A Data Model in our context is an object-oriented data-centric representation of physically distributed and/or centralised data and functions within a system or sub-system.

Data models are key underlying structures that provide modularity, scalability, flexibility and interoperability between IoT systems big and small. 
On the small scale, they ensure easy mapping and logical grouping and action of inputs and outputs, and on the large scale, they make interoperability mapping between disparate systems elegant.
At the detail level, mapping layer APIs and comms protocols to the data model makes your system scalable, and helps avoid wheel-reinvention of platforms from development to development.
Data models bring order to the chaos, or rather, prevent chaos from being entertained.
