Be it in the workplace or outside of it, the “Internet of things” has become an increasingly growing topic of conversation. The concept of IOT does not only have the potential to impact how we live, but also how we work. With the wide availability of broadband internet, the cost of connectivity has decreased, which has eventually created the storm for IOT.
But figuring out what exactly is the “Internet of things” and how it’ll impact your life along with a lot of complexities. So much of technical and policy-related conversations are happening about it, but many people are still clueless to grasp the foundation of what the heck these conversations are all about.
To put it simply, IOT is the concept of connecting any device with an off and on switch to the internet , including everything from cellphones to coffee makers, washing machines to headphones and anything else you can think of. The Internet of Things revolves around the increased machine-to-machine communications.
Built on cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors, it is virtual, mobile and instantaneous connection. The real value by IOT is created at the intersection of gathering data and leveraging it. All the information which is gathered by all the sensors in the world is not worth very much if there is an absence of infrastructure in place to analyze it in real time.
IOT provides endless opportunities and connections to take place, many of which are even out of our imagination for the time being. But not to forget, it also opens the gate for a lot of challenges. When so many devices are inter-connected, security of the information comes at stake and such threats in today’s digitized world can’t be ignored. What if someone hacks the entire system? This hot-button topic also creates a problem for the companies of storing the massive amount of data that will be produced by multiple devices and the companies will have to come up with the solution.
This is a huge and fundamental shift. When we start making things intelligent, it becomes a major engine for the creation of new products and new services. So what now? IOT possesses both sides of the coin and the best that could be done is educating ourselves about it and its impact on how we live.
By the time it entirely comes into action, just think how huge it can be and imagine the world connected with technology.
