Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.
