The Journey to IoT Deployment
Understanding how an organization can maximize the potential of Internet of Things (IoT) is typically a major hurdle to clear. Because the IoT can be harnessed to achieve so many benefits, companies must first understand how it can address their specific challenges, work processes, and differentiators. Consider the ways that a fleet management organization leverages IoT technologies, and how these would differ from how a utilities company integrates connected devices and networks into their operations. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for IoT connectivity. If you don’t know where you are in the journey to maximizing your benefits, you may miss some crucial details that make the difference between a successful launch and a struggle from day one.
Where Do You Stand?
That is why you should have your organization’s solutions assessed for Internet of Things readiness. By getting a detailed survey of where your company stands, especially relative to other companies in your vertical, you can determine if you can launch sooner rather than later. You don’t want to be surprised with bugs and issues along the way, which could also frustrate customers (and you don’t want that!). It may seem like a lot of work to have an Internet of things readiness survey done on your solutions, but it actually may be a lot easier than you think.
The Easy Solution
KORE and the IoT M2M Council (IMC) have teamed up to help businesses take the first step by creating the IoT Readiness Calculator (IRC). The IRC is an IoT readiness assessment survey that consists of just fewer than 30 very specific questions about your organization that will give you a better understanding of where you are in the IoT implementation process. Once completed, you’ll receive an email with a scorecard that details the readiness of your IoT project, and, uniquely, how your IoT readiness compares to others in the same vertical market.
Because the IoT is still a very new prospect for many businesses, having input from organizations (like KORE) that understand the space inside and out will help transition the journey from “Where are we?” to “Let’s get started.” For KORE, the IRC is an opportunity for us to use our insight to empower organizations like yours with the ability to know precisely where you stand and how to move forward with your IoT solutions.
