In 2015, the Internet of things (IoT) made its mark on both enterprises and consumers and became a driving force for innovation in our cities, homes, cars and workplaces. Vodafone and other companies like Skypatrol predict this momentum will continue into 2016 and beyond. Leaders in every industry are recognizing the potential of IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies as they are increasingly used to transform businesses. The Vodafone M2M Barometer 2015 found that more than a quarter of all companies worldwide are now using M2M technologies. M2M is finding its identity as a vital business solution that touches everything from back-end operations to customer experiences. We can soon expect even greater growth and increased focus on sophisticated and meaningful solutions. As we move into the 2016, it’s not a matter of “if,” but “how,” companies are using M2M to transform their businesses. Based on an interview with Andrew Morawski, head of M2M for the Americas at Vodafone, we offer six predictions for the M2M market in 2016 and beyond.
