CFO Insights — Capitalizing on the promise — and the power — of the Internet of Things

Published on: Oct 22, 2015

Over the last 20 years, the Internet has been nothing short of transformative. And judging by the numbers, the Internet of Things (IoT) — a suite of technologies and processes that allows data to be tracked, analyzed, shared, and acted upon through ubiquitous connectivity — may have the same impact in half that time.

For C-suite executives, and CFOs in particular, understanding IoT and developing a point of view regarding its potential ramifications is essential. Given both the financial ramifications inherent in adopting IoT as well as the CFO’s broad reach across the organization, finance chiefs are positioned to champion IoT by jointly working to shape strategy choices and applying a financial lens that maximizes the value of the chosen strategy.

This issue examines how the IoT can influence business models both in terms of cost saving and asset efficiency and in driving top-line growth. In addition, it addresses the components of an effective IoT strategy and the metrics needed to truly embrace how the IoT is attracting and engaging customers.
