Just about everyone has heard of the Internet of Things (IoT) by now – what’s not so clear is how businesses can benefit from IoT strategies.

For companies, IoT brings new ways to monitor and manage objects in the physical world, while massive new streams of data offer better avenues for decision making (often mediated by machines).

The steady fall in prices of sensors and communications technologies, combined with a parallel rise in understanding of how they can be applied, have raised the strategic importance of IoT, which can produce immense value in settings ranging from retail and healthcare to manufacturing and technology.

That said, for organizations, targeting IoT applications correctly and managing them effectively is far from easy, leaving many companies stuck and unable to move beyond pilots.

Analysts believe a good place to start with your IoT plan is focus on what your already do, make or sell.

One survey found that the most successful companies often played to their strengths—rather than betting on unfamiliar markets or new products. These IoT leaders, the group getting the most economic benefit from IoT, were nearly three times more likely to add IoT connectivity to existing products they sell than the laggards were.

Conversely, laggards—those in the bottom quintile of economic returns—were significantly more likely to focus on developing new IoT products or services.
