Why the Internet of Things isn’t like the Big Bang - Microsoft for Work

“If you don’t take advantage of [the Internet of Things],” says Kevin Ashton, “your competitor will, and it will put you out of business.” Ashton knows firsthand what the Internet of Things (IoT) can do for an organization, having coined the term more than a decade ago when he was what he calls a “fairly junior manager” at Procter & Gamble. As he explains, they couldn’t keep certain products on the shelves; they needed computers to track items. The solution, radio-frequency identification (RFID), is now mainstream technology. But the processes related to IoT aren’t, and that, the experts say, is where the danger lies. “It’s not the devices,” stresses Frank Burkitt, senior executive advisor at Strategy&. IoT is a “Niagara Falls of information,” but it’s a “gradual, step-by-step process.

Ashton agrees, citing retail as a classic example. IoT: le aziende sono pronte per un Business da trilioni di Dollari? [INFOGRAFICA] Le aziende sono pronte ad affrontare il business multi-milionario dell'Internet of Things?

This explosion of data can provide a better experience for all of us, but at the same time, it puts the minutia of our lives on the Internet, where it could potentially be seen by anyone. Welcome to the Internet of things. From watches to toothbrushes, thermostats to refrigerators, tech companies are encouraging us to record our activities and send the data up into the cloud, where they can look at it and optimize our experiences. Due to how cheap and available technology is, it is easy to incorporate it into the most mundane aspects of our lives. Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity to enable it to achieve greater value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices.

Internet of Things

Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. The term “Internet of Things” was first documented by a British visionary, Kevin Ashton, in 1999.[1] Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.[2] The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.[3] Early history[edit]
