The Internet of Things (IoT)

The IoT Opportunity

Cisco estimates that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected to the Internet by 2020. Yet today, more than 99 percent of things in the physical world remain unconnected. The growth and convergence of processes, data, and things on the Internet will make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before, creating unprecedented opportunities for industries, businesses, and people.

The IoT and the Internet of Everything

The IoT is the next technology transition when devices will allow us to sense and control the physical world. It's also part of something even bigger. The Internet of Everything (IoE) is the networked connection of people, process, data, and things. Its benefit is derived from the compound impact of these connections and the value it creates as "everything" comes online.

The potential value is tremendous. How much an organization can achieve depends on its ability to capture technology transitions, such as cloud, mobility, collaboration, and the Internet of Things.

With these transitions, we can turn information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, governments, and people.
