Look at in-market solutions and wait for enterprise solutions to catch up
Great point. I think we were so used to waiting for enterprise solutions from big vendors for just about everything, probably because many organizations were bloated with ERP systems and other large installs that demanded specific compatibility.
With cloud and the movement towards trying more niche solutions, it's nice to see more backing for the idea of trying some of these newer solutions out, and then if one of those big vendors later comes with an option for similar functionality, then you could re-evaluate and decide whether to stick with the in-house solution, or change over to a new one.
IoT is a relatively new area of tech, so we will see lots of really cool solutions from relatively unknown vendors until mass adoption and integration occurs. The question is really, can organizations see the value in trying to start down the road with a solution and understand that things may change, or will they just wait until larger players in other tech areas catch up.
