Sooraj Shah: IoT held back by skills gap, say a third of execs

Almost a third of executives at large global enterprises believe that the Internet of Things (IoT) faces a major skills gap, and that this is preventing businesses from being able to exploit new capabilities.

That is the view from a new report by consultancy Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network, working in partnership with The CMO Council, a network for senior marketing decision-makers, thought leadership organization Penton’s IoT Institute, and The Nerdery, a digital strategy, software engineering and design company.

The study, The Impact of Connectedness on Competitiveness, was based on a global survey of 350 executives from large global enterprises such as Airbus, Balfour Beatty, Philips Lighting, GE, Whirlpool and Hitachi.
