IoT is revolutionizing everything from wearable devices to automobiles, home appliances to medicine, and is even being applied to industry and agriculture.
New applications of the technology are being imagined all the time—it offers the biggest product development opportunity in a generation.
No matter what your industry, you should be thinking about IoT.

Companies are aware that IoT product development is difficult, but most underestimate how difficult.
The development projects for even the simplest IoT products must integrate technical elements and effectively coordinate the activities of experts from many disciplines across multiple organizations.
There are also new challenges posed by system testing, security, maintenance, support, warranty, regulatory compliance, data governance, and user privacy—IoT development faces unique obstacles in all these areas.
No wonder the risks of delays, cost overruns, and overall failures are so great.
To help companies understand the complexity of IoT device development, we created the IoT technology stack diagram below. It shows IoT devices are made up of multiple technology layers including, the physical hardware device, IoT cloud platform, embedded software, network communication protocols, and security.
