Time to break the rules


Jeremy Cowan, Editor
The editor of M2M Now, Jeremy Cowan

Don’t fix what ain’t broke, that’s the rule. But sometimes there are better motivations than repair. We have been overwhelmed by the support you have shown for M2M Now magazine, in print and online at iot-now.com. You have catapulted us from zero to more than 25,000 readers worldwide in months, and we want to say thank you.

So why, I hear you ask, are we radically overhauling the title’s contents barely three years after we launched? Simple; because we are bringing you more and better coverage of the market than we (or anyone else, come to that) have offered before. We work hard to bring you the latest news, views and interviews in machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT). And rest assured, that won’t change.

Now, however, you will find a new backbone running through the magazine as we’ve commissioned a leading analyst firm – this month it’s Machina Research – to write an Insight Report for M2M Now analysing the market as a whole. At our invitation, they have prepared a special report covering 5 growth sectors: automotive M2M, fleet management & asset tracking, smart utilities, mobile health, and smart cities. Our experience has shown these to be among the areas of greatest reader interest. They also present some of the biggest business opportunities. The report in the first of these new-look issues covers all five sectors, giving you a taste of the detailed Insight Reports to come. In future, M2M Now will focus on one sector in each issue, bringing you analysis of business opportunities, challenges and key vendors, that will complement our unrivalled news coverage and exclusive access to C-Level executives.

For now though, just sit back and see for yourself if the best M2M coverage in the world just got even better (and bigger too).
