The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the interconnectivity between things, data and the Internet. In the “smart” world of the future, just about anything can “talk.” From bridges and seaports to pets and clothing, the use of wireless communication technology will provide tremendous amounts of data for analysis and use.
The IoT opens up possibilities for better products, better data and better marketing. But it also comes with its share of concerns over privacy, security and data storage. This Blue Paper discusses the IoT in detail as well as its benefits and issues. It also provides consideration for organizations that use or produce IoT products and services.
