The ‘things’ in Internet of Things –the devices connected to the internet- have already outgrown the number of people on this planet. The number of connections between people and things and things and things is rising exponentially. New data communication technologies, such as LoRa, UWA and SigVox, allow for new opportunities for organizations to improve their products and services.
However, IoT is more than just connecting things. The success of solutions depends greatly on the business case. There is no one-size-fits-all for a successful IoT implementations. This means organizations have to know the details of the solution they are looking for. This is not just a question of inspiration, but of being challenged as well.
IoT projects can be started regardless of the way the business handles projects. While Internet of Things is ideally included in the research phase of a project, it is no problem to incorporate it once the deliverables, time lines and resourcing are already declared.
