IoT Demands These 10 New Development Requirements

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2014-07-03

The coming Internet of things (IoT), which we have been covering extensively here at eWEEK, is more than an expansion of the Internet. It's a new-generation brand of IT in which day-to-day objects connect with intelligent networks on their own to improve how we live. Key to this change is the extent to which previously disconnected objects rely on software to deliver enhanced functionality and connectivity. Thus, a new level of cross-fertilization is now required among development teams and product experts. While more products will become smart devices, a number of adjustments will need to be made in software development best practices in order for the IoT to succeed. New applications will have to be architected to support aggressive product-development cycles in highly regulated industries and in the dynamic, consumer-driven world of appliances and wearable devices. For these new effects to be positive, the right software will be crucial. This eWEEK slide show, using our reporting and industry perspective from John Wiliston, developer evangelist at Perforce Software, offers insight into these new development requirements.
