Gartner Warns Of Approaching Apocalypse For IoT Data Management
SmartDataCollective, March 24th, 2016

"The unprecedented expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to a rapidly expanding amount of generated data. Industry experts are warning that at the current rate of growth, unstructured data will inevitably become an unmanageable tsunami. Data management overload is a near-certainty.

The report says that 'due to a lack of information capabilities adapted for the IoT' an estimated 25% of attempts to use IoT data will have to be abandoned prior to successful deployment..."

Searching For A Path To IoT Security
CIO, March 25th, 2016

The article was an accounting of a panel discussion between experienced security experts so their analysis was a downer for someone like me who believes that the IoT has so much potential in everyday human endeavors. Panelist Eugen Kaspersky summarized the problem from the point of view of critical infrastructure security: 'I am waiting for any government to introduce a cyber‑resilience strategy.' But then he later adds 'Lawyers are late and regulators are late. Government regulators typically take 10 years to recognize a problem'..."
