IS-2003-33: Think Smart, Think Connected White Paper
This Harbor Research White Paper (in conjunction with Spinnaker Venture Partners, LLC) highlights the findings of an Executive Summit on European Union adoption of Internet-enabled device networking/M2M to maintain a competitive advantage in an open, connected landscape. Devices from multiple companies will be interconnected via the Internet. Open systems for interconnection will lead to new business opportunities that will not accrue to companies with closed systems. Interconnection requires alliances among companies and a shift from a product-centric to a services-centric business model.
