  EMA Analyst's Corner

by Lyndsay Wise, EMAInternet of Things (IoT) and Leveraging Devices for Increased Business Value

by Lyndsay Wise, Research Director, Business Intelligence

Organizations are realizing great business value with their data, and that value is expanding. With greater business intelligence maturity comes additional support for big data and device connectivity as companies expand their analytics projects and leverage diverse data sets to increase their overall insight. More organizations (65% of respondents from the new EMA IoT study) feel that data-driven strategies are important to them. The implication of data-driven strategies rising in importance is that decision makers within organizations understand the relationship between information insight and better, more efficient business outcomes. The more insights gleaned from analytics that follow action, the more likely companies are to meet their business goals.

In the last year or so, the topic of Internet of Things (IoT) received a lot of attention. Both the concept of the topic and scope of what should be included in IoT changed dramatically in that time. The first commercialization of IoT were wearables such as GoogleGlass. Shortly thereafter came the next wave, with devices such as smart watches. The first security concerns were focused on personal safety due to user distractions, similar to those voiced when smartphones became popular, and then came the invasion of privacy concerns. However, shortly after the first hackers got hold of them and identified attacks to gather data from them. At that point, the view on IoT expanded to recognize that the concept of IoT was actually much broader and had more significant impacts than privacy.
