Internet VS IoT
Internet = product of people, by people, for people, is about people
IoT = Physical world(with ability to sense & interact) seamlessly interact with digital world(using internet). By things, for all(people & things).
IoT already exist since early as 1974 but why its booming now? Due this 3 factors are more feasible compare to yesteryear. Because IoT sensors are increasingly available, affordable and easily scalable even plug & play. And internet connections are reaching out to all corners of the world in rapid speed.
In short IoT changes a standalone machine to a “Connected Good”. Which not only can do its pre-programed task but also gather information for various purpose from basic maintenance of the machine to holistic planning & solution in a given area or industry.
By 2030, 50 Billion devices are expected to be a connected goods. Here comes the SAP to tap into IoT market & give competitive advantage to its existing & new customers by providing a platform to facilitate companies with connected goods to go digital by intelligently connecting people, things and business.
