The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a vast number of connected devices that can share data and complete tasks. IoT applications, industrial machines, medical devices and more connected devices are affecting the world around us. For instance, connected devices collect data and sometimes act on it like a smart thermostat or lifesaving ventilator.
Real-world Internet of Things examples range from smart home devices that adjust the temperature and lighting to a smart factory that monitors industrial machines and robots to look for problems, to a hospital enabling doctors to check on patients’ vitals over video when they have a communicable disease.
Increasingly companies are looking to future proof apps and leverage big data in critical business decisions. Quiet Strategy helps organizations architect and implement cloud-based backend systems to complete these goals. For instance, data lakes allow organizations to capture all events from IoT ecosystems. Companies are realizing even if IOT devices have unused data points today, these inputs could prove invaluable in the future as features are developed, Ai improves and big data drives more and more decisions. Let our experts architect and design systems that empower your dataflow into the future.
The Internet of Things in Today’s World
Today, we live in a world where there are more IoT connected devices than humans. IoT devices range from wearables like smartwatches to RFID inventory tracking tags. IoT connected devices communicate via private networks, natively across the internet or cloud-based platforms such as AWS or Azure. In effect, these real-time insights gleaned from IoT collected data are fueling digital transformation. As a result, The Internet of Things promises many positive changes for health and safety, business operations, industrial performance, and global environmental and humanitarian issues.
The Internet of Things has already had significant effects on our “smart” world. Today’s IoT is affecting our lives in profound ways that are pushing the boundaries of current machine learning. As the volume and variety of big data streaming from IoT expands and analytics technologies evolve, we gain even great insight and control over our environments like never before.
