The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous, as equipment – and people – are getting instrumented. A phenomenon akin to Moore’s Law – where the capacity and reach of bandwidth is expanding as costs are dropping, with similar trends impacting the cost and capability of digital sensors – has fueled the explosion of IoT.

More than just a curious trend, enterprises have a huge stake in harnessing IoT, as it could provide greater visibility into the operations and challenges that they already face: operating supply chains; smart grids; improving operational efficiency; predicting and preventing machine failure; detecting and preventing intrusions; and so on. The challenge for enterprises is how to make sense of this data before it overwhelms them.
