What do the best companies do to create successful Internet of Things and Data-driven products and services - innovation, monetization, transformation, data lakes, prototypes?



Industry luminaries Kent Strand of Accredent, Ashis Bhattacharya of Winnebago and John Hogue of General Mills discuss the critical need for Internet of Things strategies and initiatives to focus more on customer and business value and less on technology at last year's IoTFuse Conference's keynote: IoT Strategy Roundtable.


Connecting Business Success to IoT and Data Initiatives



Research by Sweden's Tele2 (Nasdaq: TLTO) concluded that lack of a clear connection to the business and the customers is a far greater barrier to IoT success than any technology concerns.  Failure to successfully connect IoT and data analytics initiatives with the business can be devastatingly expensive in terms of lost opportunity, failed investment, and stalled momentum. 


In 2018, 67% of organizations plan Internet of Things (IoT) and Data initiatives. Just 1.5% of executives have a clear vision of what IoT and Data will do for them.


The telco, which serves about 15 million customers, found that 60% of respondents picked "lack of strategy" over considerations including finance, technology and "lack of competence" when asked what they believed was the chief barrier to IoT success.


The feedback suggests many organizations do not have a clear understanding about what they are trying to achieve and is a source of the unusually lack of success in many IoT and their related data projects.



60% of IoT initiatives stall at the Proof of Concept (PoC) stage and only 26% of companies have had an IoT initiative that they considered a complete success.

Customer and business value are underdeveloped in many of IoT and Data offerings. A 2017 study conducted by Cisco shows that 60 percent of IoT initiatives stall at the Proof of Concept (PoC) stage and only 26 percent of companies have had an IoT initiative that they considered a complete success. Even worse: a third of all completed projects were not considered a success.


In the meantime, the best companies are successfully bringing to market smart connected data-driven offerings and operations are changing business models, the nature of customer value, and even the basis for competition. Businesses and industries are being disrupted and transformed at an accelerating pace.



What do the best companies do to create successful Internet of Things and Data-driven products and services?



Innovation?

Monetization?

Transformation? 

Prototypes? 

Cloud Platforms?

Data Lakes?



Connecting your IoT and Data initiatives to the business and the customers has proven a very good place to start.



Internet of Things and data analytics driven digital experiences are fundamentally transforming customer intimacy and brand affinity, changing how we compete for customer attention, and digital operations are changing how we operate our businesses.

At Accredent's session at Product Camp 2017, Accredent shared its best practices-based based framework for connecting IoT and Data Analytics initiatives to the Business and Customers. This was based upon the same acclaimed material delivered at the 2017 Society of Concurrent Product Development (SCPD) national conference.
