Find out why now is the time for businesses to adopt a strategy for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT), one of the top enterprise trends of 2014 is fundamentally changing the way business is done by making processes more efficient, driving deeper customer connections, and introducing new business models and revenue streams. Susan Hauser, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Enterprise and Partner Group, has written a blog post on The Official Microsoft Blog introducing a top 10 list of benefits a company can gain from adopting an Internet of Things strategy.

For example, one benefit is getting a jump-start on your competition. “As more enterprises adopt strategies to capitalize on IoT, it’s becoming increasingly important to do the same — like those who have grown business 70 percent after connecting a factory floor to technicians in Italy, taken thousands of cars off the streets of Paris through an intelligent car-sharing service or united disparate data streams and systems in a hospital to provide physicians anywhere, anytime access to critical patient data.”

Find the rest of the benefits on the full “top ten” list, check out Microsoft’s vision for IoT and how it can transform enterprises across all industries, and read the rest of Hauser’s post on The Official Microsoft Blog.
