Systems of Things: The building blocks for the next internet revolution
The promise of the connected world we live in is an alluring one. Someday, we will be healthier because our doctors will have access to all the data they need about our health. Our vehicles and appliances will monitor themselves and will let us know when it is time to service them. We will never have to make a decision without the data we need to make smart decisions.
Thanks to the so-called Internet of Things, that day is coming sooner than you think. We all know there are more connected devices then people in the world today. By 2020, it is estimated there will be 50 billion connected devices globally. However, businesses and society will not benefit from connected devices if there are no systems in place to gather, analyse and gain insights from the massive volumes of data generated by these connected devices.
