How Is The Federal Government Using the Internet of Things?
There are many opportunities for federal agencies to use the Internet of Things to operate more efficiently and effectively, but few agencies are pursuing these opportunities. There are a number of challenges preventing greater adoption of the Internet of Things among federal agencies. These include a lack of leadership, skills, and funding, as well as cumbersome procurement policies and a risk-averse culture. Agency adoption of the Internet of Things will likely remain low unless important changes are made to encourage adoption across the federal government.
