However, adoption of IoT has been uneven at best. A new report published by Dresner Advisory Services finds only 32 percent of respondents are making investments in IoT today. The good news is the survey finds another 48 percent plan to make investments over the course of the next two years. At a recent Ingram Micro ONE 2018 conference, Eric Hembree, director of IoT U.S. for Ingram Micro, noted that only about two percent of IoT projects have made it beyond the proof of concept (PoC) stage. It’s clearly going to be a while before there is a critical mass of organizations that have moved IoT projects into production. But managed service providers (MSPs) should be planning today for spectrum of services opportunities that will emerge as more devices are connected to the Internet over the next three plus years.
