Today, almost all systems can be simplified into message processing entities; they send and receive messages to and from other systems. In the same way, devices can be simplified into units that are capable of sensing and actuating. In other words, devices are a lot closer to the real world compared to systems. By integrating devices with the systems, the behavior and liveliness of the systems can be greatly improved.

However, doing so introduces many challenges such as

  • Device identity and metadata management
  • Device failure
  • Anomaly detection
  • Security token management
  • Processing large amounts of data
  • Guaranteed message delivery
  • Device specific transports and protocols
