Forrester predicts fleet management in transportation, security and surveillance applications in government, inventory and warehouse management applications in retail and industrial asset management in primary manufacturing will be the hottest areas for IoT growth.
Forrester also found enterprises are more likely than smaller companies to use IoT. 23% of global enterprise respondents use IoT, but only about 14% of small and medium-size business (SMB) respondents do. For example, Lufthansa Airlines is using real-time aircraft, airport, and weather sensor data to improve on-time performance and optimize operations.
