Understanding and applying data lies at the heart of digital business transformation. Data can reveal reason, rationale, and purpose – explaining not only who, what, when, and where regarding customer behavior and business operations, but also the why. Managed well, data can be the cornerstone for business success.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly emerging as the leading source of data and business intelligence. It’s broadly defined as a network of internet-connected objects that collect and exchange data using embedded sensors.
According to Business Insider, IoT is “disrupting businesses, governments, and consumers and transforming how they interact with the world. Companies are going to spend almost $5 trillion on the IoT in the next five years – and the proliferation of connected devices and massive increase in data has started an analytical revolution.”1
