IoT is a mean through which one can connect any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). Through IoT you will be able to connect multiple devices to internet and to each other like cellphones, washing machines, Microwave, telephones, smart watches etc.

According to statistics, we will have well over 20 billion connected devices by 2020. You can take IoT as huge web which will interconnect things including people.

The relationship in IoT will be in these forms:

  • People-people

  • People-things

Security is touted as the biggest threat as of now as with billion devices connected together can lead to mass hacking. Another problem which may arise is to save the massive amount of data and to track, analyze and make sense of the vast amounts of data that will be generated.

Projections for IoT:

Here are few future projections by research firms and IT giants around the globe for Internet of things:

  • 26 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020
  • $6 trillion will be spent on IoT solutions over the next 5 years” – Business Insider
  • Global demand for IOT developers will stand at 4.5 million by the year 2020”- Accenture
  • The average annual salary for an IOT Architect is $179,000” – Indeed Salary Search
  • Due to the Internet of Things, jobs in the IT industry are projected to grow by 50% before 2020- Cisco
