In order to create transparency around what it takes to develop a commercial industrial IoT solution, we created an IoT infographic that helps people adopting IoT technology understand some of the crucial elements of the journey. On a high level, there are usually five steps:

  1. Business case development
  2. Build vs. Buy decision
  3. Proof of Concept (PoC)
  4. Initial pilot rollout
  5. Commercial deployment

The corresponding IoT infographic (which you can click to enlarge) is based on our research, including 30+ interviews with IoT users and vendors:

You can access the IoT infographic in high resolution as a .png here and as a .pdf here.

Key insights include:

  • More than 1/3 of people do not start with a clear IoT problem in mind but rather explore the technology first.
  • IoT cloud/platforms are leading the way in coordinating IoT solution development.
  • Not starting a comprehensive organizational change effort on day 1 is one of the most common mistakes cited.
  • Connected industry and smart cities are currently leading the way in IoT solution development.

Additional details, such as a comparison of some key vendors and a detailed discussion of the technology stack are provided in our corresponding 31-page Guide to IoT solutions development for IoT business and technical decision makers.
