The “Internet of things” (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. But what exactly is the “Internet of things” and what impact is it going to have on us, if any?
The Internet can be described as a ubiquitous infrastructure that has evolved from being a technology for connecting people and places to a technology connecting things. The future is the Internet of Things (IoT), which aims to unify everything in our world under a common infrastructure, giving us not only control of the things around us, but also keeping us informed of the state of the things around us.
There is an exceptional number of applications that can make use of the Internet of Things, from home and office automation to production line and retail product tracking. The number of applications is endless. For each application, a particular IoT service can be applied in order to optimize application development and speed up application implementation.
