Leverage Connections to Drive Business Value

By 2020, it is predicted that there will be over 50 billion devices connected to the internet. Over 100 times as many as existed just 10 years ago – that’s nearly 7 devices for every person on the planet. These devices will span industrial, commercial and consumer markets and will be able to intelligently respond to human interaction and business needs in a remarkable variety of ways. The Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and the Cloud create a new very fertile ecosystem that has and will make our lives more effective and enjoyable and provide vast new opportunities for business to improve their operational efficiencies and provide opportunities for growth.
