2024 Telenor IoT Predictions Report identifies AIoT as Key Driver for Digital Transformation

Telenor IoT publishes its annual IoT Predictions Report for 2024. The report explores how the strategic integration of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things is reshaping industries, and how it will become a necessity for companies to stay competitive in today’s digital world.

On January 19, 2024, Telenor IoT, a leading brand in IoT Connectivity, publishes its annual IoT Predictions Report. Produced for decision-makers and professionals curious about the trends influencing industries and society, each IoT Predictions report provides valuable insights on the future of IoT.

The new report, co-produced with Omdia, is titled “Navigating the Perfect Storm: AIoT to Emerge as the Defining Enabler of Digital Transformation.” It explains how combining Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), also known as AIoT or AI4IoT, is necessary for companies to stay competitive in today’s digital world.

As IoT applications generate a tremendous quantity of data, many enterprises struggle to effectively analyze and extract meaningful insights from it. Simply collecting data does not bring value, and human intelligence can’t process the information as efficiently as AI. With the support of AI, applications become smarter and more autonomous.

This convergence unlocks higher operational efficiencies, better customer experience, and higher productivity gains across diverse sectors, from automotive and industrial manufacturing to transport, utilities, and smart cities. This combination can turn simple solutions into those with greater impact and value. Predictive maintenance, robotics improvement, and enhanced in-car experiences are examples of great use cases for AIoT.

“We predict AIoT will grow to become the cornerstone of digital transformation,” says Mats Lundquist, CEO at Telenor Connexion and Head of Telenor IoT. “The convergence of AI and IoT isn’t just an evolution; it’s a revolution in how businesses operate and compete globally. This report emphasizes the urgency to act now.”

This report serves as a compass for businesses navigating the ever-evolving digital ecosystem, providing actionable insights into the transformative potential of AIoT.

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors. As a dedicated student, I've already earned a degree in Classic Cantos, a testament to my appreciation for the timeless beauty of classical music. Beyond the classroom, my artistic spirit thrives through my love for painting and drawing. These creative outlets allow me to express my thoughts and emotions, transforming blank canvases into vibrant stories. My interests go far beyond music and art. Singing, playing the piano, and exploring new melodies are integral parts of my life, providing me with both solace and exhilaration. When I'm not immersed in the world of art and music, I find solace in nature's embrace. My heart is drawn to animals and the serene beauty of the natural world, fueling my desire to protect and preserve our precious environment.
