The Internet of Things (IoT) technology has changed the way business and individuals live and work in their daily lives. And it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “IoT Use Cases: Internet of Things Applications Evolve.

The IoT has impacted industrial operations, manufacturing units, healthcare centers, government offices, educational institutes, and businesses all over the world. They are able to gather and organize data from diverse sources, analyze it, make predictions, and perform modeling – all in real time.

What does the future hold for IoT? It is possible that there is a future where our lives are completely controlled by a network of connected devices rendering instant access to data and insights that aid decision making. It is not that far away. In another 5-10 years the telecommunications infrastructure can make that happen, and more. It is almost a certainty that our lives will evolve from data-driven to become informed-decision driven.
