If you thought BYOD was a pain the neck for IT management, strap yourself in.
The integration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in the enterprise is moving beyond the hype into a much more pragmatic and operational phase of planning, execution and service delivery.
There’s massive interest and buzz around IoT within companies of every type. This is largely due to the transformative business impact IoT will have. Major business will be transformed, disrupted or out completely when IoT is properly used in the business transformation process.
But with IoT solutions comes new demands and a wide range of technologies, many of which will take the enterprise into unfamiliar territory, requiring different analytical skills and management tools. In other words, IoT devices quickly finding their way into to the enterprise will make life a living hell for network managers – far beyond the problems they experienced with BYOD.
