Take-away: The IoT market structure in a 2017 UK Ofcom report provides a framework that spans segmentation by business (B2B) and consumer (B2C), public and private sector.
IoT: what and when?
Do you know which market sectors will adopt the Internet-of-Things (IoT) most rapidly? Industry authors have asked this question in the context of business (B2B) and consumer (B2C) markets.  It will also be one of the topics of debate as Cisco brings together industry experts at the IoT World Forum (22-24 May, 2017).
Although policy makers and regulators have published reports on the importance of IoT within their jurisdictions,  there has been a reluctance by this type of organisation to commit to forecasts. As recently as January 2017, the U.S. Department of Commerce could justify a wait-and-see approach, by referring to “premature [IoT] quantification and metrics”.
The commissioning of a report by UK telecommunications regulator Ofcom indicates a pioneering willingness by a national regulator to forecast the scale of the Internet of Things (IoT).
What Is The Internet Of Things - A Complete Beginner’s Guide In 2017
Amazon Echo. FitBit. Even your coffee pot.
While you might be thinking “one of these things is not like the other,” they are all examples of the Internet of Things (IoT).
They are all everyday objects that can be connected to the internet and be recognized by other devices and contribute info to a database. The Internet of Things describes Internet V.2, where data is created by things.
Kevin Ashton, digital innovation expert who is credited with coining the term, defines the Internet of Things in this quote:
“If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things—using data they gathered without any help from us—we would be able to track and count everything, and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling, and whether they were fresh or past their best.”
Now that the Internet of Things has made the physical world one enormous information system, how will the Internet of Things impact business in 2017?
