained mainstream awareness, yet organizations are still struggling with how to deal with the complexities of the vendor ecosystem in terms of developing and deploying connected products and services," says Carrie MacGillivray, program vice president, IoT and Mobile. "The landscape continues to evolve," adds Vernon Turner, SVP & research fellow (IoT). "We expect to see a few IoT leaders emerge that provide scalable, secure, and robust solutions that will garner share during 2016."
