Eseye, experts in leading-edge global IoT connectivity solutions, has announced the launch of its new IoT Readiness Level (IRL) Index.
From smart cities to industrial automation, IoT is changing the way businesses operate and sell. But given the complexity of IoT, and in particular the connectivity component, many businesses struggle to assess the maturity of their project, their technical and operational readiness for deployment, and the best route to success. Surveys consistently find that 80 per cent of IoT projects do not reach successful deployment.
Eseye has created a framework that can help companies to embed and expand IoT technology in their operations. Eseye has codified this knowledge to create an assessment that covers all aspects of IoT adoption, from infrastructure and connectivity to device design and data management.
Nick Earle, CEO of Eseye said, "We recognised that every IoT use case is different, and many were struggling to successfully launch an IoT solution. This was due to particular challenges with their device and project as well as the lack of an objective standard in the sector. Our IRL Index leverages a set of detailed metrics to provide a customer rating on a 0 to 9 scale, offering an objective assessment of each organisation’s capabilities."
The IRL Index is based on the principles of NASA's Technology Readiness Level (TRL), considered the gold standard for measuring the maturity of new technologies. Applying this tool delivers each customer a personalised assessment showing them exactly where their IoT readiness is compared to market best practices and similar projects within their industry vertical.
Following an initial discovery workshop, the results of each assessment enable the creation of a custom services programme that aims to swiftly move the customer to a higher maturity level, ultimately allowing them to deliver against their project goals and anticipated return on investment.
In addition to the IoT Readiness Framework, Eseye has also introduced a new subscription-based service offering called IoT LaunchPad. LaunchPad includes a range of repeatable specialist IoT services tailored for each customer project, with the aim to lower the risk of failure, reduce costs and get IoT devices deployed faster.
Eseye's IRL Index is available now.
