    An IoT solution typically has to pass through multiple tiers of application logic and data storage. This concept introduces the idea of the “connected app.” The software that drives the app will need to interconnect with “Things” and other systems to deliver a complete solution.

    This leads to quite a few challenges for software developers. On the server side it's quite IT standard, using SAP Cloud Platform for ex. (Micro Services) development... But on the Hardware part, a number of skills is needed depending on the device/Edge hardware technology.

    Embedded development with RTOS would require low level development like C/C++, Windows based devices may also require .Net skills, and Linux/others would target more Java... NodeJS, Python and Micro Services are common skills that are usually required on all theses platforms.
