“With the continued affordability of smartphones and growing acceptance of BYOD, more and more people are accessing corporate data through mobile devices,” said Anshul Gupta, principal research analyst at Gartner. “Indian enterprises are at an early stage of understanding the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies on their core business.”

Gupta said technology providers must realize that the skills required in digital business are rather different and not necessarily as low cost as they may seem. Providers must establish a long-term plan and strategy to bridge the gap in requisite skills and combat potential crisis.
