    Huge opportunity to disrupt and claim a major share of the evolving IoT space. Convergence is imminent and company is well positioned.

    Change management across the organization is required. Too much tolerance for non-team oriented behavior. While world class... product and solutions need to be easier to use

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate. Focus on process, remove old guard thinking and protectionist mentality, align teams and goals to drive values and outcomes.
