Quocirca has published its latest Executive Briefing, Mastering the IoT: the big data opportunity for print manufacturers, a comprehensive analysis of the impact and potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data for the print sector.
The briefing looks at the evolution of the open, data-driven platform economy and the importance of collaboration with third-party data partners to offer services that go beyond the conventional print environment. It also explores the role and capabilities of intelligent MFPs in data generation and analysis as part of the IoT and looks at how cloud and AI will influence the future of the industry.
Research Director Louella Fernandes said: “The vast quantity and diversity of big data sources available mean that vendors must widen their horizons and look beyond the immediate print industry to build cross-sector partnerships that draw intelligence from disparate sources. This will enable them to deliver the intelligent services that customers are looking for.”
