While big data projects may seem a complicated beast to many IT professionals, working on an Internet of Things (IoT) project will likely make anything else feel simpler by comparison. The sheer velocity required for IoT projects is immense. The term “expanding velocity demands” will be familiar to those who have worked on big data projects, being brought up in relation to data storage and a system’s ability to handle the increasing influx of data. Entire architectures and technologies have been created in response, enabling real-time storage of large data volumes. When working on an IoT project, however, organizations need to keep in mind not only real-time storage requirements, but also the crucial need to enable real-time analysis and decision-making.
