Internet of Things (IOT) is believed to be the Second Digital Revolution or the next industrial revolution in which manufactured and engineered products have the “digital world” completely embedded throughout them.
According to a recent study by Morgan Stanley, there are now some 14 billion objects connected to the Internet. McKinsey & Co has predicted that 80% of global manufacturers will be using IoT technologies by 2025, leading to a potential global economic uplift of $2.3 trillion in manufacturing alone.
What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
IoT is defined as adding the connection of things to the Internet, those “things” being existing products serving their main functionalities, or new products developed to serve the new IoT world. These products may come from different product categories but the underlying technology could be the same. At the same time, the growth of IoT will bring new regulations and standards nationwide/worldwide and with them the formation of new associations or technologies.
