IoT: Its Im­pact and the Im­por­tance of Test­ing

IoT is the next rev­o­lu­tion which is swiftly trans­form­ing elec­tronic prod­ucts. Users are fas­ci­nated and in­formed through In­ter­net, hence it can­not be over­looked or ig­nored

Be­fore go­ing in to the de­tails, let’s un­der­stand what has set the pace for this new tech­nol­ogy. In­creased pen­e­tra­tion of broad­band in­ter­net which is widely avail­able, de­crease in costs for con­nec­tions and de­vices, in­crease in the wi-fi avail­abil­ity or ca­pa­bil­ity de­vices and sen­sors built into them, tech­nol­ogy costs are go­ing down, surge in smart phone us­age, dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion across the spheres and the im­pact th­ese are cre­at­ing to a hu­man in terms of set­ting speed, re­duced costs and bet­ter econ­omy. All the above are cre­at­ing a mo­men­tum for In­ter­net of Things (IoT).

So now let’s un­der­stand about IoT, it is the net­work­ing of phys­i­cal ob­ject through em­bed­ded sen­sors, ac­tu­a­tors and de­vices that col­lect and trans­mit in­for­ma­tion about the ob­ject. Com­put­ers, ve­hi­cles, ma­chin­ery, gad­gets, smart­phones, just about ev­ery­thing can be con­nected and made to talk to each other with­out hu­man in­ter­ven­tion.

Need­less to say, IoT is rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the way we op­er­ate our busi­ness, ir­re­spec­tive of the in­dus­try or ge­og­ra­phy. McKin­sey Global In­sti­tute re­search states that IoT can have an eco­nomic im­pact of $6.2 tn by 2025. Ac­cord­ing to Cisco, the eco­nomic value added by the ‘In­ter­net of Ev­ery­thing’ will be close to $19 tn by 2020. HOW DOES IT IM­PACT YOU?
