VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) (TSX:SW), the leading provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has entered into a joint business relationship with PwC Canada to help enterprises around the world develop and launch transformative IoT services and new business models.
The IoT is creating new service-oriented opportunities, driving organizations to modernize so they can capitalize on growing amounts of IoT data and provide an enhanced customer experience. According to PwC Canada’s 2017 Global Digital IQ® Survey, 73 percent of organizations are making substantial investments in the IoT.
The implementation of IoT solutions is very complex; many projects lack a clear definition of use case, face significant delays, go over budget or fail to launch all together. Together, Sierra Wireless and PWC Canada can advise enterprises on IoT transformation best practices and technologies, from articulating the value proposition and building the business case, through to implementation.
“Sierra Wireless has helped thousands of companies, large and small, to join the IoT,” said René Link, CMO & SVP Corporate Strategy, Sierra Wireless. “IoT transformation can be a very complex process, and the combined expertise of Sierra Wireless and PwC Canada will ensure the right technology and business insights drive successful IoT implementations.”
