Internet of Things
Of all the technology trends that are taking place right now, perhaps the biggest one is the Internet of Things; it is the one that is going to give us the most disruption as well as the most opportunity over the next years. The IoT is fueling innovation in nearly every part of our lives. Simply connecting the “Things” that were never connected before is leading to new data insights that translate into meaningful change. IoT is a mega technology trend that will not only be an endurance test for legacy systems but will also shape the fate of small and big companies in many different industries.
We strongly believe that businesses who learn to harness the data created by the Internet of Things are the ones who will survive and thrive in the future. They are all everyday objects that can be connected to the internet and be recognized by other devices and contribute info to a database.
Cloud-based applications are the key to using leveraged data. The Internet of Things does not function without cloud-based applications to interpret and transmit the data coming from all these sensors. The cloud is what enables the apps to go to work for you anytime, anywhere.
