Unlocking the potential of the Internet of Everything
Connected devices with artificial intelligence used to be the realm of science fiction novels and films. Today they’re integrated into billions of devices around the world. The Internet of Everything (IoT) is everywhere. And the greatest area of growth are in areas that are least visible to consumers, such as Electronic Data Interchange.
IoT focuses on connecting devices over the internet. Manufacturing, logistics, and warehousing are leading the curve when it comes to IoT adoption, and it’s easy to see how digital efficiencies are transforming those industries.
In manufacturing, connected devices are optimising and automating factory processes.
In transportation and logistics, customers are increasingly able to track orders online and route planning can be done via algorithms as opposed to manual forecasting.
Warehouses are increasingly featuring automated light & heat control settings, along with robotic inventory management systems driven by real-time demand.
Gartner are forecasting that there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020.
Forrester believe IoT to be "half-ready" with the following needed for full readiness by 2-5 years:
- Advances in data security
- Global standards for data collection
- Advanced capability to identify insights and act on them across organisations
