5 Major IoT Challenges Executives Are Grappling With
Many Struggle With IoT Scalability
Scaling Internet of Things device networks remains a major issue for companies, with 46.39 percent of executives saying they can handle up to 1,000 devices while another 27.84 percent can only accommodate fewer than 100. Some companies have figured out the scaling issue, however, with 30.93 percent saying that they can manage 100,000 or more devices.
There are a few major challenges these companies face in scaling their IoT footprint: working with legacy devices and software (53.06 percent), the need for highly specialized and custom solutions (45.92 percent), and determining which departments are responsible for IoT-related gateways, networking equipment, analytics, sensors, and hardware and software (37.37 percent).
