IBM has been applying its expertise in ICT consulting and data analytics to a wide variety of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) projects, which it groups under its 'Smarter Planet' initiative. This profile provides a comprehensive overview of IBM's business and strategy in the IoT and M2M market, focusing on key verticals, partnerships and solutions.

IBM is a large ICT, consultancy and outsourcing firm, reflected in a market capitalisation of around USD200 billion (October 2013), which offers the market a diverse range of products and solutions.
IBM has had to consistently evolve and change its business practices and focus to remain competitive in the ICT environment. The company has been establishing itself in the Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M sector since as early as 1998, when it began applying its expertise to a wide variety of projects that it later grouped under its ?Smarter Planet‘ initiative. Smarter Planet brings together its Smarter Transportation, Smarter Commerce, and Smarter Cities initiatives, among others. These ICT solution segments are not exclusively centred on IoT and M2M technologies, but they incorporate IoT and M2M solutions as component parts in ambitious and wide-reaching projects. IBM predicts that Smarter Planet solutions will generate USD10 billion in revenue by 2015,1 and consequently, identified it as one of ?the most promising business and societal opportunities of our era.
