Why IoT Needs a Data Integration Strategy

One of the exciting areas of the IoT is its potential to change how we engage with technology and transact business. The move to IoT is providing unprecedented access to data that either didn’t exist before, or was too complicated and expensive to collect. While the Machine to Machine (M2M) era focused mainly on the challenges of connecting devices, the IoT era concentrates on the opportunities presented to businesses who use connected data.
