The Internet of things (IoT) continues to evolve and expand its capabilities. As it does, it also increases the total impact it has on businesses and end users alike. In fact, as a leading global research and advisory firm, Gartner predicts that, in 2019 and beyond, IoT will profoundly change the way businesses operate and how their IT organisations are structured.
