We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
