Toshiba’s future IT landscape survey:
"One notable area of enterprise innovation is that of wearables which, while long-mooted, have yet to impact the professional world in earnest to date. A ripening of market conditions make this set to change in the coming months and years.
According to ABI Research, global wearable device shipments to the enterprise will reach 154 million by 2021 – a significant jump from approximately 34 million in 2016. Verticals leading the way in this area include healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing, according to the research company, and Industry 4.0 is certainly a major influence in this sphere as such companies seek to derive greater intelligence from the Internet of Things (IoT) and related data revolution.
This trend is notable in the anticipated adoption of smart glasses into the enterprise. 80 per cent of organisations are aware of such solutions, but only two per cent have already deployed one. This is set to accelerate rapidly over the next few years, with 89 per cent of engineering, 83 per cent of logistics, and 77 per cent of manufacturing businesses set to implement smart glasses within the next three years."
