Over the past few years, the adoption of sensor networking technology — known colloquially as the "Internet of Things" or IoT — has grown tremendously. According to Gartner research, 29 percent of major organizations currently use IoT technology—an additional 35 percent plan to implement it within the next 12 months or soon after.
This exploding market spells unique opportunities for server application developers and network security firms. Additionally, companies already developing networked software products will be increasingly expected to implement IoT-enabled features and builds that optimize performance in IoT server environments.
Navigating this new market will present challenges to unprepared developers. They must either learn through hard mistakes or find a value-added integration partner who can reduce their risk while offering the efficiencies of scale and experience.
Internet of Things - The Challenges and Opportunities
To help introduce the potential challenges of IoT integration and the benefits of finding an integration partner, we have created the following helpful infographic. It highlights key takeaways from our new White Paper, "Plugging into the Internet of Things: How Independent Software Vendors Can Anticipate and Overcome Key IoT Challenges."
Look at the infographic below to learn why IoT is a fantastic opportunity for ISVs and consumers to have better, more connected experiences. We cover how IoT has been evolving in recent years and the most common hurdles standing in the way of success.
