This research service aims to provide a snapshot of a small number of end users’ investment attitudes towards Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in order to illustrate enterprises’ views on developments in the IoT market. The study reveals that though the market is nascent, it has surprising open-mindedness towards traditional and new vendors.

The biggest reason for investing in IoT is to improve productivity – in terms of both process efficiency and customer-facing activities. Internet of Things investments originate from business units and are usually done in conjunction with the IT/Information System (IS) functions.

The 2 most important barriers to Internet of Things investments are other budget priorities and concerns with regard to data privacy, security, and compliance. A handful of respondents prefer a Operational Expenditure (Opex) Only’ model, while others prefer to own a few assets, expecting to be spending Capital Expenditure (Capex) in the next years.
