The buzz: “The IoT is big news because it ups the ante: ‘Reach out and touch somebody’ is becoming ‘reach out and touch everything’.” (Parker Trewin, Senior Director of Content and Communications, Aria Systems)
We know that the Internet of Things (IoT) is all about connecting machines and devices and sensors – but connecting them to ‘What’?
How does data from the airliner – or the factory floor, or the weather station – find its way to business applications running in private or vendor-hosted clouds, to ultimately provide useful information that impacts us daily?
It’s about the end-to-end journey of the IoT data and the ‘Internet’ portion of the ‘Internet of Things.’
The experts speak.
Jason E. Sfaelos, Equinix: “Almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. Only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.” (Joe Versus the Volcano)
Ira Berk, SAP: “We owe a lot to Thomas Edison. If it wasn’t for him, we’d be watching television by candlelight.” (Milton Berle)
