Just a few years ago there were roughly 15 billion devices connected to the IoT, or "Internet of Things". By 2020, that number is expected to grow to 30.7 billion - representing about $1.29 trillion across all markets.

This is allowing them to create and share valuable data every second of the day.

In this blog post, we’ll go into detail about the top three challenges you are most likely to face when beginning an IoT implementation - and how to address them in the most effective ways.
