The Internet of Things in today's world

The impact that the IoT has had on the world has been significant - and it's only getting started. Learn more about what people are saying.

Who is using IoT

The IoT is more than just a convenience for consumers. It offers new sources of data and business operating models that can boost productivity in a variety of industries.

Why It Matters?

The Internet of Things is the concept of everyday objects - from industrial machines to wearable devices - using built-in sensors to gather data and take action on that data across a network. So it's a building that uses sensors to automatically adjust heating and lighting. Or production equipment alerting maintenance personnel to an impending failure. Simply put, the Internet of Things is the future of technology that can make our lives more efficient.


Internet of Things Analytics differs from web analytics in a few fundamental ways. First of all, while the definition of "the internet of things" varies widely, it generally refers to internet-connected devices that are not computers nor cell phones: Think appliances or consumer electronics, or in more industrial applications, sensors in turbines or smart water meters. In any case, millions of internet-connected coffee makers, TVs, dog collars and house-cleaning robots are not websites. Collecting data, interactions and context on millions of geographically distributed, intermittently-connected and resource-constrained devices is hard to do because there isn't a single collection point. Instead, Tellient collects data about every individual device and combines those data streams on our server to provide a global view of product usage.
