ABSTRACT: From fitness trackers to smartwatches, wearable computing has made a splash with consumers. But most enterprises have yet to venture into the market. PwC found that just 3 percent of companies were investing in wearable technology in 2015–down from 6 percent in 2014. "Limited success stories and the risk of failed or ineffective implementations are causing CIOs to proceed with cautious and careful optimism," says Mark Benson, CTO of Exosite, which develops software to help companies visualize Internet of Things data.
