“The pace of new technology becoming available is coming at organisations fast – and it’s only going to get quicker. IT leaders are under pressure to not only get up to speed on what new technology is best for the business but to also ramp it up into operations.In this data-driven age, innovation often means incorporating new technologies like blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning. Specifically for IoT, McKinsey estimates that IoT could generate $11.1 trillion a year in economic value by 2025. This is motivating IT and business leaders to explore the potential of implementing IoT solutions into their business.
To successfully develop and deploy an IoT application, it’s important to establish the right architecture. This is imperative to outline because IoT solutions merge the physical world of Operations Technology (OT) with sensors, actuators and communication devices, and the digital world of Information Technology (IT) with data, analytics, workflows, and applications.”
