In fact, according to IT Pro, more than 200.000 IoT jobs are expected to be added by 2022, and the demand for IoT professionals far exceeds the current pool of candidates.
But what is IoT exactly?
Well, perhaps it's simpler to start explaining what it is not. It is no longer just about connected consumer devices like wearables and smart thermostats.
As IoT evolves it has become a business application on a much larger-scale that is used in healthcare, manufacturing, and nearly every other industry that you can imagine.

IoT solutions often involve devices and technologies from many different vendors, and you will need a good understanding of software and hardware and the strategies to integrate them properly.
Security is a big concern with IoT, watch this video of Readynez Senor Instructor Jens Gilges, where he talks about IoT concerns from the real-world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjtLW3rijAo
The main security concerns are to-do with attack vulnerability and privacy. The more devices and technologies that are part of IoT solutions, the more entry points need to be managed against cyber attacks.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of benefits for industry, energy and utility companies, municipalities, healthcare, and consumers. Data can be collected in extraordinary volume and detail regarding almost anything worth measuring, such as public health and safety, the environment, industrial and agricultural production, energy, and utilities.
New data analysis tools have been optimized for the massive amounts of data that IoT produces, enabling wellinformed decisions to be made quickly. But putting IoT systems into place can be a complicated proposition, and fraught with hazards even for the most experienced of architects.
Solutions may involve devices and technologies from many different vendors, requiring a good understanding of software and hardware and strategies to integrate them, as well as the risks associated with security, privacy, and the safety of those whose working and living environments are managed by these systems.
The Certified Internet of Things exam will certify that you have the foundational knowledge of IoT concepts, technologies, and tools that will enable you to become a capable IoT practitioner in a wide variety of IoT-related job functions.
