The application of Internet of Things technology is gaining speed fast now within the field of Real Estate and FM. By the use of sensors and other communication devices, the behavior of people and things are quantified, providing the basis for radical redesign of support processes. However, with the growing adoption of IoT technologies, the related data volumes increase, the diversity of devices is growing fast and the means by which Things communicate is diversifying as well. In other words, systems providing IoT solutions are confronted with serious challenges in handling increased (device and network) diversity and matching requirements for scalability. At the same time, concerns around security and data privacy are growing in the marketplace. As a result, new IoT architectures are being put in place, designed to meet the challenges as stipulated. In this presentation, presenters are discussing some of the fundamental changes we see in the IoT systems landscape today, providing backgrounds for understanding and some initial guidance for those who are considering the adoption of IoT based solutions.
