It is estimated that there are more than 23 billion connected devices worldwide. And it is expected that by 2025 this figure will exceed 75 billion. The new oil of the 21st century is the data. Because the information is giving rise to a new economy where its role is central. This is something that is said and repeated a while ago, however, we are still at the beginning of this movement: only 10% of the data that is collected through the connected equipment is used properly, either to monetize products and services or to take forecasts or generate savings.
When talking about connected devices or the Internet of Things (IoT), not only do you have to think about cell phones or appliances. Factories, transportation, logistics and public services are the areas that will lead the IoT industry.
The flow of information that is generated daily is overwhelming. Because cars, light poles, security cameras, telephones and refrigerators (basically every device that is connected to the network), produce an immense digital universe: according to the IDC consultant, by 2025 will be produced 180 zettabytes of data daily.
The Internet of Things implies several elements: on the one hand, the sensors that allow measuring and transmitting data, then the storage in the cloud and finally the processing of that information, to then make decisions and make predictions.
