Internet of Everything: A $4.6 Trillion Public-Sector Opportunity
Source: Cisco Systems, Inc.
From Executive Summary:
The Internet of Everything — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — is opening up new opportunities (and risks) that public-sector leaders need to consider from multiple perspectives: policy leadership, services provision, and regulation.
Cisco’s analysis indicates that IoE is poised to generate $4.6 trillion in Value at Stake for the public sector over the next decade (compared with $14.4 trillion for the private sector over the same period).
The $4.6 trillion in public sector Value at Stake will result from IoE’s ability to help public-sector organizations manage assets, optimize performance, and create new business models.
70 percent of the public sector’s IoE Value at Stake will come from agency- specific implementations, while 30 percent will derive from cross-agency adoption of IoE.
• The five primary drivers of IoE Value at Stake for the public sector are: 1) employee productivity, 2) connected militarized defense, 3) cost reduction, 4) citizen experience, and 5) increased revenue.
• More than two-thirds of IoE’s Value at Stake for the public sector (69 percent) will be powered by citizen-centric connections (person-to-person, machine- to-person/person-to-machine).
