The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next technology revolution. With less than 1% of "things" in the physical world connected to the Internet, there is an incredible opportunity to connect the unconnected and change the world - impacting a range of IT companies as well as businesses in such markets as transportation, manufacturing, utilities, and oil and gas. What will it take to scale IoT solutions and the ecosystem to support it and to realize the true value of the Internet of Everything?
