Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

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

I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
