Agile partnerships are in high demand to try and mitigate pilot purgatory and translate proofs of concept to real-world implementations.
This Business Impact Brief by 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, reveals that 69 percent of enterprises plan to increase spending with IoT professional service partners over the next two years. Agile partnerships are in high demand to try and mitigate pilot purgatory and translate proofs of concept to real-world implementations.
It is now commonplace for enterprises to partner with an IoT professional service partner, whether decisionmakers expect to buy platform and tools to execute their projects or build from scratch. Professional service firms are sought after to tackle complex requirements efficiently and at scale. Typically, enterprise buyers work with a range of partners on IoT projects, and, increasingly, they expect to work with several IT-focused professional service firms (see figure below). Many organizations are finding that service partners that can showcase IoT technology in a pilot project may not have the full range of skills needed to roll that technology out across a broad range of existing infrastructure and applications with their varied requirements.
