The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of benefits for industry, energy and utility companies, municipalities, healthcare, and consumers. Data can be collected in extraordinary volume and detail regarding almost anything worth measuring, such as public health and safety, the environment, industrial and agricultural production, energy, and utilities. New data analysis tools have been optimized for the massive amounts of data that IoT produces, enabling well-informed decisions to be made quickly.
Business professionals often have little or no foundation for understanding of the components and design decisions that go into an IoT project. They may have a traditional understanding of information technology (IT) or operational technology (OT) solutions, which may include knowledge of networks, cloud computing, and applications running on servers, desktop computers, and mobile devices. With IoT technology embedded in 95 percent of all new electronics, awareness of how IoT will impact your organization will better enable you to derive solutions to generate revenue, leverage customer data, and reduce costs.
But putting IoT systems into place can be a complicated proposition with unique considerations distinctly different from traditional IT or OT solutions. Before you can successfully manage, sell, or plan an IoT solution, you must understand the various factors that will drive an organization’s decisions.
This course and associated credential (IOZ-110) will validate a participant’s knowledge of IoT terminology and their ability to understand the components of IoT infrastructure, uncover challenges for consideration, and determine the impact that IoT has on their organization.
Successful participants will be able to identify what IoT can do for their organizations and recognize the various business and technical challenges to address.
