In an earlier post in 2013 I made a few predictions for the year ahead. The ‘Internet of Things’ was one of the mega-trends I highlighted.
Here is CISCO‘s take on the Internet of Things, which they call “The Internet of Everything“.
It boils down to interconnecting four key things: people, process, data and things.
As David Evans says in a recent blog article this will turn “information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries.”
We are in for an exciting future but the reality is of course, that this future is already here. In five years time (2017) it is predicted that there will be 10 billion smart devices on the planet and these will outnumber humans.
