The Internet of Things (IoT) remains one of the most provocative – and for many the most exciting – expressions in the technology and Enterprise sectors. For good reason. The world will see anything between 25 and 50 billion internet-connected devices by 2020 and something close to $2 trillion of economic benefit globally.
This economic impact will come from Enterprise-scale transformation of products and services which will optimise operational efficiencies and deliver superior customer experience. Enterprises who embrace digital connected services will lead the way in new subscription based (X-as-a-Service or XaaS) business models and in generating new forms of revenue.
This time last year much of the advice for large Enterprises was in one hand, somewhat modest – monitor their industry, engage and experiment with small–scale projects to assess their benefits. The advice given with the other hand was emphasising the need for speed, vision and planning otherwise they’d be left behind by fast moving competitors. Quite a conundrum for the CxO community.
At Arkessa we have the great fortune of working with and enabling Enterprises large and small as they adopt and lead in IoT deployment and the proving out of new business models spanning OPEX based XaaS, Ad-funded IoT, Predictive Maintenance and Enterprise Mobility solutions.
Connectivity is one of the keys in creating the solutions and services which will drive Enterprise IoT deployment. The managed connectivity service provided by Arkessa enables the global scale, reliability and resilience needed for Enterprise-grade solutions in Transportation, Utilities, Insurance, Retail, Facilities Management and whether the requirement is for high data 4G or 3G, low data cellular or low power wide area (LPWAN).
