In the past few months I have attended many events, conferences and panels regarding Internet of Things (IoT) subjects, but I have also been discussing the topic with people who are not involved in IoT as professionals.
I have heard many different opinions about the opportunities from IoT, but also about the challenges from IoT deployments. The most of the conversations were about in IoT consumer market (B2C). Sometimes the debate was focusing only on the possible threats from IoT deployments (mainly from the academia and citizens), instead of exploring also the positive impact in the life of people and operations of companies. One of the challenges that is discussed a lot about IoT is the data privacy in the consumer market.
