Re: Quid pro quo
I agree. One of the other key things is that we are still really in the early stages of IoT design and thus the infrastructure behind these devices are still in a way disconnected across platforms, unless you are using devices that share a common platform such as in home automation. For me, do I really want to spend all this money to automate and then say in a year or 2 we get more developed platforms with integrated security and better analytics, which would make me want to go ahead and rip everything out and replace it to speak to a larger ecosystem. That's the question. IoT is great for simple things, simple connected devices that have a single purpose, but to buy into the whole ecosystem, I think we are still a little early and many are probably waiting to see where the market goes now that the big players are starting to look at standardization and more secure data platforms to support next generation devices.
