NZ Organisations continue to experiment with IoT solutions

New Zealand organisations continue to experiment with IoT solutions as security and cost limits deployment

Auckland, New Zealand. October 6, 2016 – Initial results from the International Data Corporation (IDC) 2016 Global IoT Decision Maker Survey show that the market is pivoting away from proof of concept projects to scalable Internet of Things (IoT) deployments that are incorporating cloud, analytics, and security capabilities.

The survey, now in its third year, serves as a way to gain insights from enterprise IT and business decision makers about their perception of IoT as well as their early deployments or plans for deployment of IoT solutions. Topics covered in the survey include: levels of enterprise awareness of IoT; deployment plans; IoT adoption drivers and inhibitors; perceptions of IoT vendors and vendor selection criteria; organisational factors; and security, cloud, and analytics requirements.

IDC surveyed over 160 organisations in New Zealand, yielding some key findings from the 2016 survey:

• While cloud transition is the number one digital transformation initiative in New Zealand, IoT is picking up speed gradually.

• Only 11% of organisations surveyed have launched IoT solutions, with an additional 55% looking to deploy in the next 12 months as cloud and mobility dominate the DX landscape.

• 50% of respondents see IoT as strategic to their business as a means to compete more effectively.

"Setting strategies, finding budgets, and supporting IoT solutions have contributed to an ongoing tussle between line of business executives (LOBs) and CIOs. In New Zealand, the line of business and the C-Suite are driving the IOT direction" said Hugh Ujhazy Associate Vice President of IOT and Telecoms for APeJ. “IT departments remain significant contributors but the business outcomes are overwhelming technology choices.”

"This year we see confirmation that vendors who lead with a strong ecosystem of partners and the ability to demonstrate real ROI are the ones who will be considered as critical partners in an organisation’s IoT investment," added Monica Collier, Research Manager, Telecommunications. "We also note that traditional IT vendors and analytics providers are leading the discussion around IoT solutions."

This year’s edition of IDC's Global IoT Decision Maker Survey was conducted in July and August 2016 and includes over 4,500 (WW Total) respondents from more than 25 countries worldwide, spanning a wide array of industries (including manufacturing, retail, utilities, government, health, and finance).

The purpose of the survey is to gain insights from enterprise IT and business decision makers about their perception of IoT as well as their early deployments or plans for deployment of IoT solutions. The survey covered responses from enterprises where respondents were moderately to very familiar with the term ‘Internet of things’ and managed a minimum of 100 employees. Respondents are required to be involved in IT and/or business decisions at their company.
