Challenge 1

Choosing a technology that will be obsolete in a few years time.

Probably the biggest risk of investment in IIoT today, is to adopt a technology that will impede any future flexibility as standards and business models alter. Whomever is responsible for these decisions will have the concern:

“I do not want to invest in technology now and find it obsolete in a few years”.


To avoid becoming obsolete the technology chosen must satisfy the following conditions:

  1. Have an ability to build in a buffer for errors of design that naturally come to light only during the development stages.
  2. Have the flexibility to pivot dramatically in a lean start-up philosophy if the product or ecosystem needs to change far beyond the natural adjustments mentioned in 1 above.
  3. Lastly the technology must have a great scalability so that the company may start small and still plan big for the future, without needing to change technology platforms.
