To refresh on what this means, IoT is a technology that connects everyday devices like your watches, alarm clocks, refrigerators and more to create a complete digital system. Such a system would connect different things to create a smooth data flow, that in turn can make life much [...]

There have been many reasons for this shift, with innovation being the foremost of them all.
