Internet of things revolves around machine communication, cloud computing and network of data gathering sensors. So what’s the buzz about? They say that it’s going to make everything in our lives “smart”.

We now have sensors all over the world monitoring and tracking all sorts of data, for collecting the data we have cloud based apps translating into intelligence and communicating with the machines on the ground. So what are the advantages? Which industries would this affect?

It would be an entire shift. When we start making things intelligent, it’s going to be a major engine for creating new products and new services.

Of all the technology trends that are taking place right now, perhaps the biggest one is the Internet of Things; it’s the one that’s going to give us the most disruption as well as the most opportunity over the next five years.
