  • 8. Why IT strategies fall short Many dimensions. First among them, IT is framed almost entirely as a productivity tool aimed at GAAP income statements, balance sheets and their impact on financial investors, and little else. On the contrary, IoT speaks to a much broader canvas of opportunities. Why mobile strategies fall short Many dimensions. Two above all others. (1) The handset market has ever-more uniform requirements versus the IoT market with its massive fragmentation (2) Handsets are attended devices optimized for humans to consume information versus IoT devices which are first designed to create intelligence. Why social strategies fall short Many dimensions. Too numerous to list. (1) Freemium, where people trade time and give away both financial and data treasure. (2) Social service providers serve one master above all others: Marketing and advertising clients, NOT service users. (3) Social strategies are focused on capturing people’s time, IoT is focused on freeing it. IoT requires unique strategies Reactions to status quo, demands of a new future
  • 9. 5 Key Questions to Get Started IoT markets demand new thinking about data, value 1. What physical assets, inventories, areas of operation are we talking about? Start with important questions: What value does connectivity create or enable? 2. What data are we talking about? Persistent reduction in the cost of sensors and communications open up new options for creating more data. Our best thinking must differentiate what we should collect from what we can. 3. Who owns what data? Most IoT business models will not be freemium, so the service creators will not be the presumptive owners of the data. Deployers and paying subscribers increasingly demand ownership and control. 4. Which stakeholders have access rights to what data? Most, but not all, IoT solutions will serve multiple stakeholders, for at least one ‘typical generation’. Who ‘owns’ or controls, and is responsible for, what data? 5. What are access rights holders authorized to do with the data? Complicating these markets further, access rights will not be uniform. It is likely that access rights holders will have different rules for internal versus external data sharing and deployment.
