What is Internet of Things or IoT?

In simple terms, it is a network of connected things. It is the evolution of everyday used things which are laced with technology like sensors, software and connectivity enabling them to exchange data without any human or machine intervention. The convergence of wireless technologies, electromechanical systems and the Internet has made this possible.

What it means to businesses?

IoT is making things and businesses smarter than ever. It adds actionable intelligence to devices. It creates a network of connected devices which can easily interact with each other and with their environment without any external help. These devices keep collecting data from the environment. Smart use of this data can help create newer opportunities and foster innovation.

How does IoT benefit businesses?
