In an age of hyper-connectivity, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the basis for a booming sector in which countless innovators provide software and hardware for everything from intelligent homes and cars to medical devices and manufacturing.

By 2025, forecasters predict, the IoT industry will hit between $1 trillion and $3 trillion in revenue due to a shift from mere connectivity to IoT-powered applications, platforms and services. 

As tech pioneer Kevin Ashton so succinctly put it, “The IoT integrates the interconnectedness of human culture — our 'things' — with the interconnectedness of our digital information system — 'the Internet.'"
