I’m a Chennai-based Writer and Journalist. I handle the Digital Content for Appearition. My super-cool colleagues design, innovate and create magic in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality. I use this space to present their magic in text. When I am not editing or scouring for story ideas one bit before hell breaks loose, I enjoy reading crime-fiction books and watching similar television series, do a bit of experimental cooking and some travel to wherever my bank balance supports upon paying all bills.

Internet of Things (IoT) – the technology that enables devices to connect with each other, providing a seamless inter-device communication. The technology helps in data management, informed decision making, track and manage the data. IoT provides businesses with operational efficiency and workforce productivity.

 

The explosion of smart devices will add ‘a ginormous’ amount of data. For instance, a sensor on a single Boeing aircraft jet engine can generate about 20 terabytes of data per hour. So what will happen several billion devices start generating several zettabytes of data? Gartner predicts that over 20 billion devices will be connected by 2020.

 

 

About 65% of the enterprises are set to adopt IoT by 2020. This shift would mean that more than 10% of new IoT products from traditional industries will be headed by the Chief Innovation Officer (CIO).

 

By 2020, Gartner estimates internet-connected things will outnumber humans 4-to-1, creating new dynamics for marketing, sales and customer service.

So, what else can we expect in the near future?
