    Are you not 100% satisfied with your IoT project? I would like to share with you an unusual piece of advice: Stop framing your IoT projects around the technologies that make up "The Internet of Things."

    The future securely belongs to IoT

    Many people would prefer not to talk about the topic of IoT security. Unfortunately, since attacks on IoT infrastructures are not uncommon, ignoring the subject would be a very bad idea. A variety of studies show that up to 70 percent of those surveyed have information about an attack on their installed IoT. And if that wasn't concerning enough, more…

That all changed at the Cumulocity IUG 2022 meeting as Philipp Mayer, Managing Director of codestryke, shared his IoT project experience with the audience on the positive note we’ve all been missing.

    For successful edge IoT projects, buy-and-build

    A customer for a new IoT project said to me: “Jürgen, we know exactly what won’t work.” Obviously, his past experiences with IoT hadn’t always been positive. Unfortunately, he’s not alone. Many companies say that their IoT projects aren’t going as hoped or planned. This is unfortunate and, most of all, largely unnecessary. What’s going wrong with so many projects?…
