2016 Internet Of Things Heatmap: Which Industries And Applications Are Hot?

March 29, 2016


Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled applications are poised to revolutionize digital customer experience and enhance digital operational excellence. But where will these IoT applications apply at your company? Some key IoT-enabled applications such as security and surveillance and building management apply across multiple industries, while others including inventory management, supply chain, and asset management, provide higher value in specific industries. CIOs, CTOs, and product development directors across multiple industries must understand and identify IoT application priorities and deployment momentum in their organizations.


  • IoT deployment is broad across geographies and vertical markets, in a wide variety of use cases
  • IoT solutions transform business processes, operations, and revenue models in many ways
  • Enterprises are deploying a wide array of IoT functional use cases according to their specific needs, without a single killer IoT app
  • Factors including asset intensity, IT investment, and industry adoption of IoT applications drive the momentum for specific IoT use cases

Key takeaways:

  • CIOs and CTOs will choose IoT solutions based on functional needs and use cases, rather than focusing on vertical-specific solutions.
  • Identify the most attractive business value propositions for IoT in your business based on specific needs for cost savings and product differentiation.
  • Use lessons learned from cloud solutions to develop IoT deployment strategies

Vendors mentioned: Cisco, GE, IBM, Jasper, KORE, L&T Infotech, Microsoft, Numerex, PTC ThingWorx, SAP, Schneider Electric, Xively, and Zebra.
