For some developers the shine is beginning to come off of the IoT, especially in consumer applications, because even though the technology has generated a lot of buzz and interest, there is not often a compelling reason to adopt it. It’s cool, fun, convenient, and the like, but not compelling.
That's not true in the industrial market. For industry to adopt the IoT, there needs to be a good business case for making the investment. And increasingly, there is. Companies embracing the IIoT are finding substantial rewards in terms of reduced maintenance and downtime costs, better resource utilization, and the like. Consumer IoT has gotten the buzz, but industrial IoT is where the real money will be made for now.
