The Internet of Things is expected to generate billions, if not trillions, of dollars in value over the next several years, and companies everywhere and in every field are determining how to make sure they are ready. This effort includes developing a business strategy that extracts maximum value from the massive amount of data the IoT will generate as well as having the proper technology in place to manage a large number of geographically distributed devices, keep up with the rapid influx of data, and avoid being left behind.
In Part 2 of our conversation with Director of CloudFirst Innovation and CTO of IBM’s Cloud Services Division Mac Devine, Mac discusses the must-have features and essential components of a functional Internet of Things system, and the challenges of managing an IoT system without them.
Mac is presenting a Webinar on Sept. 17, “The Perfect Storm of Data, Cloud, and the Internet of Things: How to Navigate the Challenges and Capitalize on the Opportunity.” Click here for more information and to register for the event.
