I was recently having a discussion with Richard Hackathorn, an industry strategist & analyst and Dan Graham, a colleague who is deep into my company’s strategy for the Internet of Things (IoT). We were specifically talking about how to enable the Analytics of Things (AoT) and what barriers and opportunities exist today.
During the discussion, it hit me that one of the biggest hurdles faced in trying to purse the AoT is actually just a new iteration of a common, recurring problem that has vexed analytics professionals for years. Namely, we can’t analyze anything related to IoT until the infrastructure investment is made to create, acquire, and make available the data necessary for analysis.
