This IDC Market Perspective provides an overview of the current maturity level of IoT across European industries. It also analyzes the leading IoT use cases for European organizations, taking a deep dive on some of them across different evolutionary stages and identifying European real-life examples.
"It is now time for European IoT adopters to show if IoT will remain a nice-to-have geeky experiment that adds a smart glaze to usual business or if they are ready to scale up their IoT initiatives, steering toward a companywide IoT-driven digital foundational disruption," said Andrea Siviero, IDC European Internet of Things Practice Lead. "In this context, the IoT adopter paradigm is tipping over from a discrete technology focus to a use-case and business-outcome 'obsession', where, from advanced use case objectives, end users work back across easier intermediate horizons to pinpoint technology needs."
