|The Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a massive impact on business. It offers organizations the opportunity to transform how they operate, and gives both new entrants and established players the ability to innovate and disrupt.
The Internet of Things refers to machine-to-machine (M2M) technology enabled by secure network connectivity and cloud infrastructure, to reliably transform data into useful information for people, businesses, and institutions.
The ecosystem required to build an IoT solution can be complex. While the technologies involved are established, there’s still a lot of work to be done in agreeing and ratifying standards. They are seeing more “off the shelf” solutions and building blocks emerging, but a high degree of customization is common. Selecting the right providers, partners, and technologies is critical to achieving reliability, performance, coverage, and interoperability.
