The Internet of Things is all modern businesses talk about. The industry is expected to reach more than 20.4 billion connected units by 2020 (Gartner, 2017). This amounts for more than 60% of all applications in the world across almost every industry.
Businesses are investing in IoT to match not only the growing need for more data and smart solutions, but also the consumers’ interest. Companies are expected to increase their hardware budget by 35% and their connectivity budget by 22% by 2020 ensuring a certain return of investment (Forbes, 2017). Business Insider, for example, predicts a $13 trillion ROI by 2025, almost 10 times the investment cost companies have spent in the past several years.
