The #AskIoT team sits down with Mark Testoni to discuss IoT in the public sector, how IoT affects National Security and the most challenging parts of building mission-critical solutions.

In this episode, we address the differences between IoT in the public sector verse thecommercial and consumer industries. Mark discusses what success looks like for companies who sell IoT solutions and those that are looking to adopt IoT for their organizations.

Stability and reliability are essential for any defense sector mission-critical enterprise system, which differs from the consumer space. We asked Mark about the unique challenges in building mission-critical systems, how he addresses these challenges and what’s required to ensure they’re achieved.

We conclude the episode with our #AskIoT segment. Mark provides insight into the biggest implications IoT has on national security, and what the future of IoT looks like in the public sector.

Mark leaves us with a message about SAP’s non-profit, NS2 Serves, a program dedicated to helping veterans by providing valuable IT training and employment assistance at no cost to the veterans. Be sure to check it out!
