AIoT - How IoT Leaders are Breaking Away

Based on findings from a study of executives from across the globe


AI + IoT: Can it create a Competitive Advantage?

We’re seeing that organizations working with IoT data realize that if they want to get the real value out of it, they need AI and analytics. I think it’s fair to say that most successful IoT operations are actually AIoT operations. Oliver Schabenberger COO and CTO SAS

Together, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are having a bigger-than-expected impact – and leaders report that the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is the key to competing effectively.

The impact of AIoT may be greater, and taking hold more quickly, than many observers expect. Our recent worldwide study of 450 business leaders across industries finds real momentum behind the AIoT, along with a number of other surprising findings.

What impact will the AIoT likely have on your business strategy? Where should you focus? This short overview offers a birds’-eye view of the study findings, so you can zero in on those with the greatest relevance to your organization today, using the full study.

The data behind the story

It’s difficult for me to separate AI and machine learning from IoT. Every IoT project we’re involved with has a heavy AI and analytics component. We’re collecting and analyzing large data sets, which is not necessarily new. What’s different is the need to do it all in real time at such large volumes. Andy Daecher Leader U.S. IoT practice Deloitte Consulting LLP
There’s a clear and growing understanding of the central importance of data in running a successful, competitive company. So now, when we speak to the most senior executives, they already understand the strategic importance of data, and of the role that AI and the IoT play in that context.
