The Intel IoT Vision
Most of the things people and businesses rely on—from cars and temperature sensors to appliances and shopping carts—rely on us to supply the intelligence that helps them function. That’s changing rapidly. The IoT is enabling a richer way of living and working by making things smarter.
At the most basic level, IoT consists of “things” that are connecting to the internet, integrating greater compute capabilities, and using data analytics to extract meaningful information. For instance, existing equipment in a factory can now share data with the cloud. By analyzing this data, the business can improve operations. Extend this across other industries and applications, and the transformative power of the IoT is clear. As more things generate a wealth of data, the IoT is accelerating the accumulation of big data stores. According to Gartner, 35ZB of data from things will generate $2 trillion in value by 2020. Today, businesses from across industries are envisioning the IoT solutions that will generate that value.
The IoT is taking shape now, but businesses looking to turn the IoT promise into bottom-line benefits face challenges. They must connect things to the cloud, integrate with existing infrastructure, and manage and analyze the data things generate—and it all needs to be secure. Intel can help.
Intel provides the building blocks for IoT solutions that deliver real value—more quickly. Connect, secure, manage, and analyze data using IoT solutions from Intel and the participants in the Intel ecosystem. Designed for new and existing environments, Intel IoT solutions can lower development time and reduce time to market.
