Problem: Technology complexity results in inadequate IoT device testing

Internet of things (IoT) is bringing about a paradigm shift in the industry. It’s ushering in an era of hyper-efficiency driven by information and connectivity. Companies that are moving fast to adopt these technologies and ramp up their IoT offerings are soon finding that overall complexity, combined with the lack of test tools and best practices, are impacting their go-to-market plans. Inadequate test strategy leaves companies exposed to a lot of risk from mission-critical applications failing in the field.
