• Companies must embrace digital transformation in order to stay
relevant to their customers, else risk ceding market share to
competitors who are able to adapt more quickly.
• At its core, digital transformation is driving companies to reframe their relationships with their customers, suppliers and employees through leveraging new technologies to engage in ways that were not possible before.
• These new technologies - SaaS, mobile, and the Internet of Things
(IoT) - demand a new level of connectivity that cannot be achieved with yesterday’s integration approaches.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform.

Customer service technology buyers typically plan for the next one to two years. But to truly become customer-obsessed, companies need to understand what new technologies and customer service experiences will seem normal for their customers in five years.
By 2021, the internet of things (IoT) will have transformed many companies from being products-based to services-based. Rather than wait for the future to arrive, you need to start planning for tomorrow’s technology today.
Read the Forrester Research report now. It discusses:
• Service experiences your customers will expect in 2021
• Five technologies that will reshape customer service by 2021
• Three steps to help you get started
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
IoT impacts every business. Mobile and the Internet of Things will change the types of devices that connect into a company’s systems. These newly connected devices will produce new types of data. The Internet of Things will help a business gain efficiencies, harness intelligence from a wide range of equipment, improve operations and increase customer satisfaction. IoT will also have a profound impact on people’s lives. It will improve public safety, transportation and healthcare with better information and faster communications of this information. While there are many ways that the Internet of Things could impact society and business, there are at least three major benefits of IOT that will impact every business, which include: communication, control and cost savings.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
This series explores the role of modern digital technology in the evolution of manufacturing production, defined here as the value chain of internal and external contributors to the manufacture and delivery of products. Each chapter is designed to help operators visualize how they can build-out production of the future, and how to leverage help from the value chain to make faster progress.

Kevin Ashton founded the Auto-ID Center at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and
has done pioneering work in radio-frequency
identification and sensor technology.
Ashton is known for coining the term “the
Internet of Things” to describe a system where
the Internet is connected to the physical world
via ubiquitous sensors. In 2015, he spoke at a
European customer service conference and
noted that field service management is the
first industry being transformed by IoT.
Some people in the industry have noted that
the entire IoT concept came from trying to
solve field service problems in 1999. IoT’s
origin story lies in field service management.
Clearly, field service management and IoT are
deeply intertwined. But how are the changes
being implemented? And how can you
benefit from them?
From cars to factories to cities, many governments are already collecting information from citizens and connected devices that send and receive data over the internet of things (IoT).
