Japan Internet of Things-Purpose Cognitive and Artificial Intelligence Trends 2016
This IDC study focuses on two technologies — Internet of Things (IoT) and cognitive systems — and summarizes examples of specific use cases of the respective technologies. It also provides an observation of the values created in the future through the combination of both IoT and cognitive systems, and recommendations for IT vendors and companies.Yuta Torisu, market analyst of Communications, IDC Japan, says that "IT vendors should enhance the data sensing and processing platform through IoT by 'maximizing collectable data' in companies. In addition, they should also propose solutions that include the combination of various data, including non-IoT that spans across industry segments. It is also important to take advantage of cognitive systems and analytics technologies by 'maximizing effective data' and fully utilize IoT and non-IoT data.In order to promote digital business innovation, it is important for user companies to cultivate an 'agile' mindset; for example, as it is very difficult to determine the ROI before implementing and operating IoT and cognitive systems, it is necessary for companies to have a concept of determining the ROI during the process of using IoT and cognitive systems in actual situations. It is essential to have a concept of repeating a trial-and-error process for creating ideas for new business models and coming up with measures for information security, and filling up requirements in stages. The management level of a company should take the lead to cultivate such agile mindsets and through strong leadership with such mindsets, it is vital to spread these concepts as a corporate culture.IDC Opinion Methodology Definition Essential Guidance Synopsis
