Understanding IoT Device Management

Understanding IoT Device Management
This IDC Perspective provides an overview of the current state of IoT device management. It explores what device management means in an IoT context, why IoT device management is important, and some of the key vendors that play a role in the IoT device management ecosystem. It also provides technology buyers with guidance on key device management considerations."While there has been much market discussion and debate about IoT connectivity, IoT security, and IoT application development, one of the most fundamental aspects of deploying a successful IoT project often gets lost," says Stacy Crook, research director, IoT at IDC. "This frequently forgotten topic concerns how an organization deploys and maintains an IoT device fleet over its entire life cycle, otherwise known as IoT device management."
