Every now and then it is observed that users talk about the next technical innovation that is about to be released into the market. Even the business world awaits new technical products to launch innovations to grab the market. Internet of things was sought to be one such term that is more of just a theoretical concept than a practically implied integration of machines. With the use of devices at homes like thermostats and smart fridges, there has been an overall shift of the way the data was used by people who are mostly out for work and require automation of most of their day to day functions. The sensor based devices are being used to capture data from and around various environmental settings to implement that data in a better and more useful way in future.
With the gradual acceptance of connected devices, cloud is being used in several places to get hold over the data gathered from devices like smart cars, smartphones, wearables, fitness equipment, robots, ATMs and vending machines. Start ups have begun to benefit from this, and newer devices as well as services are being leveraged by using the SaaS enabled enterprise level applications. Analytics has also improved in rendering results in consumer reference and behaviour by accumulation of all data in Cloud.
Internet of things is the merger of the digital entities with the physical world. We have observed the gradual shift of technologies from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 and further. Similarly, we have moved on from smartphones to using wearables for a number of tasks. We are now looking forward to connect these already existing devices to leverage greater usability to people in terms of intelligence, instrumentation and interconnectedness. The Cloud along with Big Data Solutions will handle all cumbersome, ever growing data with the connected devices spanning across the planet. The successful enforcement and management of data as well as devices will surely lead to a better connected world.
