Secure connection, data storage and protection will have a top priority for the IoT technology.
Smooth integration of new IoT technologies in the existing systems will require advanced skills and high-qualified specialists.
Internet of Things is more than just a buzzword now. The digital transformation of our daily life has already started. It is happening as a matter of course providing us a key to more comfortable, safe and sustainable future.
