IoT is not just a technology initiative anymore

Organizations implementing IoT are increasingly focusing on the business outcomes of the technology. IoT initiatives are no longer driven by the sole purpose of internal operational improvement. IT and business stakeholders must work together to align IoT projects with business objectives for improving revenue and customer experience, but they are bound by legacy approaches. Organizations with high levels of IoT maturity achieve higher rates of success in their IoT adoption. 

Define measurable IoT goals

Adopting IoT solutions and achieving business outcomes is complex. Organizations lacking experience in adopting IoT-based digital technologies need a well-defined IoT strategy and a set metric to measure success. IoT leaders must develop a clear understanding of the enterprise’s business objectives and the CEO’s strategic imperatives. Work closely with business stakeholders to ensure that outcomes align with strategy.

The technology and service providers to be most impacted by the emergence of CPS security are those that operate as stand-alone players in niche areas such as OT or IoT security. Traditional IT security players have the opportunity to expand their total addressable market by reshaping their product strategy, aligning to the unique requirements of OT and IoT and providing industry-specific capabilities for CPS. Stand-alone security providers will additionally be impacted by an increasing number of original equipment manufacturers (OEM) of connected devices embedding security features. As a result, Gartner estimates that the majority of providers that retain a narrow focus will struggle to remain competitive and be out of business within five years. This, along with the expected increasing level of maturity around the CPS security concept, will drive an increasing number of OEM of IoT devices to embed security features in their products, and as a consequence, impact security market dynamics.

Gartner recommends industry leaders to build a modular and configurable solution, noting that Cognite "offers a modular services portfolio and pricing model allowing clients to enhance functionality and scale the solution step by step. Cognite offers four service levels: basic, premium, enterprise and business-critical” to address a client’s specific needs and digital maturity levels."

The Internet of Things is evolving into a significant component and a major contributor to digital business initiatives across organizations. This Hype Cycle outlines the key areas that enterprises should evaluate as they accelerate their IoT initiatives.

IoT is regarded as one of the top five game-changing technologies due to its ability to create new sources of data, provide real-time performance updates and create new value propositions. This report looks at how far your peers have come with IoT, and the budget and financial requirements for new IoT adopters.

This impact will result in both a challenge and an opportunity for security providers. On one hand, the embedding of some security features such as access control, data security and communication security into devices will take away some market growth opportunity to security players. On the other hand, specialist security providers have the opportunity to partner with OEM manufacturers and develop this market through an indirect approach. One example is HARMAN (a Samsung Electronics company), a provider of security systems for connected vehicles, partnering with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an automotive manufacturer. Another interesting example in more recent times is WALLIX Group, a provider of privileged account management software, partnering with Alleantia, an IoT solutions vendor.”

 

Thank you, Gartner!
