The Internet of Things
I found this really interesting article on computerworld about the Internet of Things by Nicholas D. Evans:
‘Perhaps the key takeaway from the impact of the IoT on existing trends such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud is the powerful combination and convergence of these trends and the way they mutually reinforce one another to create even higher levels of business value and differentiation. As organizations plan their IT-enabled business strategies over the next three years, it will be important to account for this combination of trends, including the IoT, in both the master IT architecture and in the various digital transformation efforts that aim to redesign business processes and business models to take advantage of these trends in compelling new ways for customers, citizens and employees.’
To me, this is a really important trend to think about, as it affects so many differnt areas and will enable new business processes. What will be the future when we have e.g. much more machine-to-machine communication?
