You have ideas, we have people & tools and together we can create better Things!

Adopting IoT solutions is no exception to the cautious approach that many corporations follow when planning to go digital. There are still many companies that are opening up to the Internet of Things for the first time.

Here are some issues that cannot be overseen in this transformational leap. 

  1. Plan. You need to have solid plan designed prior to the deployment.
    • A typical mistake is to add a few IoT devices as a pilot project and slowly grow the IoT base following no predefined plans. This frequent mistake is often committed because organizations are wary of making initial large investments, are unsure of the benefits before deploying the solution and under plan in terms of digital strategy. In the long term this is not cost effective, it exposes the organization to security vulnerabilities due to poorly managed devices that are often underused. 
       
  2. Beware bargains. High-quality is high quality and low-priced is low-priced.
    • To turn IoT solutions into viable for businesses, they must meet business requirements, cover the technological purposes they were deployed for, and also be cost effective. A perennial problem for the entire IoT industry are the – unfortunately – great amount of poorly designed devices with severe security flaws. Normally their manufacturers sacrificed secure designs in favour of cost. End users must seek trustworthy partners and products for their digital transition because this stage of digital transformation cannot come at any price.
       
  3. Security.  Our organization’s footprint is bound to extend as we go digital.
    • Protection and prevention measures against cyber-attacks must also grow as our connected footprint does. New threats such as ransom-ware are a new battlefield for security experts. The best path for newcomers is to stick to a digitization strategy that takes into account secure business environments and seek the assistance of digital security expert partners.
       
  4. Investing in proprietary systems could become an expensive choice.
    • Even though this is one of the hottest debate topic around the Internet of Things, the path towards open environments seems an unstoppable trend if we really expect to connect everything everywhere and not create an endless collection of incompatible small isolated proprietary ecosystems.
       
  5. Data, data, and more data. How can we define the IoT in a few words? It is a set of connected digital devices with the capacity to collect, analyse and process data. The volume of information we use in the IoT is simply overwhelming. Adopting IoT technology is also opening our business processes to streams of data and business intelligence in order to take an evolutionary leap that will place us ahead of my competition.
     
  6. It is not too late but careful with being left behind.  Someday it will definitely be too late, but for the moment we can assure that organizations can still embrace digital transformation. The first stepping stone should be to select a solid IoT partner and take small (but firm) strides towards a digital future.

The future does not wait, neither does the market
