IoT Big Data
The “Internet of Things” (IoT) – internet-connected devices, appliances, systems and sensors – is poised for explosive growth. No longer confined only to computing devices, the internet now uses mobile devices – including phones, smartphones and tablets – so that ordinary “things” like cars, TVs, refrigerators and thermostats themselves now can be “internet enabled”. Internet connectivity will continue to expand, allowing for better analysis of disparate sources of data, giving new insights and informing decision-making processes. The key will be applying Big Data technologies and techniques to the massive amounts of data that will be generated from this mass of internet-connected “things”.
