Enterprises speak: IoT gets real
In this analysis, we present the findings of the latest GSMA Intelligence IoT enterprise survey of almost 2,900 enterprises. This comes at a time when IoT projects have been put on hold – at least in the short term – as a result of the aftershock from Covid-19. As revealed by our survey results, the proportion of companies planning to deploy IoT within a year has contracted by more than 20 percentage points between 2019 and 2020. Most of this change has been accounted for by enterprises with fewer than 250 employees. More broadly, this report explores the IoT adoption journey for enterprises, including an updated look at the drivers, challenges and measures of success for IoT in the enterprise sector.
