“Customers buy the applications and solutions that any technology brings and not the technology itself. In the case of enterprise customers, they want to see ROI rather than have multiple proof of concepts (POCs). POCs need to see the light of day and be scaled to production.

This is critical when thinking about plausible use cases,“ says Swathi Arunaa, senior market analyst, IDC Asia/Pacific.
