It was projected that by 2020, more than 50 billion devices would be connected to the cloud. But that goal doesn’t seem to be achievable as we approach 2019. And the biggest reason for this lack of pace is the protocol incompatibilities of different kinds of industrial machines in the world – especially from legacy machines that do not support standard connection protocols and need complicated integration, workarounds and configurations to connect them to cloud and draw data out of them. If any IoT platform ever has to have a competitive edge over other it has to have a fast and easy way to connect, which in German is called schnell and einfach.
