The Internet of Things brings with it many challenges. While there's considerable hype about all the wonderful things organizations can do with the data, some organizations are struggling to meet their goals for IoT.
"ROI is the biggest challenge that many enterprises find troubling," said Arif Mustafa, director of CIO Advisory at global research firm Info-Tech Research Group. “The costs are definitely high. [In addition to] the sensors, you have to have a network infrastructure and integration because when you bring in IoT, not all of your sensors will be new. Some will be new, relying on modern protocols, but some of them are older, so when we look at the end-to-end deployment, the cost of these things adds up.”
