The Internet of Everything – An Opportunity to Transform

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next shift in our relationship with technology. We’ll see multiple devices, objects and things talking to each other and us. We’re already getting a feel for how it will affect our lives. We can control our heating and security cameras from our smartphones.

IDC predicts 30 billion “things” will be connected to the IoT by 2020. It’s an incredible opportunity, especially for device and software manufacturers. The IoT will demand connectivity, platforms, applications, secure hardware and supporting services – an opportunity for transformation. To learn more, download Monetizing IOT e-book.
