How the IoT builds the way to the future - A look at the opportunities and challenges facing the Internet of Things in the future.">
When the technology world is moving to the cloud, it's hard to imagine what it would be without IoT (the Internet of Things or the connection of many different devices and the exchange of data between them). As we enjoy using our connected devices and pouring large amounts of data into this "bag" called the IoT, it has grown to gigantic proportions. Such a huge system requires high technology and serious skills to continue to function. Do we have what we need to develop, maintain, and provide IoT protection?
One of the main topics in the IoT space is the young age of technologies and services and the companies that provide them. Dealing with this "immaturity" and managing the risk it poses will be among the main challenges facing the use of IoT. In some technological areas, more skills are needed to overcome specific obstacles.
By the end of 2020, there are expected to be tens of billions of devices connected to the Internet. For this reason, technical challenges will undoubtedly increase and we will need effective technology and services to support IoT. As we move towards greater connectivity to synchronize and manage content, IoT is filled with data from around the world and from all sources.
The term "Internet of Things" was first used by Kevin Ashton in 1999 in the context of managing the flow of products and services. With the advancement of technology, the concept expands to a network of interconnected devices and other objects (e.g. buildings), which not only gather information from its environment and interacts with the material world (activation, control, management), but also thus uses existing Internet standards to provide services for information transfer, data analysis, applications, and communication. Its purpose is to make computers gather information without human intervention.
The fast and smooth exchange of information, easy access to it, and the seemingly endless capacity to increase it, as well as its usefulness for individuals and companies, create a wide range of IoT opportunities:
IoT will grow and include more and more devices and more data. At the same time, its path of development is at the very beginning and there are many obstacles to overcome, such as in the areas of data storage and security. But one thing is for sure - this phenomenon will revolutionize the world we live in. The predictions made here about the use and development of IoT are just the tip of the iceberg. Given the "fertile soil", we can boldly chart the path of innovation and invention that this new era will bring us.
