The Internet of Things (IoT) has transformed businesses over the past decade. It has enabled a step change in automation, efficiency, and new business development. Theoretically, by 2025, IoT could have an economic impact of up to $12.6 trillion, according to McKinsey. Yet major constraints still remain, especially for those organisations feeling hindered by inconsistent network availability or wanting to use IoT for traceability across wide geographic areas.
The world is currently fixated on the development and potential application of technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Process Automation and Large Language Models (LLMs).

Organisations are embracing the potential of these technologies, incorporating them into their operations and expanding their capabilities.
