2020 DBTA Readers' Choice Awards: Best IoT Solution
From smart home devices to sensors in factories and medical devices, the inter-networking of items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity is enabling the collection, exchange, and analysis of data at levels never seen before.
Now poised to cross over into mainstream business use, according to McKinsey, the number of businesses that use the IoT technologies has increased from 13% in 2014 to about 25% today. And the worldwide number of IoT-connected devices is projected to increase to 43 billion by 2023, an almost threefold increase from 2018.
