Steve Banker: The Internet of Things Presents Challenges that Have Not Been Fully Addressed

Factory floor automation systems have used huge amounts of sensor data for decades to improve quality and throughput. Depending on the industry, the sensor data can be related to temperature, humidity, pressure, machine vibration, leakage, and many other things. Now, of course, modern automation systems are internet enabled and these systems can now be called Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Stuart Levine: Are You Prepared for the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things can bring remarkable benefits as well as substantial challenges to today’s ever-changing business environment. No industry will remain untouched, as physical assets are equipped with sensors to create interconnected electronic network systems that record, process and transmit information. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates the IoT will produce $11.1 trillion annually in global economic value.

ICT 2016: This year's theme “Expansion to Small” aims to draw research community’s attention to the enormous anticipated expansion of communication systems through small architectures and devices.

Matt Goddard: The 2 Phases of Internet of Things and Marketing

In August, it was reported that 51 percent of marketing executives expect the Internet of Things (IoT) “to revolutionize marketing by 2020,” according to a study by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
