Ready or not - here comes the data
Connected devices are making their way from business and industry to the mass market. We’ll be seeing more and more compact, connected sensors and actuators in everyday consumer electronics, household appliances and city infrastructures. So, if you’re low on milk, you can get an alert from your refrigerator as you travel by the store on the way home and before lifting a nearly empty carton at dinner.
If you’re a loyal customer when you pick up that carton of milk at the store, you might not even need to check out. Sensors will identify what you have taken from the shelf and automatically charge your account when you leave the store with the item.
We expect to see massive increases in data being generated by these devices pouring into our networks and systems. Already, billions of information events are generated every second, ready to be processed, analyzed and shared between devices and with people, to improve lives.
The devices are ready. The network is in place. And the torrent of data has started. Are you ready?
