We did this because we recognised early on that IoT enables connecting the physical, biological and digital worlds together, helping our clients make better, faster decisions, automate processes, and enable the prediction of future events. Today, IoT is a core capability in our end-to-end digital innovation and transformation business.”
According to IDC, "KPMG pursues technology-enabled business transformation and deploys its IoT capability horizontally across its management and risk consulting offerings.”
