Internet of Things Strategy Consulting to Deliver Rapid Growth and Innovation in a Hyper Connected World!

As a source of innovation, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents the next big disruptive opportunity. Whatever you call it – white space innovation, disruptive innovation, or game changing innovation – the internet of things will create the next generation in value creation.

IoT goes far beyond technology that senses, tracks, and measures data from devices and machines. As data from connected devices proliferate, entirely new service opportunities and business models arise. Companies that are able to mobilize around these trends can tap into new market opportunities. Most organizations, however, don’t have the capabilities, culture, or cross-functional approaches required to capitalize on IoT’s vast potential – which can eventually become a competitive liability given the number of new companies entering the space every day.

Questions that keep you awake at night:

  • What are the most important emerging IoT innovations that represent opportunities or threats?
  • What are the newest IoT business models that hold the greatest potential for competitive differentiation and new revenue streams?
  • What new products, services, and business models can we innovate that leverage IoT trends and technologies?
  • What new organizational capabilities do we need to drive a robust IoT strategy?
