M2M 'as a service' simplifies path to the connected world.

Ubiquitous 4G LTE wireless service and the availability of machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions "as a service" – on demand, over the Internet and ready to use – coupled with strong security will overcome the issues that have previously prevented many organizations from fully embracing M2M. By leveraging third-party expertise, organizations will be able to quickly transform the conversations of intelligent endpoints into unprecedented insights – and unprecedented business opportunities. As M2M adoption accelerates, manufacturers, dealers and business partners will be able to realize the full potential of new revenue streams and increased operational efficiencies, while better meeting the needs of their customers.

Enterprise users will gain unprecedented control over their technology environment in 2014, according to Verizon Enterprise Solutions' list of top enterprise technology trends for 2014.

"We are experiencing the democratization of enterprise technology," said David Small, Verizon Enterprise Solutions' chief platform officer. "Mirroring what has happened in the consumer technology space, enterprise technology users look for services to be delivered on demand, to a time and place of their choosing, and in the way that they want. In 2014, enterprise success will be measured by how well organizations are able to use technology to meet user expectations and harness individual innovation."
