The internet of things is fast becoming an intrinsic part of our lives and society. Hays’ Steve Weston asks what app developers can do to take advantage of that.
The internet of things (IoT) is changing every single aspect of our lives at a rapid pace. It is connectivity on a worldwide scale – and this presents an incredibly exciting business opportunity.
IoT’s growth rate is equally incredible, as Gartner predicts that by 2020 – less than three years’ time – there will be more than 26bn connected devices. This shared connectivity means we as human beings, and our devices, will be far more connected than ever before.
This represents a huge opportunity for your organisation, but only if you have developers with the right capabilities and skills to exploit it.
