“Digital transformation” is an IT buzzword, but it boils down to using digital technology and, lately, the Internet of Things, to change the company’s business model. Businesses that want to undertake digital transformations need solid plans and strong partnerships to make them successful.
These days, data is coming at organizations in massive waves, from computing devices (such as smartphones and tablets) to connected devices (like smart refrigerators and wearable health monitors). According to Gartner, there will be 8.4 billion connected devices in use in 2017, and 3.1 billion will be used by businesses.
But enterprises that effectively collect, store and analyze this data can use it to drive innovations through the Internet of Things. IoT enables capabilities such as data analysis for predictive insight and better decision-making, as well as automation to improve the efficiency and productivity of far-flung operations. For organizations that get IoT right, the results are almost like magic.
