I had the opportunity to be a guest in the popular podcast “This is Product Management”. Mike Fishbein and I had a great conversation on the challenges Product Managers face when building IoT products. I also answer one of the top questions I get: “How do I get into IoT Product Management?”
Many Product Managers still think industry experience is unnecessary to get hired. However, as a hiring manager, I know firsthand that industry experience can make a difference when deciding between final job candidates. Learn why hiring managers DO value industry experience, and how to develop a game plan to gain industry knowledge and position yourself as a strong candidate.
News flash: If you’re building your own IoT infrastructure, you’re wasting time and money, and jeopardizing the quality of your product. In this post, I discuss how you can reduce cost and boost quality with an IoT platform, how to choose the right platform, and debunk myths about the benefits of building your infrastructure in-house.
IoT security is tough and risky. A security breach can put human lives at risk, because hackers can get control of real-world objects. To make things worse, IoT products give hackers a new attack point: the physical device. How can you ensure your IoT product is protected across all layers of the stack?
In this post, I share the IoT Decision Framework I developed to help Product Managers tackle the complexity of IoT products. This framework provides an easy-to-follow structure to uncover requirements at each layer of the IoT stack, including business decisions, technical decisions, and more.
Too many product teams and entrepreneurs think, “If I connect it, they will come.” The problem is that people don’t buy IoT, they buy a solution to a problem. In this post, I talk about an excellent example of IoT solving a customer problem, and share tips for evaluating if IoT is right for your product.
