IDC Survey Spotlight: What can Telcos Learn from Companies' IoT Connectivity Choices and IoT Provider Preferences?
This IDC Survey Spotlight discusses the connectivity options used by Internet-of-Things (IoT) users and the companies they perceive as best suited to providing IoT solutions.
This document is based on the results of IDC's 2017 EMEA IoT Survey. The survey covered 1,360 organizations in 11 European geographies (France, Germany, Italy, the Nordics, Spain, the U.K., Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Russia) and a wide range of industries (finance, retail/wholesale, manufacturing, construction/resources, government, education, healthcare, transport, utilities, business services, software/IT services, and telecom/media). Respondents were primarily medium-sized companies: 83% were companies with 100-499 employees and 17% had 500+ employees.
