When everything is connected

Smart devices have accelerated the development of a new model of technology intelligence: the Internet of Things (IoT). While this presents exciting opportunities, it also creates new challenges for organizations. We can help ensure your business is ready for IoT today and as it grows in prevalence.
 

Many organizations are considering IoT as part of their IT strategy. There are already billions of IoT connected devices, and projections only go up from here. It’s possible to enable almost anything with IoT capabilities. The question should be: What data do you need, and how can you apply it to optimize your business?
 
Once that’s determined, there are technology implications. Existing IoT devices, including industrial IoT devices that may have been in place for years, are already generating zettabytes worth of data. How will you manage the increased traffic? How will you address the new security vulnerabilities that IoT introduces? Will you take advantage of edge computing, cloud, or automation?
 
Requirements and success criteria are changing as IT and OT (Operational Technology) continue to overlap. Insight Cloud + Data Center Transformation (CDCT) is here to help navigate decisions around IoT and make important enhancements to your infrastructure.

Making IoT work for you

When new technologies or approaches are developed, there is a period of time wherein it isn’t fully clear how the innovation will be used or what it will be used for. Perhaps you have yet to identify how IoT could deliver on your business objectives.
 
Organizations use IoT for a variety of initiatives:
 
  • Gleaning data or insights into customer behavior or preferences to inform new product development or improve the effectiveness of sales and marketing efforts
  • Measuring usage or conditions remotely to optimize service or healthcare delivery, reduce the need for site visits, and control cost inputs
  • Automating activities to enhance the security, safety, and response mechanisms for automotive, healthcare, physical security, and other industries
  • Adding a layer of connectivity to improve integration, optimization, and management of factories, cities, natural resources, supply chain, and logistics
 
And this is just the beginning. What will IoT be used for in the future? We can explore possibilities together.
