The report highlights the opinions and experiences of IoT decision-makers on topics that include: drivers for adoption; major challenges and pain points; deployment and maturity of IoT implementations; investment in and utilization of devices; the decision-making process; and forward- looking plans.

Highlights drivers and challenges facing companies that are implementing IoT solutions.

Google and software provider Foghorn Systems have teamed up to help manufacturers simplify the deployment of industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions and maximize the business value they can derive from the IoT, according toZDNet.

Here are some key takeaways from the report:

Through the partnership, Google Cloud will integrate its IoT Core managed platform with Foghorns Lighting Edge Intelligence edge computing platform. Edge computing refers to when data is stored, processed, and analyzed locally, rather than in the cloud or at a remote data center. IoT Core, which Google first unveiled last spring, is a fully managed service that enables companies to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from IoT devices. Foghorns platform, meanwhile, is an edge-based machine learning and analytics platform designed to help companies sift through and make sense of massive data sets very quickly.

This includes the search engines Pub/Sub, Google BigQuery, the Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine, and Google Data Studio. Companies will be able to use all of these features at the edge of the network or in the cloud, adding flexibility and limiting potential latency issues.

How the IoT Will Affect Security & Privacy

We forecast that there will be nearly $15 trillion in aggregate IoT investment between 2017 and 2025, with survey data showing that companies plans to invest in IoT solutions are accelerating.

Cloud-based analytics are highly capable but often limited by the constrained capabilities of the networks they are connected to. Sensors deployed on a remote oil pipeline, for instance, might face latency issues that require the sensors data to be run via edge computing instead of through cloud-based analytics.

Through an exclusive study and in-depth research into the field,Business Insider Intelligence(Business Insiders premium research service) details the components that make up theIoT ecosystem. We size the IoT market and use exclusive data to identify key trends in device installations and investment. And we profile the enterprise and consumer IoT segments individually, drilling down into the drivers and characteristics that are shaping each market.

While IoT Core offers standard features like data storage, analytics, and dashboard-based data visualization, it doesnt have the long list of features offered by earlier entrants likeAmazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or IBMs Bluemix. Googles now building a more robust features list via numerous acquisitions and strategic hiring. Last month, the companypurchasedXively from software provider LogMeIn to add IoT device management capabilities to IoT Core, and hired longtime Samsung CTO Injong Rhee to coordinate and lead its enterprise IoT efforts; this agreement with Foghorn is just the latest iteration of this strategy.

Manufacturers will be able to deploy the processing and analytics capabilities of IoT Core at the edge for the first time.

be able to be run through Google Clouds standard features.

Previously, IoT Core was only available through Googles core cloud service. This partnership will help Google grab a share of the 5.6 million IoT devices around the globe thatwill be connectedto an edge-based computing solution in 2020.

from IoT deployments they were previously unable to.

The search giant will likely continue to try and leverage its extensive background in machine learning to add more features and attract more partners, but it still has a long way to go before it poses a serious threat to Amazon and others in the$325 billion IoT platform market.

This partnership is important for Google, which was a late entrant to the IoT platform market, compared with Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM, but is aggressively trying to catch up via partnerships and acquisitions. These other players have offered cloud- and edge-based platforms for at least the three years, while Google IoT Core only came out of the public beta testing phase last month.
