Internet of Things: Fear Not, Trust Not

Posted December 31, 2014 in Business Technology & Digital Transformation Strategies, Data Analytics & Digital Technologies Cutter Benchmark Review
As much interest as there has been in what we call the "Internet of Things" (IoT), regardless of how we exactly define it, this is still very much an emerging technology, and opinions about it have not yet fully formed. The first thing we observed in the Cutter survey results on this topic is that many people simply do not have a strong opinion, or sufficient experience as of yet, to express a clear position. This was reflected in the low number of replies (48 respondents), which in itself is a notable fact.

Deriving firm conclusions from sparse input is almost impossible, of course.
