IoT in your business: What possibilities lie ahead?
The Internet of Things (IoT) might have gained popularity in the consumer space from the various home automation products put out by the biggest names in tech, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. For decades now, businesses across the globe have leveraged IoT to collect data, generate insights, control facilities remotely, and optimize many aspects of their operation.
The technology traces its origins back to the 1980s with a simple temperature sensor connected to a soda vending machine. While it’s gone through a whirlwind of innovation, the essence remains the same – to give you as much data as possible to help you run your business more effectively.
From corporate to retail and everything in between, enterprises have devised ingenious ways to incorporate IoT. Whether it is monitoring and maintaining the health of critical equipment, controlling office lighting and HVAC, or understanding their customers better, organizations are creating new possibilities every day through IoT.
What in the world is IoT?
The Internet of Things (IoT) can be characterized by the billions of, historically unintelligent physical devices, that are now connected to data networks via the Internet. These devices are made intelligent by embedding sensors and compute that communicate real-time data without human intervention.
