As usual, it may raise more questions than it answers.

I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I made a feeble attempt to put some structure behind this nebulous concept of the IoT. Much of my thinking (not to mention the industry) has progressed since then, but I had a discussion recently that forced me to go back to an image I had put together illustrating how I saw the various pieces of the IoT coming together.
