The Role of System Integrators in M2M and IoT

IoT has caused many providers across all segments of the IoT value chain to shift and adapt their strategies. System integrators (SIs) are uniquely positioned to address the challenges that IoT poses due to their ability to leverage their experience integrating legacy systems into end-to-end solutions, their knowledge of the IoT landscape and players in the market, and their existing relationships with enterprises and end-users. Most enterprises today are relying on system integrators to play the leading role in implementing their IoT solutions and in guiding their digital transformation. System integrators are skilled at creating end-to-end solutions from multiple components from multiple vendors. At its core, the IoT is a complex system of systems. The complexity of implementing these solutions is a key concern for enterprises, and system integrators help them to navigate a highly-fragmented ecosystem of IoT vendors and component technologies.

Robotics: Digital Transformation in the US Energy Market

3Q 2017

A recent ABI Research B2B Survey with 50 US-based energy firms showed high familiarity on robotics (88%). However, penetration rates remain low since only 2 out of 10 utility firms shared that they have deployed robotics in their current operation. However, ABI Research expects deployment of robotics to accelerate because18% of respondents shared that they are likely to deploy robotics in the next 12 months, and 50% shared that they are on the early investigation stage and/or assessing deployments. A more detailed discussion on digital transformation in the U.S. Energy market can be found in the ABI Research report Industry Survey: Transformative Technology Adoption and Attitudes - Utilities.
