With gigantic volumes of data, in an increasingly connected and metric environment, the “internet of things” has gained importance with frightening speed. Whether in simple systems or the most complex and intricate systems, internet of things (IoT) has proven to be a valuable technology for the collection, management and rational use of information.
Taking as one of the driving forces behind the digital transformation, by pushing and sustaining innovation processes in all areas, with security and scalability, the Internet of Things will have no less than 34 billion connected devices by 2020, in a number that can be revised upwards briefly.
Why is this technology so attractive? What benefit does it bring to the business? In this new world we are living, with intelligent, liquid ecosystems, 24 x 7 – something we insist on mentioning whenever possible – avoiding failures, having redundancies and knowing how to prioritize what is needed is fundamental. That’s why IoT has grown to – and will still grow – a lot!
Is not it cool to collect the data right in the cloud? Is it not sensational and infinitely more intelligent to measure everything, but only to record what is really important, what actually brings something new or authentic insights?
We can avoid a lot of noise and waste of time by managing, from the source, what is really determinant in specific areas, contributing to the creation of so-called data marts: data repositories aimed at directed responses. Bingo!
If your business wants to enter the 21st century – if it has not already done so – IoT is one of the topics that you and your team need to consider in order to optimize their structure and amplify results.
