09 Jun To be or not to be a Data Hoarder
ow much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Steve Stover about balancing the costs and the technology approaches to maximize your Internet of Things data value.

Listen to this episode to appreciate all the variables at play in this complex question – to be or not to be a data hoarder.
