Taking IoT to mass market

Scaling your product to the ‘00s, ‘000s, or even millions brings additional commercial and technical risks that can be easily overlooked during development and early deployment. Getting your IoT product to scale profitably is a multi-stage journey that requires different skills, experience and approaches at each stage. ​​

Getting any technology product or service to scale is a challenge

55% of organisations “have struggled to deliver business value from IoT projects”. Most have conducted in-house pilots, but “lacked a coherent strategy to deploy their initiatives enterprise-wide” according to Cognizant.

Whether your IoT development is an in-house project or a new product or service, it will inevitably involve a set of competing technology choices. One set of choices may work for a prototype or in-house pilot, but will they work at the scale and reliability you are targeting? Is your profitability dependent on deploying at scale?

The true cost of an enterprise-wide initiative or scale IoT deployment is often underestimated as are the risks. This can lead to a loss in stakeholder confidence (and sometimes funding).

Getting your IoT product to the scale and operational reliability required is a multi-stage journey that requires different skills, experience and approaches at each stage.
