Business strategy expert Michael Porter recently referred to it as the “Third wave of IT innovation”. Not a day passes without articles being published about the multi-billion dollar value that it will help create.
If you are still wondering what this is about…here’s one more hint – While everyone seems to agree on the impact that this will create not many understand the true shape that this could take in the future.
We are talking about the Internet of Things (IoT) and the promise of an utopian future where connected devices are the norm. As experts will tell you, the IoT as it is popularly called, is not new-to-the-world. In fact it has been around in different forms for many years.
While a few industries like manufacturing are ahead of the curve with adoption of IoT, there are new use cases within other industries where the concept of devices talking to each other over the internet is helping with designing innovative products, tackling inefficiencies within supply chains, improving customer service and more. Businesses of all types – manufacturers, servicing organizations, public utilities, industrial, telecommunications, healthcare providers and more are adopting the use of sensor technology to lower operating costs and increase business value. This is driving the need for instant access to information for speed-of-thought insight and the ability to deliver new services in record time.
