We’re experiencing a revolution. The physical world is becoming connected through the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Appliances, lights, and devices that were once isolated are now able to connect at scale, enabling unprecedented automation, control, business value, and insights.

The complexity of designing, developing, and deploying an IoT Ecosystem is increasing, thus understanding best practices and avoiding common pitfalls is important. Great IoT Ecosystems capture real-time data to power automation, analytics, and machine learning to transform everyday workflows in compelling ways — from enhanced user experiences to improved safety and micromobility for Smart Cities.
