July 03, 2019 / ANASIA D'MELLO
In his regular new column on developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, Antony Savvas explores some evolving industry viewpoints on deployment and security.There has been, and there will continue to be a whole lot of industry discussion about how to manage the explosion (or should we say tsunami?) of devices that are forming the Internet of Things (IoT). Little wonder, because this particular explosion is barely controlled by the IT industry – so much of it is arriving ‘left field’ from other business sectors. Previous big, impactful explosions – personal computers, networks, smartphones, the cloud, etc. – have been created and driven by Information Technology. The industry was responsible for persuading people to buy these products and responsible for building and delivering them.
