What to consider
when implementing
an IoT solution
Published Published Sept. 15th, 2016

Story Highlights

The Internet of Things (IoT) is helping myriad businesses around the world grow and save money in a big way. This exciting new technology does so by connecting the components of your business processes to the Internet, and providing valuable data that can help identify problems, optimize systems and improve efficiencies.

It’s tempting for an IT director or business leader to delay their company’s adoption of IoT, opting to learn from their competitors' mistakes. However, early adoption affords businesses many benefits—not the least of which is a significant edge over their competition.

The key to a successful early adoption of IoT is having a well-defined plan in place at the beginning of your trip and a trusted IoT partner available to offer support along the way. Consider each and every factor that will play into your adoption of IoT, from your budget to your ability to efficiently implement new technologies into your existing processes, and the support and security your vendor can provide.

Story Highlights

Things might seem complicated, but a solid plan and the right IoT partner will help ensure you’re not wasting time and money, and—even worse—watching your competitors fly past you.

Let’s take an in-depth look at this crucial element.

You don't need to be the expert

Implementing an IoT solution isn't as extensive of a process as you might think. To ensure you’re prepared for the road ahead, ask yourself the following questions. They will give you a good idea of your existing knowledge of the key components of an IoT setup:

Traffic

IoT-enabled sensors can be used to analyze traffic patterns and automate things like traffic lights. An automated system can also be employed to direct drivers through the most expedient route or to the most convenient parking lot, and further enable them to pay for parking via smartphone app.

Lighting

Smart lighting not only enables cities to automate the brightness of streetlamps for energy and cost efficiency, but cities can receive automated alerts when a bulb needs replacing. What’s more, existing streetlights can be programmed to shine coloured light to indicate a “no parking” zone ahead of scheduled snow plowing.

Data analysis

Each of these connected devices and programs collect a wide range of information. City planners and managers can collect this data in a single dashboard, affording them better transparency into each and every city process and enabling them to make better data-led decisions to reduce costs and improve the quality of life of its citizens.
