Surveying 1,758 businesses across the world, the study found that more than a third (34 percent) of businesses are now using IoT technology as possible use cases appear every day, and 83 percent saying they are expanding their deployment based on encouraging initial results. Almost all of these (95 percent) say that they are seeing a benefit from using IoT technology, with nearly three-quarters (72 percent) saying their digital transformation would be impossible without it, and eight percent saying their entire business depends on the technology.
