"Internet of Things" (IoT) solutions that machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies like RFID tags, GPS systems, and ZigBee sensors enable are gaining momentum as multiple forces align to drive adoption to the next level. Widely deployed IP networks, declining device costs, and new business opportunities contribute to emerging demand for IoT solutions. These solutions use various M2M technologies to monitor and transfer the status of physical assets to improve business processes and cost efficiencies in specific industries, such as utilities, healthcare, and transportation. This report focuses on five key dynamics that infrastructure and operations (I&O) executives should know about IoT developments and how to prepare your infrastructure and workforce to capture the opportunity.
