As IoT applications proliferate, they are becoming more transformative due to the technological convergence in 5G wireless, cloud computing, big data and data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, etc. The complex dynamics surrounding emerging IoT applications requires a comprehensive systems approach to integrate devices, connectivity, security, platforms, software and operation & management functions.
