The Internet of Things (IoT) and the resulting Big Data derived from these "things" is expected to produce measurable business outcomes in the trillions of dollars. IoT is already proving itself to produce new revenue growth, operational efficiency, and increased customer satisfaction.

Beyond the numbers, IoT changes how "things" work. IoT architecture depends upon solid systems engineering principles to handle its unique scale, safety, reliability, security and privacy requirements. Security remains a roadblock to its widespread adoption.
