Ze­bra Tech­nolo­gies study re­veals that the num­ber of “In­tel­li­gent” APAC En­ter­prise com­pa­nies are 10 per­cent more than 2017

Progressive Grocer (India) - - Market Update -

The re­search con­ducted by Ze­bra Tech­nolo­gies, over two months of time pe­riod, re­vealed that their was an in­crease in “In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise” Com­pa­nies. Com­pa­nies that scored more than 75 points on the over­all In­dex were de­fined as an “in­tel­li­gent en­ter­prise” which dou­bled to 10 per­cent in 2018. In Asia-pa­cific, there was a spike in the num­ber of com­pa­nies that were rated as truly “in­tel­li­gent” – mov­ing up from 20 per­cent to 22 per­cent this year. The av­er­age Asia-pa­cific score in­creased from 49 points in 2017 to 63 points in 2018, un­der­scor­ing the rapid adop­tion of In­ter­net of Things (IOT) so­lu­tions in the re­gion. The In­dex mea­sures to what ex­tent com­pa­nies to­day are meet­ing the cri­te­ria that de­fine to­day In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise. Over­all, the In­dex re­veals year-over-year growth of In­ter­net of Things (IOT) de­ploy­ment and in­vest­ment, high­light­ing new mo­men­tum as en­ter­prises ex­pect less re­sis­tance to adop­tion and in­creas­ingly ac­knowl­edge IOT so­lu­tions as a core com­po­nent for driv­ing fu­ture growth across their or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The on­line sur­vey was con­ducted from Aug. 6 - Sept. 14, 2018 across dif­fer­ent sec­tors, in­clud­ing health­care, man­u­fac­tur­ing, re­tail and trans­porta­tion and lo­gis­tics. In to­tal, 918 IT de­ci­sion mak­ers from nine coun­tries were in­ter­viewed, in­clud­ing the U.S., U.k./great Bri­tain, France, Ger­many, Mex­ico, Brazil, China, In­dia, and Ja­pan.

Eleven fac­tors that de­ter­mined a com­pany as an In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise were: IOT Vi­sion, Busi­ness En­gage­ment, Tech­nol­ogy Solution Part­ner, Adop­tion Plan, Change Man­age­ment Plan, Point of use Ap­pli­ca­tion, Se­cu­rity & Stan­dards, Life­time Plan, Ar­chi­tec­ture/ In­fra­struc­ture, Data Plan and In­tel­li­gent Anal­y­sis. These cri­te­ria were iden­ti­fied by ex­ec­u­tives, in­dus­try ex­perts and pol­i­cy­mak­ers from dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries at the 2016 Strate­gic In­no­va­tion Sym­po­sium, The In­tel­li­gent En­ter­prise was hosted by Ze­bra in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Tech­nol­ogy and En­trepreneur­ship Cen­ter at Har­vard (TECH).

Key Find­ings were:

• IOT in­vest­ments are boost­ing, and re­sis­tance to adop­tion is at a low.

• 91% ex­pect that the num­bers will in­crease in the com­ing years

• 48% are of the opin­ion that their IOT in­vest­ments are go­ing to in­crease by 11-20%.

• 69% have vi­sion­ary ap­proach for IOT and are ex­e­cut­ing IOT plans

• 32 % of the re­spon­dents pro­vide in­sights to the front-line work­ers of their com­pa­nies. In Asia-pa­cific, this stands at 41 per­cent and has in­creased by 7% from last year’s in­dex.

• 52 per­cent of re­spon­dents glob­ally say in­for­ma­tion from their IOT so­lu­tions is shared with em­ploy­ees in real or near-real time. Real-time an­a­lyt­ics (66 per­cent) and se­cu­rity (63 per­cent) were re­ported as the most preva­lent el­e­ments of a com­pany’s data man­age­ment plan.

Se­cu­rity is a top pri­or­ity across the en­ter­prises. The In­dex re­vealed an 18 per­cent­age in­crease in the num­ber of com­pa­nies that are con­stantly –mon­i­tor­ing their IOT se­cu­rity to en­sure pri­vacy and in­tegrity. In Asia-pa­cific, it has in­creased by 20% as com­pared to last year.

On the ba­sis of data de­rived from the sur­vey and the con­stant need of tech­nol­ogy that adapts to IOT, Ze­bra has launched its new tech­nol­ogy called Ze­bra Savanna. This tech­nol­ogy plat­form ag­gre­gates and an­a­lyzes raw edge data from de­vices to de­liver real-time in­sight. In­te­grates into cur­rent in­fra­struc­ture, lever­ag­ing ex­ist­ing hard­ware, soft­ware sys­tems of record and data ecosys­tems to cre­ate a holis­tic en­ter­prise per­spec­tive, mak­ing busi­nesses smarter and more prof­itable.
