Internet of Things (IoT) Asia 2016. While Japan, China and South Korea have pioneered the adoption of IoT and machine to machine (M2M) technology in Asia, and even globally, South East Asia (ASEAN) arguably has the most potential for its application. Research in Asia has shown that there is a sense of urgency amongst IT leaders in the area to take advantage of what IoT has to offer. It is viewed as the second most disruptive technology to organizations in the region; 79 per cent said that they already have or are planning to implement ambient technology solutions. As a result, IoT was ranked 4th in terms of current CIO priorities (after Cloud, Mobility, Big Data) in the next three years.
Internet of Things – Asia IoT Business Platform
Asia IoT Business Platform brings together consumers, platform providers, policy makers and those actually putting all the pieces together in the market place. It is defining the future landscape of IoT. With focus on local telecommunication companies, public sectors and end users across verticals, Asia IoT Business Platform is the most comprehensive event in Southeast Asia for solution providers targeting enterprise adoption of IoT and M2M technologies. Within this broader region, Southeast Asia, also known as ASEAN, is poised to drive the rise and rise of IoT, driven by three key factors: urbanization (demand), technology and device proliferation (the delivery platform) and manufacturing growth (supply).
