Internet of Things (IoT) – Opportunity and Challenge

Our physical world is about to be impacted by digitalization. Big data drawn from sensory information and translated into actions triggered by applications, belonging to the “remotely Track, Route, Command and Control (TRCC)” suite of applications introduced with IoT, are about to profoundly impact the world around us and our digital and personal life. As individuals and enterprises we need to understand, become aware and define strategies to benefit and cope with this profound change.
