Explore IoT opportunities before it hits the mainstream

As for organisations considering IoT adoption, Hung advised them to examine more advanced industries for ideas—for instance: smart grid, smart city, and industrial automation.

"Purchase a few of the many IoT development boards like mBed, Arduino and experiment with use cases will also help," he said. Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform for anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments while the mbed development platform is for creating devices based on ARM microcontrollers.

For a more thorough investigation of opportunities, organizations should take their top three product lines and top three core processes, and systematically explore the opportunities that arise out of connecting these via IoT, suggested the Gartner research VP.
