IOT Driving Social Innovations
We have come a long way from 2014 where the world has been moving from the Internet of Things (IoT) to the Internet of Everything (IoE). The Internet of Things or Everything (IoT or IoE) has the potential to digitally transform our very existence in more ways than any of us could have imagined five years back. Why “Everything?” “Everything” because it brings together or connects people, data, process and things to turn information (insights) into actions that create pristine capabilities, elegant experiences and unparalleled economic opportunities for businesses and individuals.
The intent of this article is to outline initiatives across industries which have prompted significant visible social changes and where IoT has been the prima facie evidence of such a change. We will also look at the basic technology and solution building blocks that constitute the DNA of this IoT or IoE backbone and its enabling services.
