Recent years have witnessed a huge upsurge of interest in internet of things (IoT) throughout the world. This shift has led to the emergence of new challenges associated with this novel paradigm. They all need to be addressed properly by experts and scholars in the field. In this paper, an integrated approach using fuzzy analytic network process (FANP) was applied to carry out the following tasks: first, to identify the most important IoT technology development challenges in Iran and secondly, to prioritize the aforementioned factors. The implemented approach took into account that technological factors, privacy and security issues, business related factors, legal and regulatory challenges, and cultural elements are the main factors which have an impact on IoT technology development. Besides, it was also taken into consideration that several correlations among the aforementioned classes exist. The results indicate that “technological” and “privacy and security” challenges are the most significant factors which affect IoT. Furthermore, “business model”, “architecture and design” and “education and training” were ranked as the most considerable sub-factors respectively.
In recent years, the Internet of Things has been of prime interest to policy-makers and business owners as an emerging technology. Iran, as a transition economy from factor-driven to efficiencydriven economy, has shown increasing interest in IoT and has carried out some efforts in ITRC. This article categorized the Internet of Things technology development challenges in Iran into five categories, namely security and privacy challenges, legal and regulatory challenges, technological challenges, cultural challenges and business challenges which include 24 sub-factors. In the second phase, the importance and priority of these factors and sub-factors were identified using an integrated fuzzy ANP approach. According to experimental results, “technological challenges” and “privacy and security challenges” were ranked the two most important factors. Besides, the factors “cultural challenges” was ranked as the least significant factor. Among the sub-factors, however, the most important sub-factor which affects IoT technology development is “business model”. The sub-factors “architecture and design” and “education and training” are ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively. On the other hand, “conflict of interests” and “liability” were selected as the least important ones. Considering the results of this study, a series of suggestions are presented for future studies and practices. Considering the great importance of business models, it is suggested that new business models be analyzed by utilizing state of the art strategic frameworks. Saleability and reliability are at the heart of designing and implementing such business models. It is also essential not to neglect the basic dimensions, such as customers and ecosystem, in IoT business models.
