IoT Projects Expected to Deliver Payback in Less Than Three Years, Says New Fujitsu Survey

News facts:

    • Over half of business and IT leaders now expect return on investment for IoT projects within three years
    • Enterprises deploying IoT for a wide range of benefits including new revenue generation (45 percent), improving security and health, and enhancing safety (47 percent each)
    • Survey identifies room for improvement among IoT services and equipment suppliers, especially in better support and closer collaboration

According to a new Fujitsu survey1 published today, Internet of Things (IoT) technology has reached early mainstream, with business and IT leaders expecting tangible results in three years or less – signaling that the days of simply experimenting with IoT projects are now consigned to the past. Fujitsu commissioned IDG Connect to better understand how IoT technology is maturing in the enterprise, and to gauge industry expectations.

BlackBerry Empowers the Electronics Industry to Build IoT Devices Consumers Can Trust

CES 2019 – LAS VEGAS – January 7, 2019 – BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced it is scaling its BlackBerry Secure technology and licensing strategy to empower the electronics industry to rapidly bring-to-market safe and secure IoT devices. According to a recent survey commissioned by the company, approximately 80% of consumers in the U.S., U.K. and Canada do not trust their current Internet-connected devices to secure their data and privacy. Additionally, when asked about future purchases, respondents said they were more likely to choose a product or do business with a company that had a strong reputation for data security and privacy.

The company’s new BlackBerry Secure feature packs address this concern and buying preference by giving IoT device manufacturers the trusted software and proven framework to securely build smart products – from health trackers to Alexa-enabled speakers – without having to develop the technology and deep cybersecurity expertise internally.
