Deathmatch 2014: The battle to control the Internet of Things

Technology vendors just cant help themselves. Every time we hit an inflection point on a new technology, they separate themselves in armed groups to battle over standards. Each camp wants to control those standards to give its members a competitive advantage. And so we launch into a multi-year battle that confuses customers and delays mass adoption.

The latest fight is over standards to rule the Internet of Things (IoT). As most of you are aware, the smart grid was, in many ways, the first example of the IoT at scale. Now that many utilities have all or part of a smart grid in place, they are being asked to connect it to other things to smart buildings or smart street lights or smart appliances and so on.
