The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to be one of the top 5 growth industries for the technology sector in 2017. IoT products and services are being created by new startups, within internal departments of Fortune 500 companies and everything in-between. Looking at the number of new and continuing conferences offered this year, there is an exponentially growing demand of people wanting to learn more about the business side of IoT and how to use / deploy IoT.
Below are 5 books to help inform you about IoT – get one or maybe all of them, and explore this wondrous technology:
1 – The Amazon Way on IoT: 10 Principles for Every Leader from the World’s Leading Internet of Things Strategies (Volume 2) ($12.99 – paperback) explains how the combination of sensors, cloud computing and machine learning can be used to improve customer experiences, drive operational improvements and build new business models
