This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
