To keep up with sweeping global economic and societal changes, public services organizations are undergoing significant technology-driven transformation. Aging populations, rapid urbanization, political instability, concerns about sustainability and resiliency, and changing worker and resident expectations are driving public services organizations to radically improve operations and service delivery. At the core of this transformation is the ability to collect and process vast amounts of data to help to improve outcomes and services. One way to generate this data is through the Internet of Things (IoT) — which IDC defines as a network of networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity. The IoT is a transformational technology that can reshape the public sector, enabling improved outcomes and new services such as remote patient monitoring, advanced traffic solutions and predictive policing.

Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
