Get the most out of
the Internet of
Things in five steps

The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived, and will
have a profound impact on every aspect of our
society.
This whitepaper aims to assist businesses by
providing key considerations for their business
strategy when implementing or extending an
IoT solution.

The IoT promises tremendous opportunities for innovation, driven by insights from data analytics and near real-time connectivity on an unlimited range of devices or ‘things’. Our research shows a lack of understanding of the IoT, which is critical to overcome before any IoT deployment. This lack of understanding suggests unrealised potential for the IoT among Australian organisations.

This whitepaper is designed for mid-sized business, large enterprise or government organisations to understand the key considerations for your business strategy when looking to implement an IoT solution. 

The whitepaper explains IoT in detail and how it differs from Machine2Machine (M2M), using real-world examples to show the opportunity and to provide actionable information for your organisation to utilise. This paper will help you identify how you can use IoT to drive innovation and improve service, reduce cost, improve productivity and increase efficiency within your business. 

Key Findings

This step-by-step plan includes five key findings to help you increase productivity or set your organisation apart from the competition. 

 

 

Identify opportunities for IoT solutions

An internal review of your business issues and opportunities in your business will assist you to identify which problems can be solved with an IoT solution. 

 

Develop the right business model

As well as identifying the right business problem, it’s important to develop the right business model and having cross -company engagement, an agile business model and alignment with key stakeholders.  

 

Assess the various technology options

The next step is to assess the various technology options and work out which best suits your needs. This will involve consideration around:
a) Device type(s).
b) Technology pros and cons
c) Access network options
d) Application and platform considerations

 

Develop the right operating model

Security is key from both a data and network perspective. It’s important to ensure that the solution is developed with the right operating model in mind.  

 

Select the right IoT partner

There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ option and selecting the right IoT partner is the  can make all the difference between smooth sailing and a daily headache. In our experience  is that leading IoT experts skilled in implementation and project management will make your transition to a ‘smarter’ business more seamless.

 

Each of these insights are explored in detail in the whitepaper, along with details of how IoT is being used in the mining, financial services, local government, manufacturing, transport and logistics and retail sectors.
