The Internet of Things (IoT) – Connected devices communicating with each other via the Internet – has been the buzz over recent years. The discussion and excitement of all the possibilities, has produced smarter technologies and continues a strong stride of advancements. The tech-savvy consumers know how Internet of Things impacts their world – home and work-life – but what about the impact IoT has on a business? How does the Internet of Things affect a business?

  • Businesses have an opportunity to make smarter products. Smarter products attract more customers. More customers builds business revenue.
  • Enables smarter business decisions and smarter business operations.
  • Changes the business model for a better, more connected future.
  • Opens opportunity for more engagement between a company and consumers.
  • Consumer experience gets better. Better experiences result in loyal customers, word-of-mouth advertising and the potential for future conversions – A.K.A. new customers and more “free” advertisement.

Techy visionaries spoke of a connected-world; they had a vision and they were spot on. The buzzword – connected-world – is no longer a possibility; it has been here for a while.  Smartphones, home security systems, apps, and a big list of other things prove it IoT is an integral part of the lives all over the world. IoT now drives business infrastructures; and how businesses engage with consumers.

So, the obvious question – what is a business to do? In a word, prepare.
Yep! There’s more!

Forbes’ predictions for technology strategy in 2015 aren’t so out of the box for what they’re foreseeing, and are sort of predicting themselves. They project computing will be everywhere and it all rides on the user’s experience. Isn’t that really what it’s been riding on all along? The trend of computing being everywhere, well, that’s not a surprise is it? I predicted that in 2012.

The Internet of Things (IoT), what does that even mean? Basically, if something has an on off switch then it can be an IoT. It’s something that can be controlled via the Internet. Think of cable television or satellite TV. You can log into your account and set a TV show to be recorded and literally be thousands of miles away from your television. How about starting your car via the Internet? Or, turning on home security and locking the doors? Viola, IoT is born.

I like Forbes’ idea that 3D printing is on the verge of getting cheaper. Cheaper is always a good thing when it takes less money out of a pocket and it doesn’t mean something is “cheap”. Forbes predicts this trend will have the biggest affect on the pockets of consumer applications, biomedical industry and industrial sectors. Hopefully, more money in their pockets will trickle to more money in the public’s pockets. Read it all…

Children learn by imagining and doing. The process of pretending builds skills in many essential developmental areas. Dress-up play is vital to a child’s development. According to licensed child psychologist Dr. Laurie Zelinger, “It fosters the imaginative processes, and allows for play without rules or script. Dress up allows for experimentation, role play and fantasy.“
