So, what does it mean? Internet of things refer to the interconnected devices embedded in common objects and tools to enable users to send and receive information and data. This concept highlights that in an age where nearly everything will become digital, technology is an enabler for both businesses and people. Technology is the bringer of change.
Internet of things is not just about connecting people, it is about connecting things, and that is why it is important. We rely on our ability to use and control objects as well as using them to sense and navigate with other objects. Objects having the ability to communicate with one another. One example would be a smartphone. The handset has sensors that know where its located in relation to other objects (satellites) which shows how the phone communicates with objects in addition to its primary purpose in connecting people.
So the Internet of Things…
Technology is the future. The changes within businesses both internally and externally need to be understood. These changes can impact the way we live our lives, the way we work and the way we innovate.
