The Value of Connections
The world is becoming more connected
The number of things connected to the Internet will likely reach 50 billion by 2020, and probably more*. This next generation of the Internet - called the Internet of Things (‘IoT’) - is growing fast.
The hyperconnected era will change how we create business and social value. The combination of the IoT and big data will enable new ways of creating value. They bring the potential for a huge positive impact to the wellbeing of people and global economy.
