I am having some interesting discussions with my editors in our virtual newsroom.
I think this is a big deal. But others say that if they can't justify the ROI in investing in WSTS, they are making the right business decision.
Now, that's where I start to worry.
Business people often like to say "do the right thing." But the reality is that they like to talk about their occasional "doing the right thing" moments, because it happens so rarely.
In most cases, business/financial reasons trump everything. Forget about doing anything for the greater good.
Do we need WSTS?
Do we need SIA?
Let us know what you think.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
