IoT solutions becoming a top concern for US enterprise decision-makers, says Machina Research

Enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are one of the hot button topics of the technology space for 2016. To better understand the dynamics involved with the adoption and deployment of IoT solutions among US enterprises, Machina Research was commissioned by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), InterDigital and Telit to develop a survey of enterprise decision makers focused on core IoT elements.

Based on the findings of the survey Machina Research has compiled a White Paper providing an analytical assessment of top trends in IoT as detailed by US company executives and addresses their top project objectives, the key role of technology standards, deployment strategies, as well as future deployment and spending expectations.

Machina Research’s survey clearly indicates that the Internet of Things solutions have reached critical mass, fast becoming a top concern for U.S. enterprise decision makers. Executives who participated in this study strongly indicated that IoT adoption has already gained significant traction among US enterprises in the context of both strategic planning and execution, with 48% of respondents stating that their companies are actively using IoT technologies in their business, and an additional 43% are looking to deploy IoT solutions in the next 24 months.

At this pace, IoT will become a mainstream enterprise element by the beginning of 2019. While many current IoT deployments are still limited in scope, US companies are already gearing up for the integration of IoT solutions within their broader array of enterprise systems.

Successful IoT adoption however, at both the industry and enterprise level, requires standards. Facing a dizzying array of technology, integration and design choices for IoT projects, enterprises emphatically underscored the key role of standards in the evolution of successful IoT implementations.
