By 2020, some 50 to 250 billion ‘things’ – from laptops to smartphones, cars to buildings, health diagnostics to security systems – will all be communicating, sharing data and providing real-time information over the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT).
The IoT and Big Data are the Mega Trends – the generators and analysers of a multitude of data. They’re the essence of a ‘digital world’ and, according to many analysts, the future of all our interactions.
In this report we explore the practicalities of unleashing the Mega Trends as we uncover the daily motivations, opportunities and barriers organisations deal with as they get to grips with these critical technologies.
