This IDC study is the second of a three-part IDC PlanScape series that defines the CIO's multifaceted role in IoT in the context of IDC's Leading in 3D model. It is intended for CIOs who are contemplating or just beginning IoT exploration. It focuses on the role of CIOs and IT organizations in helping their organizations integrate new IoT products and services into the fabric of the business. The study is intended to help CIOs and IT executives identify the why, what, how, and who of helping integrate IoT solutions for enterprise, B2B, and B2C applications into the enterprise fabric of people, processes, and systems.This study is concerned with Leading in 3D, Transformative Technology, and Leadership Transformation.Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network, says, "The integration stage of IoT initiatives both challenges and demands the direct involvement of CIOs to minimize risks while maximizing the return on effort and investment. The very nature of IoT solutions, whether enterprise or customer facing, will be difficult if not impossible to fully leverage without the CIO."
