The Internet of Things is booming. Some of the biggest names in the industry have become prominent players implementing key elements of the IoT that span from the Cloud down to the end device. Several companies are investing in creating complete ecosystems in order to ensure the interoperability of devices with one another and with the Cloud. For example, Google and Nest investing in Weave are dueling with Apple’s HomeKit and Samsung promised to connect everything it makes by 2020 to the internet.
