Brazilian Government's IoT Study Releases First Results

A recent report, titled "Internet of Things: An Action Plan for Brazil," cites five lessons from the project.
By Edson Perin

Lesson 1: State Involvement Can Be Summarized in Three Models
• Active role in the IoT: Governments actively participate in the development of the IoT sector through investments, selection of priority areas, creation of associations and alliances, regulatory initiatives and international partnerships. The actions are usually consolidated in a national plan.

• Ecosystem formation: Governments focus on creating a supportive environment by bringing together and coordinating businesses, development agencies, startups and universities. The State's direct investments in the IoT tend to be more limited compared to those of countries that take an active role.

• Policymaker and investor in focus areas: Governments are dedicated to establishing specific guidelines, investing in selected areas, disseminating best practices, and making competitiveness and opening markets possible.

Lesson 2: Governance Stimulates the Formation of an Adequate Environment
• Structured model with specific associations or IoT alliances formed by the public and private sectors: Most countries in which the State plays an active role have adopted robust models of governance, such as associations, alliances or consortiums bringing together the public and private sectors, formed by executive councils and advisory bodies, as well as working groups or thematic committees.

• Ecosystem formation: There are countries that have a leading position in the IoT despite adopting more decentralized models, as they already have an innovative ecosystem, such as incubators and the university consortium in the United Kingdom, or coordination actions focused on selected verticals in the United States.
