    IoT Real-Time Performance

    The speed of modern digital business all but requires that the IoT function, at least partially, in real time. Indeed, when it comes to applications like smart cars and smart cities, even a few microseconds of lag can mean the difference between life and death. But real-time performance isn’t just a matter of networking. It must be infused throughout the entire data chain, particularly when it comes to pulling the relatively finite, real-time-dependent data from the vast bulk of ordinary information flooding into analytics engines.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most complicated endeavor ever envisioned by man. More complicated than the pyramids, the microprocessor, even the moonshot. Small wonder, then, that it represents a unique set of challenges that, in these early stages of development at least, pose a real threat to its utility as an engine of economic growth. Fortunately, the problems encountered so far are solvable, although it will probably take some time to determine exactly how to handle them and what level of optimization is needed for the multiple IoT services that are certain to arise.

Here, then, are the seven leading challenges to a successful IoT deployment.
