​Internet of Things experimentation continues but security and cost limit Kiwi deployment

Kiwi businesses pivot away from proof of concept projects within the Internet of Things.

New Zealand businesses are pivoting away from proof of concept projects within the Internet of Things, instead focusing deployments that are incorporating cloud, analytics, and security capabilities.

While cloud transition as the number one digital transformation initiative in New Zealand, IDC research findings suggest that across the country, IoT is picking up speed gradually.

But only 11 per cent of Kiwi organisations have so far launched IoT solutions, with an additional 55 per cent looking to deploy in the next 12 months as cloud and mobility dominate the DX landscape.

Meanwhile, 50 per cent of New Zealand organisations 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,” IDC associate vice president of IoT, Hugh Ujhazy, said.

“In New Zealand, the line of business and the C-Suite are driving the IOT direction.

“IT departments remain significant contributors but the business outcomes are overwhelming technology choices.”

In 2016 and beyond, New Zealand will 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.

“We also note that traditional IT vendors and analytics providers are leading the discussion around IoT solutions,” IDC research manager of telecommunications, Monica Collier, added.
