Re: It also needs to fit with processes and Enterprise Architecture
@Pieterv682: What you're basically saying is that it's not just HOW we gather all this information, but WHAT we do with it that is really going to be the driver for IoT...and in that sense it's a technology that's also in search of a business model or, if you'll forgive the old-school phrase, a "killer app." Or, in this case, a killer ecosystem of apps might be more appropos.
in regards to your comment here: The architecture needs to be extended not just to the IoT devices, but to how it fits into the enterprise and its processes
I have a few questions for you and for all the folks in the community who are partitipating in this conversation:
--what do you see as the greatest obstacle to extending IoT data into the enterpriese & enterprise processes?
--what is the business model that would make investing in IoT worthwhile?
--Who in the organization needs to have a seat at the table in planning out how to design for IoT?
