According to a study published by Statista, IoT devices will produce 79 zettabytes of data in 2025, which will be a 483% increase from 2019. To put this number into perspective, if we store this information in smartphones with a storage of 128 GB each, we would need 617.1875 billion smartphones. Yet, without further processing, this data is worth almost nothing. Only by transforming and analyzing this data do you unlock the immense added value promised by the Internet of Things (IoT).

A common question is how you actually process the data collected from IoT devices. There are several ways to do this, but one of the most compelling is using the MQTT protocol to send IoT data via Apache Kafka for further processing in a system of your choice.
