As the IoT becomes more widespread, companies are coming to the realization that although IoT stands for “Internet of Things,” the reality is that these solutions are less about the things and more about using the data generated from these things.

The problem is even more complex in industrial IoT (IIoT), where billions of data points can be generated every second from manufacturing systems and factory floors
