Are you under threat from the head of the IoT?

Mark Samuels ponders what the latest job title du jour means for those currently tasked with their firm's digital strategy

The hype associated to such changes helps explain why some companies are appointing a head of the IoT. Market intelligence firm ABI Research, meanwhile, is already questioning how businesses will deal with the Internet of Everything, which represents the next evolutionary stage in the IoT.

Dr Mark Samuels is editor at advisory organisation CIO Connect. He examines the future role of the IT leader in this monthly column.
