Understanding the Internet of ThingsThe term “the Internet of Things” isn’t new. It was actually coined nearly20 years ago by professors at MIT to describe a world where “things,”which can be devices or sensors, are both smart and connected, with theability to collect and share data. Data coming from those devices and/orsensors is endless, and when combined and analyzed with other typesof data, it can uncover insights that were out of reach in the past. Therelationships between all these things, and the invaluable data created bythem, is what the Internet of Things is all about. Imagine if your businesscould understand and make use of the data collected by the things mostimportant to your business and its processes, and if that understandingcould help make your business thrive.
