  • What to think about when engaging a Service Provider
  • The sheer breadth of technologies employed in this space.

 

KEY MARKET DYNAMICS

  • The IoT professional services market was worth $10 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow by 30%
    in 2018.
  • The value proposition of IoT services is two-dimensional: saving money by maximizing productivity and reducing cost and waste and making money by improving demand forecasting, enhancing customer experience, and enabling faster time to market.
  • The IoT services market is still nascent in terms of technology fragmentation (over 30 platforms) and services provision, despite rapid advancements across standards, platforms, techniques, infrastructure, devices, architecture, and security. A diverse ecosystem is evolving to provide the “customer solution.”
  • The top three reasons IoT projects don’t take off are: resistance to change in an organization, cost-legacy systems incompatible with new requirements, and a lack of understanding of the RoI.
  • Clients told us that the top three areas that they'd like to see their service providers improve are: providing better communication through a project, increasing their domain expertise, and sorting out a service provider’s cumbersome internal processes to avoid slowing the project down.
