What You Think About the Internet of Things Needs a Rethink

Sensor and other IoT Data Are Useless without Scale, Context and Complex Analytics

Do you know what the Internet of Things (IoT) really means for your company, and the best IoT applications to harness all that data for the good of your business?

The buzz about the IoT disruption and transformation can certainly sound like hype. And for companies lacking a clear business case and specific plans for sensor data and device data, the IoT will be more talk than action. Because when devices are talking and won’t shut up, Big Data threatens to deluge IT and analytics groups.

Businesses that design and integrate the right data architectures, establish robust IoT data analytics platforms, and form the right teams will find that the IoT is not the next big thing, but a now big thing.


What is the internet of things (IoT)?
What is the analytics of things (AoT)?

Understanding the meaning of IoT is the first step to figuring out how it can change your business for the better – and the required technology components you need, from initial proofs of concepts all the way to enterprise-grade IoT platforms, to make it happen.

AoT is the analytics that happens on top of raw data streams. This provides context and data insights companies can use to act on data insights instead of simply marveling at data volume.
