IoT is the next stage of the information revolution. It is driven by inter-connectivity of everything from urban transport to medical devices and other wearables and household or consumer appliances. The application of IoT is virtually limitless, restricted today only by network architecture and data storage capacity. While specialized use cases exist, IoT adoption is central to the success of several ‘smart’ categories – city, enterprise, environment, home, and wearables. The characteristics of the IoT products and solutions in these categories vary significantly but their primary goals are similar – using big data and connectivity to generate a level of knowledge and insight previously unavailable such that every day happenings, lives and processes are improved upon by the new services, approaches and solutions derived.
