Smart devices are being used increasingly in every nook and corner of the world as the users augment their usage of devices for controlling day to day activities. The number of these devices will exceed the world’s population by the end of this year. Products and logistics will be rendered via connected devices, hence the organisations that are still not compatible to this viable growth in devices must look into the matter before its too late. The already big corporations have been working in order to sustain themselves in the market. Those of who want to remain in the race of growing connected devices must reinvent their enterprise architecture in order to benefit in the changing scenario of the industry.
The rise in use of smart devices will impact everyone and every organisation, no matter what sector of industry the organisation serves.It will impact the technological as well as non-technological firms. Internet of things will change the way logistics are handled and the companies rendering the physical products will further leverage it by means of complete digitally connected version.
Market demands : In a few years all the product lines and logistics will see a major technology breakthrough. The smart devices have made it very easy, fast and convenient to send and receive data from one place to another. Corporate communications has fastened. Hence, all the organisations, major or minor, will be totally connected and IOT enables within a few years time.
Manufacturing alterations : The change in use of technology for detecting and collecting every relevant data has led to every appliance and device being embedded with detectors and actuators. Taking cognizance of the fact, the production of appliances in various companies might underwent a complete change so that the products thereafter are actually technology driven “things”.
The race to build the newest product and platform : Nest started off with building a thermostat. Later they came with the platform of automation. Similarly, other tech companies are in the race to get the best idea for the platform and to get a new product in the market. But for launching a sustainable, useful and functional platform, it is necessary to first decide on an innovative product for the consumers.
Reinventing workflows within an organisation : A hardware is nothing but software wrapped in plastic and connected hardware is all about successful data transaction. As more and more software would control the users’ data, less workforce would be required to operate the workflows. Leaner yet more intelligent team would be required to communicate and enable communication amongst devices.
Mobile as the natural interface with the connected devices : Even if there are slew of connected devices spanning the market, the mobile is the medium to place communication amidst them all. Several countries now fulfil money transaction and banking through their mobile phones. Therefore, mobiles cannot be negated for the roles they have played so far and the role they will be playing in interfacing with several key devices at workplace and home environments.
The recent advancements in connectivity, artificial intelligence and robotics has forced the organisations to move forward in terms of technological developments. A change of strategic planning to build businesses in order to accommodate these developments is therefore the need of the hour.
