Did you know we’ve been talking about the “Internet of Things” (IoT) since 1999? Talk of IoT creates a lot of buzz in our technology-driven world and while the possibilities seem exciting, too often the practical applications come across as vague or disconnected. So what does it all mean?
IoT is much more than connecting a network of “things”; it is an ecosystem of technologies working together. The value of IoT is created by connecting what can seem like unrelated devices, applications and data, to create a cognitive system where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
