IoT: Top 7 Challenges

  • IoT: Top 7 Challenges-

    IoT Visibility

    A lot of what happens in IoT infrastructure will be handled by automation, but there is still a strong need for human operators to maintain extensive visibility into systems and architectures. This can be difficult when you don’t actually own the platforms that host your services, but new data- and application-centric tools are making it easier to at least determine how and why key functions behave the way they do. And naturally, the time to build visibility into your infrastructure is before you deploy it, not after.

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.
