Abstract CRM and iOT: A Storm is Coming The CRM industry has grown over the past 20+ years to provide a robust and rich repository of customer and prospect data. The IoT on the other hand is relatively new, still finding its place in the business and consumer world through trial and error, with a still-evolving set of products which will fail or succeed based on adoption and impact. Key to stickiness of IoT devices is ‘data’, but the introduction of large amounts data from multiple device sources into what historically would be seen as an ‘account’ on a CRM system is problematic. This discussion will look at how the industry is preparing for this coming storm of data in business and personal CRM accounts through data intermediaries utilizing design protocols such as MQTT and CoAP. How can we ensure that only relevant data stay at the forefront of CRM accounts and cases, data ‘noise’ is reduced or eliminated, and system performance is not negatively impacted by the coming deluge? Let’s discuss!
