IOTM Lifecycle

We believe there’s more to help you succeed than empty management frameworks and fail-forward startup ideas

IOTM includes downloadable tools and services to move your IoT projects forward

IoT Competence Model

The 'IoT Competence Model' helps you understand the traits of an organisation examining three key variables of creative, technical and business ability.

By identifying strengths, weaknesses, key experiences and valuable resources it's easier to identify the right blend of tools, strategies and market opportunities to move forward.
