While organisations in a global survey have put IoT as their top priority, those in Southeast Asia remain concerned with the cost and complexity of rolling out the internet of things
The internet of things (IoT) is gaining momentum around the world, with 92% of large organisations putting the technology as the top priority in their digital transformation efforts, a global survey has found.
Conducted independently on behalf of satellite communications company Inmarsat by Vanson Bourne, the survey involved 500 senior respondents from organisations with more than 1,000 employees across various industries, including energy, transportation and mining sectors.
According to the survey, almost all respondents are experiencing, or expect to experience, significant benefits from the deployment of IoT technologies. These include improved service delivery capabilities, better health and safety across the organisation and greater workforce productivity.
