The interconnected environment: hype vs. reality

While the Internet of Things will bring new layers of complexity and infrastructure requirements to the corporate network, the fundamentals of best-practice IT remain the same.

In 1962, the Jetsons’ creators imagined a world 100 years in the future, where people traveled in aerocars, time-saving and nifty devices abound, and everything could ‘talk’ to each other. Fast forward to 2013, and we still have the same interconnected vision in mind. Coined as the Internet of Things (IoT) movement, we’re now striving to connect everything virtually: machines with other machines (M2M), machines with people, and people with other people.
