There are four major challenges in handling IIoT data that we describe here, and also touch upon how enterprises should prepare themselves to address these challenges. In the next section, we will describe the architecture that will help address these challenges:
- The following six characteristics of data captured by IIoT solutions need to be managed in order to make these solutions effective for enterprises:

- Velocity (data in motion): Capturing and processing streaming data in seconds or milliseconds to meet needs or demands.
- Variety (data in many forms): Structured, unstructured, text, multimedia, video, audio, sensor data, meter ...
