How will the Internet of Things (IoT) impact on productivity – of different sectors
We know that lots of (mainly technology) companies are betting big on IoT – but is this investment wise?
For consumers, developments like smart thermostats, smart lighting and so on are interesting – but how compulsive a purchase are they? The ability to control my lights from my hone is pointless if I am not at home and unnecessary if I am.
Of course, I’m probably missing the point, failing to see the ‘vision’ Perhaps IoT is not a consumer-led change … perhaps it is industry that will reap the benefits.
I need to go now – and think about the brave new world. Perhaps you do too. All of the investment going on will drive change – but not necessarily in planned directions. The winners will be those that first spot the twists, turns and diversions on the road ahead.
