Analysis: Unlocking the Potential of IoT for Brazil Small and Medium Businesses

The impact of IoT adoption for SMEs

Small and medium-sized manufacturing companies in Brazil will benefit from the collaboration between the Forum’s Platform for Shaping the Future of Urban Transformation and the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) Brazil, as the two organizations work to remove barriers to the adoption of the internet of things (IoT).

The C4IR Brazil, together with the Ministry of Economy, the Government of the State of São Paulo and other partners, has developed a Protocol for Action for policy-makers, which enables them to support small manufacturing companies to adopt smart technologies. Sensors and devices that simplify, speed up and automate the way these companies work will bring them in line with larger firms and ensure they remain profitable and prepared for technological advancement.
