    Q&A with Aater Suleman: Building the Innovation Friendly IoT Infrastructure

    Enterprises are investing heavily in their IoT efforts, so much so that the total IoT market is expected to grow to $1.7 trillion by 2020, compared to its $656 billion in 2014, according to research firm IDC. The research firm Gartner estimates that there will be 8 billion business-connected IoT devices by 2020. With so many devices coming online, enterprises can expect a lot of changes and incremental demand on their infrastructure.

    Those that do it right will be able to drive innovative solutions for themselves and their businesses. But what does such an innovative friendly IoT infrastructure look like? For that answer, we turned to Flux7 co-founder, Aater Suleman.

By some estimates there will be more than 50 billion intelligent and connected devices by the year 2020, and within a decade, according to a McKinsey study, these devices will spark $11 trillion in economic value. Despite uncertainty around return on investment, regulations, or the ability to execute because of technological barriers, the move to connect and add intelligences to disparate and distributed devices remains strong.

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly moving from niche use cases to normal business. According to research firm IDC, about three-quarters of respondents have IoT deployment plans, or already have efforts underway.

    The Big Trends Driving Digital Transformation

    It’s rare to find the business that isn’t grappling with growing business pressures, whether it’s business competitors becoming more effective through the use of emerging technologies, growing global competition, and even the increased effectiveness of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Those organizations that learn how to not only embrace emerging technologies, but master them, are going to be the victors in the immediate years ahead.
