Internet of Things

Sensors and ubiquitous connectivity provide the next growth opportunities for companies in all industries.

The Internet of Things presents an enormous opportunity to transform the way we live and do business. McKinsey’s Global Institute predicts IoT will have an economic impact of between $4 trillion and $11 trillion by 2025. Companies can capture value by creating new revenue streams from providing connected solutions and services to consumers and enterprises and by reducing costs in field service operations. Much of the IoT data currently captured, however, is under leveraged. We take an integrated approach to digitizing the physical world to create new insights and business models and to unlock real value for our clients.
