How the Internet of Things and Smart Services Will Change Society
via openSAP
The Internet of Things will forever change our personal and professional lives. By 2020, there will be 50 billion connected devices communicating through the Internet. Devices can range from connected coffee makers, cars, or sensors on cattle to connected machines in a production plant. These devices provide data that offers new insights, and as they talk to each other, they develop their own intelligence and can advise customers about optimal ways to put them to use. This will revolutionize consumer habits and the way we do business.
