14 Ways IoT Will Change Big Data And Business Forever

The Internet of Things (IoT) has gained momentum. Sensors are now small and cheap enough to embed in all kinds of devices, and more companies are leveraging the vast data generated. Here are some key drivers your company needs to remember as you jump into IoT.

Data Volumes Explode 
The organizations embracing IoT devices see exponential increases in the amount of available data. The deployment model has been to grab a sensor message and then communicate the message through an IPv6 protocol to a machine cloud. However, as the volume of data increases, that model may no longer be viable. 
'If I'm capturing the temperature readings [of assets or equipment] every second, most of those readings are inconsequential and I reduce the value of the payload of the data by sending it all,' said Don DeLoach, co-chair of the  ITA Midwest IoT Council, in an interview. 'One of the downsides of storing vast amounts of data is [the time to insights]. If each dataset is over a petabyte and I'm running complex queries, it might take five hours just to get my answer back. If I don't even know if I'm asking the right question, that's a big price to pay.'

It takes a village
So much potential within the IoT space. However, for most organizations to actually realize the true benefits, they are going to need help leveraging the best in class from each of the various infrastructure components. There needs to be seamlessness, which in my opinion could end up beiing the biggest challenge as people move from the slightly converged to truly digital to IoT spaces.
