Internet of Things: Exploring the next big thing in mobile
Internet of Things (IoT) has been
hailed as the next big thing in the mobile industry. As
connections from objects and things interconnect with
existing and new end points, the networked effect can
provide tremendous opportunities, reshape existing
processes, user experiences, and expectations. But, really,
how real is IoT and what will it take to reach the billions
of dollars promised. Will it fundamentally alter how we do
things? We are starting to see signs of tremendous progress.
GE is investing $4B+ into its version of IoT – the
industrial Internet and it is making the difference in
operations and machine learning. Connected consumer gadgets
are enabling us to lead healthier lives, work more
efficiently, and manage our time more effectively.
As we start 2014, Mobile Breakfast
Series is taking a deeper look into IoT and the
opportunities it represents, the challenges it faces, and
the timeline for success.
