Building a strong business case for IoT


Michelle Hoyle

Head of IoT Marketing, Vodafone Internet of Things

Whether you’re a large-scale enterprise or a growing start-up, the road to Internet of Things (IoT)success isn’t always clear. The technology is evolving fast — it can be hard to know which IoT projects to invest in and which are over-hyped. It can also be difficult to explain the value of your investment to stakeholders and employees.

That’s why we’ve created the IoT Business Case Advisor to guide you. It’s an invaluable IoT resource — showing you what you stand to gain from this exciting technology. Here’s how it can help you build a powerful business case as you embark on your IoT journey.

Be inspired

It seems like everyone’s talking about IoT, and for good reason — it can be a great business investment. Last year, 95% of IoT adopters said they were achieving tangible benefits from it. 1 IoT can help you build better relationships with your customers, boost productivity and even unlock new revenue streams. Where organisations reported an increase in revenue from adopting IoT, it averaged 19%. 2

But IoT isn’t one-size-fits-all. You need to stay on top of the latest innovations and trends to know how it can benefit your organisation. The IoT Business Case Advisor contains exciting use cases from a wide range of industries. Reading about the real-life IoT deployments of your peers can give you an idea of what might work for your own business — have a look and be inspired.

Be informed

Your budget is finite, and you need to be able to justify your investment in IoT. We’re here to help. Our IoT Business Case Advisor covers the basics to help demystify the technology. We’ll translate the technical jargon into clear business benefits. Our experts have compiled the latest whitepapers — so you can speak with authority when you explain your IoT investment to stakeholders and employees.

Of course, you’ll also be keen to know how your business stacks up against the competition. We’ve gathered the latest adoption figures, so you can see how many of your industry peers have started their IoT journeys.

Be reassured

You can learn about IoT in even more detail with articles and opinion pieces written by Vodafone for Business’ dedicated IoT experts. Reading our real customer testimonials will provide even greater reassurance of the benefits you stand to gain.

Developing this deeper level of knowledge around topics like security and implementation — and seeing how IoT has worked for others, can give your business and stakeholders the drive to succeed.

Be ready

IoT can be complex and challenging. We want to help you simplify it by giving you everything you need to accelerate your IoT journey, from planning to execution. Our in-depth resources can help you feel more inspired, informed and reassured when it comes to IoT.
