The relationship between the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and cloud computing creates ample opportunity for a business to harness exponential growth. It is a simple and symbiotic relationship – IoT is the source of data, big data is an analytic platform of data and cloud computing is the location for storage, scale and speed of access. Toolbox brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Unlock the Potential of IoT With Cloud Computing.

IoT has grown exponentially since it arrived on the scene in 1999 to more than 10 billion active IoT devices today, with the number expected to surpass 25 billion by 2030.

IoT and cloud computing complement one another. The possibilities of IoT devices have become virtually endless for both enterprises and consumers. For enterprises looking to reap the benefits from IoT, it is important to recognize the role that the cloud plays in IoT’s continued success. Using IoT, big data and cloud computing together means you can have successful communication, connection and transference of data between devices.
