Public sector organizations are increasingly turning to the Internet of Things to power smarter, better connected communities and increase internal operational efficiencies. But the traditional way of adding sensors and devices to government IT infrastructures simply can’t support the wealth of data that IoT generates. Plus, traditional architectures don’t let agencies reap the benefits and insights they want to achieve.

This course explains a better way of setting up IoT systems to help government. In three lessons, you will learn:

  • The basics of the Internet of Things
  • What IT components are required for IoT
  • How to create a better IoT system
