The Internet of Things continues to make big gains across all industries. More than 80 percent of companies predict that IoT represents the most strategic technology initiative for their organization in a decade.
According to a new white paper produced by Zebra Technologies and Forrester Research, IoT is expected to play a major role in nearly every industry, including retail, manufacturing, consumer products, transportation, healthcare, government, oil/gas, and hospitality.
Nearly 65 percent of surveyed firms have deployed or are in the process of implementing IoT solutions, with 25 percent of surveyed global firms already having an IoT solution in place. By comparison, only 15 percent had an IoT solution in place when Zebra conducted its first IoT survey in 2012.
