If you referred to the Internet of Things a decade ago, people would have no idea what you were talking about. The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a relatively new concept, but understanding it will be helpful to current businesses. If you’re not sure what it’s all about, keep reading as we simplify the IoT.
What exactly is it?
Essentially, the Internet of Things is the connection of all different types of everyday devices tied to the Internet, sharing information between devices and creating data for decision making. It basically applies to just about every kind of electronic device out there, and the number of “things” is constantly growing.
Why would it be important to my business?
More and more devices connect to the Internet and behavior is monitored and tracked. Information about how, when, why, and what devices are used for is fed back to companies for a variety of uses. It’s important to know how information is shared and used if it comes from your business devices, and there’s opportunity to gather useful information about your customers and their behavior as they use their devices.
