As millennials move into business decision-making roles over the next three years, they will push for faster deployments of real-time, sensor-driven applications, according to IDC’s FutureScape report, “Worldwide Internet of Things 2016 Predictions.”

As millennials move into influential business roles, around 2017, they will expect a business world “where connectivity is integrated, access to information is immediate, and monitoring of activities is real time. This lays the foundation to accelerate IoT adoption.”

For IT departments, this means a shift towards warp-speed and agile development processes. “IT departments are going to have adjust policies and processes to accommodate this fast-moving demographic,” the IDC report says.
