The IoT Imperative in Public Services: Government and Healthcare

To keep up with sweeping global economic and societal changes, public services organizations are undergoing significant technology-driven transformation. Aging populations, rapid urbanization, political instability, concerns about sustainability and resiliency, and changing worker and resident expectations are driving public services organizations to radically improve operations and service delivery. At the core of this transformation is the ability to collect and process vast amounts of data to help to improve outcomes and services. One way to generate this data is through the Internet of Things (IoT) — which IDC defines as a network of networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity. The IoT is a transformational technology that can reshape the public sector, enabling improved outcomes and new services such as remote patient monitoring, advanced traffic solutions and predictive policing.
