May - June, 2017


According to a recent study from Aruba

Networks, IoT adoption in several sectors

is widespread – exceeding 70 percent in

the enterprise workplace, for example,

and more than 60 percent in the industrial

sector – and mass adoption is expected

by 2019. Overall, more than half of busi-

nesses have implemented some kind of

IoT solution (and another 32 percent plan

to implement it within the next two years).

Many of the respondents reported

that IoT returns higher ROI or greater in-

novation than anticipated. Post-adoption,

32 percent of executives said that they

realized profit increases. Similarly, 29

percent of executives expected busi-

ness efficiency improvements, whereas

46 percent experienced efficiency gains.

Twenty-eight percent expected innova-

tion increases, and 48 percent reported

more innovation. More than three quar-

ters say IoT in the workplace has im-

proved the effectiveness of their IT team.

About 72 percent of companies sur-

veyed have implemented a smart work-

place IoT strategy for productivity and ef-

ficiency, from air conditioning and lighting

systems (56 percent) to personal mobile

devices (51 percent).

When it comes to verticals, in the in-

dustrial sector, 62 percent of respondents

have implemented IoT, with monitoring

and maintaining industrial functions iden-

tified as the most prevalent use case.

Use of IP-based surveillance cameras

for security is still in its infancy, with only






he enterprise market for the Internet of things (IoT) is

buzzing, with adoption continuing apace. While it’s a

nascent space for channel partners, there are increasing

opportunities for them to participate in the growth.
