This short survey on "IoT applications value creation for instrumentation customers and industry" is raising general questions to people in instrumentation world, especially on the IoT industry applications, their status, expectations, concerns and experience to date. 

In the recent past we see and read that billions of devices are connected using Internet of Things concept, however I see that instrumentation industry is not embracing the technology as much as consumer electronics manufacturers. My aim is to understand instrumentation companies awareness and vision on embracing IoT and connectivity in their sector. I request participants to provide answers to the below questions and help with my project.

The survey results will be used for my MBA dissertation and the final results will be shared with people that answered the survey. All respondents identities will be kept anonymous and no confidential data will be shared with anyone. Even the submission of my final report will be made under confidentiality regulations of Warwick Business School.

From an industry point of view VALUE CREATION from IoT applications and sustainability are essential. How these problems will be addressed and solved will influence the use of IoT technologies in instrumentation industry, on a larger scale, in the coming years. 

Thank you for participating and for willing to share your opinions and experience regarding IoT applications and thank you also for your time.
