Importance of Internet of Things IoT

Gone are the days when apple and blackberry were just fruits, now they are much more than that. Was life much easier in 90s or now or in days to come? Well we all may have different answers to that but we have to admit that we all are so much addicted to modern technologies that we can't think of living without them anymore.

Internet of things may sound new concept but it's not. It's just a sweet combination of modern technologies which are already around us. IoT is about connecting our physical things with internet. We are living in an environment where there is no room for a product that can't be connected to internet. That's why there is hardly anything that can't be listed under the umbrella of IoT. For IoT industry, information is currency over which its whole empire will stand. We have enormous information available around us. Our mobile phones, credit cards, laptops generates enormous information every second. IoT will use this information to revolutionize everything, from how we manage things to how we make decisions. If you don't know about this technology you are already too late.

The biggest benefit of IoT is that we don't need any major change in our current infrastructure. As I said earlier, information is already floating around and the enterprises will use this information to launch new products.

IoT concept is welcomed by industry as this idea of smart connectivity will help in cutting down cost of production, making business analysis simple and at the same time it will increase industry revenues by improving their processes in product development. With IoT product manufacturers can get real time feedback of their product in use by their customers. This technology will eliminate gap between manufacturer and customer. A car manufacturer will now instantly see his manufacturing faults in his cars at the time of accident.

We know today most of world population is living in cities. Most of world large cities problem is traffic management. With IoT, we can see where main traffic congestion is, so we can make efficient decision on re-routing traffic to different roads for eliminating congestion and making traveling easier for peoples.

Smart thermostat installed at your home will no longer be maintaining your home temperature in your presence, but they will also know whether you are at home or out. It will also set the temperature before your arrival at home. Similarly smart buildings will know how many employees are on job today, how often the rest rooms need cleaning and chefs will be benefited with useful information in preparing lunch for exact no of people.

In health care it will benefit hospital authorities as well as patients. As only serious patients which need proper medication will be admitted in hospitals, while ordinary patients or people with minor health issues will be monitored at their homes. Your mobile phone can turn into you cardiac monitor and will generate an interrupt in case it senses your heart beats are not normal. It will automatically call for ambulance, while at same time it will tell you to set down on chair and take deep breath or recommend some other first aid.

With everything around you is being monitored your privacy and security of things are the main areas which can be attacked or hacked but at same time it opens new door for more innovation in these areas. So that we may continue our private communication in a public world.

Advantages of IoT are enormous. Nobody can predict where we will be standing in next ten year but one thing is certain that our world will be more connected in days to come and will create more and more Big Data projects for IT industry and situation will get worse if we don't have adequate work force to work on such projects.

These are just few benefits of IoT. There isn't any industry on earth which can't be affected with this technology. In fact IoT is also for industries that are yet to be discovered. We expect IoT will remove complexities from our lives and make this world more better place for living for generations to come. It will be a smart world.
