Cisco has estimated that the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to generate about $19 trillion of value over the coming years. The staggering potential size-of-the-prize has certainly caught the attention of the world’s business community.

However, there is a catch – most organizations are yet to derive significant commercial value from IoT.

We have looked at why organizations are falling short in monetizing the IoT, and have tried to capture some initial observations on monetization models in what is still a very fast-developing marketplace.
