IoT Global Awards 2019: recognizing excellence in IoT innovation

Until midnight (GMT), Wednesday 11th September 2019, you can enter your IoT use cases or projects for the IoT Global Awards 2019.

The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem of vendors, integrators, start-ups and innovative organizations with IoT-enabled solutions has considerably grown in the past few years with organizations across virtually all industries adopting IoT for their digital transformation efforts.

IoT deployments have been steadily growing with an increasing maturity of solutions, even if there are still challenges, the market has ample room to grow and many analysts predict that a lot of new IoT solutions in five years from now will come from companies that don’t even exist yet, to quote from a recent interview.

Even more reason to recognize those organizations and professionals that are making a difference with innovative projects and solutions. And that’s precisely what the IoT Global Awards aim to do by recognizing industry excellence in IoT innovation.
