This IDC Survey compares IDC's latest primary research on enterprise perceptions of and plans for the Internet of Things (IoT) in Canada and the world. In the third and fourth quarters of 2017, IDC surveyed 3,665 respondents across 27 countries worldwide asking enterprise IT and business decision makers about their IoT deployments. 154 of the respondents were from medium-sized, large, and very large Canadian organizations.
The survey content in this document examines the following aspects of organizations with IoT deployments: success and impact, motivations and challenges, and funding and coordination. It offers a view of Canadian respondents versus their global peers as well as segmentation by company size and job function. IoT vendors should find it useful for go-to-market planning and campaigns, while end-user organizations may use it for benchmarking.
