The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or even people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has changed the world of connections in a substantial way. It has evolved way beyond Alexa playing the song you request. As a result, the device management market will be soaring in the coming years. Channel Partners brought this interesting news to us in their article, “HP, IBM, Microsoft Lead Explosive Growth in IoT Device Management.”

Many believe the market is likely to be fragmented due to the existence of large and small players. However, the increasing number of IoT device-management companies and the advancement in technology are definitely stimulating market growth. And they aren’t slowing down any. Key vendors are heavily investing in research and development to strengthen their presence across the globe to maintain a foothold in this market in the coming years.
