IoT Demographics matter, new research shows
July 18, 2018 / ZENOBIA HEGDE
New research released by the IoT M2M Council – a trade association that represents 25,000 IoT buyers worldwide – shows that there are strong differences in how IoT technology adoption is viewed by OEMs, applications developers, and enterprise users. The results were generated by new queries in the IMC‘s Quarterly IoT Buyers Index for Q2 2018, a survey of more than 100 individuals from these three categories. The report shows surprisingly clear distinctions between IoT technology buyers in what they view as their biggest hurdles and their timeframes for finishing projects. Perhaps the biggest surprise was that security and privacy issues surrounding connected devices were not among buyers’ top concerns.
