by Exosite, on July 1, 2015
At the outset of any connected device platform deployment, it is important to understand the market need that it will fulfill. A clear understanding of this will help inform important technology and trade-off decisions during the development of your IoT process, set internal expectations about the results, and ensure customer needs are adequately met. Can you identify the IoT problems to solve? Below are a few of the questions that should be answered in an attempt to clearly identify the problems an IoT solution will solve by developing an IoT strategy.
What customers deserve focus and what is the customer need?
When looking at spending, what is the expense to be reduced?
Where and how will the solution gain revenue?
How will the corporate brand be furthered?
How will the solution protect against competitive forces?
Successful IoT solutions solve problems instead of looking for them. Enterprises must develop a culture of purpose that seeks to find and meet problems with solutions, as opposed to merely piecing together technology without a clear vision.
