The Internet of Things will be more prevalent than ever this year as future-gazing gives way to real implementations, says Tom Loozen, managing director, global communications industry at Accenture.  And this will change the way businesses operate – with the likes of intelligent pipelines deployed in utilities, and industrial equipment sharing performance data.

“For consumers, in particular, navigating through the digital ecosystem can be challenging, which we believe can create opportunities for communications services providers to help consumers find their way through the ecosystem by enabling intelligent devices to work together effectively,” Loozen says. “Pioneering companies are tapping into a broad array of other digital businesses, digital customers and even devices to create new digital ecosystems.”
