Deployment plans of IoT solutions among large technology organisations in New Zealand

September 2016, % of respondents


The Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of real life things that are connected to the internet. The same way a laptop or mobile phone connects to the internet, other things - devices, objects, machines, animals or people - can be connected and interact with each other. These connected things collect and exchange data.


The minimum business size to qualify for this survey was 250 employees.
Survey respondents were screened to check that they:
- Were involved in IT or business decisions making at their organisation
- Had heard of the term ‘IoT’ before the survey
- Were at least ‘somewhat’ familiar with the concept of the IoT
