Most of the stuff I see is just hype and lots of solutions looking for a problem. The analytics and nifty GUI/dashboards look impressive but do mainstream companies even need that sort of stuff all the time on all the data being generated and stored?
Will customers ever embrace all the ML/AI based stuff thrown around and start to pay for it continually? Most companies have had these kind of custom solutions architected inhouse for several decades and might feel irritated to see some young data scientists claim that they have invented something new in the name of IOT buzzwords.
I realized it was time to quit when I was asked to add blockchain somewhere.
