When it comes to harnessing the potential of the Internet of Things to drive government efficiency and improve service delivery, it’s still early days for federal agencies. This is both a challenge, but also an incredible opportunity. Because many federal agencies have expansive, complex and often "legacy" assets to manage, monitoring and maintenance can be costly and ineffective. Connected devices and sensors—combined with Predictive Asset Maintenance and Smart Asset Monitoring—can quickly change the dynamics, yielding measurable and lasting results. Sensors, the data they generate, and analytics offer a more complete, informed and effective real-time assessment for agency IT leaders. Proven, long-term ROI includes reducing asset downtime, lowering operating costs, increasing efficiency and accuracy, and improving security and safety. Agency leaders who act now to strategically implement digital initiatives that include IoT-enabled sensors and devices will not only improve bottom-line results, but enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of citizen service delivery.
