What is an IoT Roadmap?

IoT Roadmap is a company’s blueprint of tools and strategies to be successful with the IoT (Internet of Things) environment. The Internet of things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects—“things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the Internet.

To build an IoT roadmap, all layers of the IoT technology stack—device hardware, device software, communications, cloud platform, and cloud applications—need to work together. As the need to efficiently connect billions of physical devices around the world rapidly increases, the IoT landscape remains fragmented regarding technologies. IoT connectivity must be flexible and agile, to meet the network performance required for a wide variety of evolving IoT use cases, applications, and device types.
