Decision-making IoT adoption in small and medium enterprises is a complex task led by the organization’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) that is affected by the permanent change in the information and communication technologies sector, which implies high investment costs by organizations due to the acquisition of technology, maintenance of technology, training of employees for the appropriate use of each technology, and expensive contracts with Internet of Things providers for the execution of IoT projects.
