Using Drones for Delivery: What IT Buyers Need to Know

By: William StofegaProgram Director, Mobile Device Technology and Trends

Abstract

This IDC Perspective summarizes the key elements necessary for launching a drone delivery service. Specifically, this document outlines some of the problems facing delivery companies and outlines how drones can decrease the risk when delivering to consumers.

"The use of drones for deliveries in both commercial and consumer markets is already happening. However, we believe that it will take at least 5-10 years before the deployment of delivery drones becomes commonplace. Still, we believe those looking to deploy drones in the future should begin their pilot programs within the next 2 years," says William Stofega, program director for IDC's Drone and Mobile Phone research programs.
