A myriad of wireless and wired “things” now collect more data from more sources than ever before.By 2020 there will be 30 billion connected (autonomous) devices, according to predictions by IDC.
Information from cameras, smartphones, wearable devices and other sensors are contributing to a massive growth in information gathering, creating demand for connectivity everywhere.
This phenomena is popularly called the “Internet of Things”
Companies now want to monitor all parts of their business, to create a “real time” picture of their entire company at any given time.
Were you previously measured your business every month, week or day, you are now able to measure everything, globally in real time. Everything from offshore oil flow measurements , to real time GPS location of your delivery trucks is now a normal occurrence.
The ability to connect, monitor and ultimately make use of this constant data stream , is important to maintain or improve your competitiveness in the fast changing markets of today.
The “Internet of Things” is transforming decision making processes fast. Companies with accurate real-time information will be able to respond much faster to changes in the market than their competitors.
