The Right Way to Successfully Deploy EoT
Internet of Things is proving extremely beneficial to enterprises. However, for a successful Enterprise of Things (EoT) deployment, enterprises need to understand their EoT requirements and then build an EoT strategy. IoT has been perceived as something that can enhance consumer experience and add comfort to their lifestyle. However, it can play a significant role in enterprises as well. According to a report, there will be 9.1 billion EoT devices in the market by the end of 2019.
Leveraging Internet of Things will make enterprises efficient, accurate, and development. This signifies that enterprises need to adopt new technologies and utilizing new techniques means making modifications to company structure ensuring high-level of privacy and even guarantee security. Companies must understand their Enterprise of things requirements, comprehend them, and find a suitable strategy to attain their set primary goals.

Classify Business Goals
Firstly, organizations must list down the problem statement that will help organizations with the reason for IoT adoption. Furthermore, the organization must list down the impact of the technology regarding enterprise growth and productivity.
Identify IoT-Less Devices
Once the business goals are listed down, the organization must determine the equipment that could be connected to the internet. According to the need, the company can buy the number of sensors, actuators, and cameras. Identification of this need will help enterprises achieve their business goals.
Once the EoT infrastructure is set, then the hardware will gather a vast amount of data. The sheer amount of data can overwhelm the company. Manual scanning of data may not provide desired results. Hence, data analytics tool, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence are mandatory for actionable insights.
Organizations harnessing IoT should design a strict security policy and governance model. The policy must focus on the access, control, and management of the data. Deploying Enterprise of Things is difficult, but with powerful resources and an effective strategy, the execution is plausible.
