Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...

But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
