This study sets out to understand the existing appetite of European industrial companies for IoT solutions going beyond Industry 4.0 concepts that focus on the internal "production & logistics" silos to more holistic and externally oriented IoT applications within an enterprise, such as the development of connected products and new services.
The study explores the following questions:
What is the current appetite of European industrial companies for IoT solutions and what are the trends in IoT adoption?
What use cases of IoT are the major drivers of adoption and what are the biggest barriers that slow it down?
Which departments make investment decisions for IoT and what does the budget for IoT look like?
How do the companies move forward with IoT initiatives and what type of collaboration engagements are on top of their agenda?
