How IoT can help your organisation is entirely down to the problems you want to solve.
IoT is about the evolution of a new ecosystem – one that brings together new disciplines, including connected devices, data analytics, automation and artificial intelligence amongst them.
This technology strategy has led to some outstanding achievements: connected beehives have helped us understand and address the reasons behind the collapse in bee population; sensors are used in the homes of the frail and vulnerable to monitor their daily wellbeing without being intrusive; eCall in cars automatically calls the emergency services in the event of an accident, saving precious minutes; flood sensors are used to predict and help prevent flooding by the UK’s rivers.
Slowly but surely, IoT is changing our very society, touching every part of our lives. And business is no exception.
