Understand business opportunities of and technical requirements for the Internet of Things

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) consists of a growing global network of smart devices, ranging from mobile phones to motor vehicles to domestic appliances to utilities meters and beyond. Increasingly, these devices use application programming interfaces (APIs) to expose the data they collect and transmit, for reuse in a variety of complementary applications.

But how can all these connected devices interact efficiently? What are the security risks of connecting all these devices to the Internet and exposing their inner workings via APIs? Does IoT create new business opportunities and – if so – how do we capitalize on these opportunities and mitigate any risks?

This eBook uses ideas from some of history’s greatest theoretical physicists (Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr) to explain the way enterprise IT has evolved in recent years. For each of these great thinkers, it explores what they said, why this is applicable to IT and how organizations can use this to benefit from IoT.
