The M2M Adoption Barometer 2013

White Paper

White Papers | June 2013

M2M is on everybody’s minds. But how do you separate the fact from the fiction and find out where your organisation really stands? How does your progress compare to peers in your region and industry?

image-M2M-The M2M Adoption Barometer 2013

This exclusive report, produced in conjunction with Circle Research and leading M2M commentators Analysys Mason, answers these questions and more.

We've exhaustively studied the experiences of more than 300 organisations, through in-depth interviews and quantitative research, creating a unique ground-level picture of the state of M2M around the world. You'll discover:

  • Which sectors, regions and sizes of organisation are leading the way in M2M adoption today — and what surprises the future holds.
  • Which factors are driving investment — and why project outcomes often differ significantly from expectations.
  • Which concerns are really holding businesses back at each stage of adoption — and why cost isn’t everything.
" It's difficult for enterprises to fully comprehend the value of the data they will receive from M2M connected devices. M2M is such a shift in the way we value the objects in our life. M2M can literally give voice to every nonhuman object."

Steve Hilton,
