Internet of Business (IoB) is the new analyst on the block. We take a vertical approach to covering how the Internet of Things, robotics, AI, machine learning, sensors, blockchain, analytics, virtual and augmented reality, 5G, and a range of other technologies are transforming connected business and making organisations of every size more efficient, productive, and profitable.
Our readership spans the globe, including large user bases in North America, the UK, and Europe. Our visitors are strategists and decision makers, with over 50 percent of our newsletter subscribers at director level and above.
IoB’s portfolio of vertically-focused business events across the UK, the US, and Europe attract senior decision makers and business leaders, and include Internet of Manufacturing, Internet of Supply Chain, and Internet of Energy.
Since February 2018, IoB’s expanding team of experienced journalists, analysts, and commentators has been led by editor Chris Middleton, one of the UK’s leading business and technology writers, as well as an author, public speaker, and an acknowledged robotics expert (and robot owner) who has appeared on BBC TV and radio, ITN, and Talk Radio.
Chris is former editor of Computing, Computer Business Review, Professional Outsourcing, UCInsight, Strategist magazine, and more, and is a contributing editor to Diginomica, Computing, and Hack & Craft News.

Under his leadership, IoB is refocusing on independent analysis, thought-leadership, and insight, offering a strategic angle on every story – such as the new ‘Internet of Business says…’ feature that rounds off each article.
Chris’ regular team now includes: Malek Murison; Jessica Twentyman (Financial Times, Economist Intelligence Unit); Joanna Goodman (Guardian); Kate O’Flaherty (Guardian, Times, Economist, Inquirer); Mark Samuels (Computing, Computer Weekly, Register, Times); Adrian Bridgwater (Forbes, Computer Weekly, The Register); Sooraj Shah (Computing, New Statesman Tech); Rene Millman (Cloud Pro); Nic Fearn (TechRadar); and Sandra Vogel (ZDNet), and is expanding to include a diverse range of new voices, such as Kayla Matthews, Nik Rawlinson, and transformation expert Sean Culey.
