Gartner has highlighted the Top 10 Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies that “should be on every organisation’s radar” through the next two years, stating that the IoT demands an extensive range of new solutions and skills that “many businesses have yet to master”.
“The IoT demands an extensive range of new technologies and skills that many organisations have yet to master,” asserted Nick Jones, vice-president at Gartner. “A recurring theme in the IoT space is the immaturity of technologies and services and of the vendors providing them. Architecting for this immaturity and managing the risks it creates will be a key challenge for organisations exploiting the IoT. In many technology areas, it’s fair to say that a lack of skills will also pose significant challenges.”
The technologies and principles of the IoT will have a very broad impact on organisations, affecting business strategy, risk management and a wide range of technical areas such as architecture and network design.
