The industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a major part of the “fourth industrial revolution”, but only 26 percent of decision makers have a well articulated digital transformation strategy.
That’s according to a 2017 Survey Report conducted at the Industry of Things World, which surveyed 1,124 decision makers. It found that most knew the importance of IIoT deployment, but were taking a ‘wait-and-see’ approach to the new technology.
The results are similar to other IIoT surveys conducted in the past twelve months.
45 percent of people surveyed said their company did not have a strategy for digital transformation, while 29 percent had only a basic strategy.
Only 16 percent of people said that their company has a comprehensive roadmap, while 69 percent said they have a modest roadmap. This typically includes a pilot program or consultation with IIoT developers to find out the benefits.
