Figure 5 Hyper-aware, predictive, agile

What does it mean to be IoE-ready? IoE-ready is characterised by three critical attributes:

  • hyper-awareness – sensors can capture real-time data on products
  • ability to predict – new types of data analysis tools allow an organisation to forecast future trends and behaviours
  • agility – increasingly accurate predictions allow organisations to be more responsive and flexible to emerging marketplace trends and threats.

Combining these three attributes allows organisations to better create, communicate, and deliver their offerings.
