Internet of Things – Monetization Opportunities for B2Bs By Sean Kirk When it comes to monetizing the Internet of Things, it can appear that consumer scenarios are where all the action is. Connected cars, homes, kitchen appliances, connected clothing — connected wrists. If you’re a B2B company, you may be feeling left out of the party. Fear not. Your RSVP is waiting. In fact, the market potential for IoT may be as large for B2B companies as for B2C, if not larger.
