Digital journeys. The first steps?

The power of IoT can be an incredible benefit to a business, but it’s very important to get it right — right from the start. So if you think your customers can benefit from the connective power of the Internet of Things, but don’t know how to explain the potential benefits, here’s five questions to ask them, because if they answer honestly, it could pay dividends for years.

Why do you want to do this?

As questions go, this seems a bit obvious, but it’s the single most important one a business can ask itself. A lot of companies can look to digitise because “It’s what everyone is doing?” without really analysing what the actual value benefits and ROI such a move can deliver.

Some companies can also find their IoT implementation hampered because their current ‘analog’ infrastructure isn’t in a position to adapt quickly and at scale to digital.

Digital transformation is a great buzz-phrase, but it’s a significant commitiment in terms of investment and time, but by agreeing the goals in the short, medium and long term, you and your customers can produce a practical plan to a rewarding digital transformation.
