Flexibility

IoT systems require flexible infrastructure, including use of cloud and other data center technologies. The network will support many endpoint devices with different features, operating systems and users, so it must be agile, secure, and scalable.

Security

According to an HP study, 70 percent of IoT devices surveyed had security vulnerabilities. The biggest challenge being how IoT brings older and more commonplace systems into the mix. From mobile devices to POS systems, everything must be scrutinized for risk. IoT age security is no longer a concern of IT. It is on the entire business.

Growth

People are the catalysts of growth. Thus change management is important, so be prepared to both educate employees on the benefits of new IoT-driven processes and educate them on how IoT technologies such as automation and data gathering can aid their tasks. ReadyNetworks can help with implementation and strategy that revolves around your internetwork.

By The Numbers

According to Intel, over 200 billion devices will be connected by 2020. IDC forecasts spending of 1.7 trillion by 2020 The growth is expected to be fueled by growth in devices connectivity solutions, and IT services. The “industrial internet” will add $10-$15 trillion to the global GDP. Industrial machinery will see the highest use with IoT.
