As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes more ubiquitous in consumers' daily lives, Security, Reliability and how well an organization digitally transforms this mass of sensor data into value will become distinguishing criteria. IoT vendors need to ensure they use partners with established platforms that can support highly available (HA) infrastructure and secure data stores for the collection and processing of large amounts of frequently changing sensor data.
