M2M and the Cloud: Business Proceed with Caution

Machine-to-Machine services are gaining momentum as an efficient way to collect and analyze data from wired and wireless systems across the enterprise. In a Computerworld Quick Pulse survey, more than half of respondents said cloud-based M2M storage would reduce the burden on IT staff and enable scalability thanks to the pay-as-you-go model. M2M services will benefit smart vending, fleet management, telemedicine, utilities and digital signage as businesses respond to customer needs, improve business processes and identify new business opportunities.
