Reasons Not To Delay In Investing in IoT

Ready or not, the Internet of Things is here to stay and it’s taking over the business world. More companies are investing in IoT. According to Erik Brenneis, who is the director of Vodafone’s Internet of Things business: “I think IoT is pretty much mainstream now. It’s not that we have all the devices on the street yet, but almost all the customers I talk to say, ‘Look, we need to somehow connect our product.’”

Haven’t already invested in IoT?  Here are a few reasons why shouldn’t delay.

It’s The Future

IoT is undoubtedly the future. In 2015, there were over 15.4 billion connected devices, and IHS forecasts that this number will grow to 30.7 billion in 2020, and 75.4 billion in 2025. Additionally, IDC predicts by 2020, global IoT spending will reach $1.29 trillion. With the industry showing so much room for growth, businesses need to start thinking about investing in the Internet of Things now, as it is only a matter of time before it becomes a true global phenomenon. So, if you want to get an early start and keep up with the competition, you should take a close look at your business models to see how IoT will fit in, deliver better services to your customer, improve processes, and expand the scope of doing business.
