I agree with you Peter. The real factor is that there is a shortage of workers available at the salaries companies want to pay, with the possible exception of analog where there is such a limited number of people in the field.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
