IoT: A Look Back at 2015, a Look Forward into 2016 and Beyond

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnected set of intelligent devices and objects designed specifically to enable the virtualization of the physical world. The devices can create new value, services and perspectives from the sharing and analysis of their observations of the world around them. Nearly every type of business that exists today can employ IoT systems to create cost savings and efficiencies or support new business models.

In this webinar, we look into how the Internet of Things market is evolving, with major developments in 2015 and our predictions for 2016. We review the considerable M&A activity in the sector, as well as initial findings of enterprise IoT adoption from 451 Research's Voice of the Enterprise. The webinar also previews the key focus areas of 451 Research's Internet of Things research channel for 2016.

451 Research Takes on the Internet of Things

451 Research Takes on the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) has gained a tremendous amount of momentum over the past few years, with a definition that varies greatly based on the source. As defined by 451 Research, IoT is the interconnected set of intelligent devices, objects and wearables designed specifically to enable the virtualization of the physical world. These devices create new value, services and perspectives through sharing and deep analysis of machine to machine (M2M) data. In support of our in-depth coverage of IoT, 451 Research is launching its latest Market Map™, which offers a comprehensive view of the multitude of vendors within the IoT ecosystem.

“The Internet of Things has become arguably the most hyped concept in the history of IT,” said Brian Partridge, Vice President of Mobility, 451 Research. “While the buzz is understandable, the reality is that we stand at the very early days of a long journey. Today, most companies aren’t yet ready for the massive transformation to the business process that IoT implies. Fully embracing the Internet of Things is a fundamental shift that brings significant risk that must be managed, and it requires data skills that are in short supply.”
