Why IoT World Blog
I am excited to share with you my passion for the world of the Internet of Things (IoT). Since 2016, I have been writing posts for the IoT World blog, hoping to educate people about IoT’s technology, challenges, and potential benefits.
Over the years, I have seen about 50 to 1500 visitors per post, but I am eager to have more visitors and share my knowledge about IoT’s journey. Many people are not aware of IoT’s components and the technology itself. My blog aims to better understand various IoT components such as sensors, connectivity, middleware, and applications.
Furthermore, I emphasize the importance of understanding the technicalities of IoT to build and propose solutions to customers’ problems. Business models, commercial arrangements, and revenue streams associated with IoT are also covered in my blog. By understanding these aspects, readers can see how IoT can transform businesses and generate new opportunities.
My ultimate goal is to help readers better understand IoT’s benefits, technicalities, and business potential. By doing so, readers can develop their IoT projects and solve real-world problems for their companies or customers.
So if you want to venture into the world of IoT, join me on my blog, IoT World, and let’s learn and explore together!
