Challenges to the adoption of IoT
IoT is one of the most powerful innovations of our times. The technological future is truly written in IoT. There are, however, a few roadblocks to the adoption of IoT, some of which are listed as under:
Ubiquitous connectivity: Even today, the internet is not available in many areas of the world. This fact is not just relevant to developing countries but also to several areas in Northern Europe and America where there is no internet coverage. The whole concept of IoT lies on constant and reliable connectivity which is an issue in areas which do not have an internet access.
Security: IoT focuses on connecting more and more devices together. This causes more entry points for viruses. Devices that are less expensive are at a greater risk of being tampered with. Just focusing on solving technical issues to keep people’s data safe is not enough. We must move further than that. A firm trust must be established in the consumer’s and business user’s mind. iTuple with its association with AWS (which is the greatest data repository) brings down concerns related to the security of the data.
Complexity in integration: Today there are multiple platforms available for IoT integration. This causes confusion around evolving standards which leads to slow adoption. Slower adoption and unanticipated development resource requirements are causing delays in delivery and additional funding for IoT projects. Organizations such as iTuple have come up with a fantastic solution to the problem of integration through iOanyT. It is a wonderful solution for every individual who is looking forward to adopt IoT technology without the hassle of implementation like Hardware integration of IoT with IoT Cloud Architecture such as Amazon SES, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
Interoperability: As many different systems are getting connected through IoT, it has been creating a lot of interoperability challenges. It is being difficult to create real cross-domain services that will allow seamless movement of devices and data.
Evolving architectures and competing standards: As there are a number of competitors in the market today, it is no wonder that there is an ongoing war between these competitors to protect their proprietary systems and set new standards. Every day, multiple standards are evolving based on different requirements determined by device class, power requirements, capabilities and uses. This presents opportunities for platform vendors to contribute and influence future standards which causes problems in IoT implementation as too many standards are produced leading to confusion.
Therefore, these issues if not addressed can lead to major problems in the implementation of IoT technology.
