Internet of Things

Billions of smart devices connected together, creating an intelligent, actionable environment – that's the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT).

We believe the IoT offers the opportunity to reimagine human lives, society and business structures. IoT enables greater control of the systems we rely on while creating a foundation for entirely new kinds of service.

In this paper (805 KB), Fujitsu’s Iain Groves focuses on how he sees the IoT developing and the key types of capability needed for successful delivery.


  • Connecting masses of intelligent devices together will create a new, smart environment that will change the way we live and work.
  • The IT industry must make sure it delivers a coherent, usable and flexible Internet of Things that meets the expectations being set.
  • Suppliers need to excel in the disciplines and technologies of security, network management and integration.
  • Collaboration is needed as well as competition to ensure a viable, cost effective and high quality Internet of Things.
