The IoT ecosystem has moved beyond concept to commercial reality. Once widely deployed, IoT has the potential to be one of the most disruptive technologies in decades, but are we ready for it? What are the opportunities and risks? Until recently, there has been little research into the potential of IoT for New Zealand’s economy. In 2017, The New Zealand IoT Alliance undertook a major research project and published The Internet of Things – Accelerating a Connected New Zealand. Following the report’s publication, the Executive Council identified key working groups.
