For a business to tap into the potential of The Internet of Things is going to require some buy-in from those at the top.

Of course, a CEO or CMO has to see the benefits to their customers and business, which means they need to be somewhat up to speed on what IoT is all about.

If a new study of one group of business leaders is any indication of the IoT state of adoption, some have a ways to go.

It turns out that the majority of top execs in Canada are not even aware of The Internet of Things.

Jim Lein: What Does The Internet of Things Mean To You?

Oracle Profit magazine’s Five Ideas recently featured the perspective of five Oracle experts on The Internet of Things (IoT) which I found to be thought-provoking because I get asked to define IoT several times per week.
