RPA and The Internet of Things
It’s a phrase you hear more and more in today’s global, technology-driven business landscape – The Internet of Things.
But what exactly is The Internet of Things? As defined most simply by the business publication Forbes, The Internet of Things is “the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other)…if it has an on and off switch then chances are it can be a part of the IoT.”
The Internet of Things is only growing as the number of connected devices grows and the amount of machine-to-machine communication increases. It’s being adopted by many industries across numerous verticals and can include, for example, wearable devices, mobile devices, industrial equipment, intelligent businesses, and even smart homes.
It’s important to understand The Internet of Things is not just another industry buzzword.
