We have all heard of the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT applies to physical objects that we use, such as computers, cars, mobile phones and other everyday devices. A white paper from Cisco predicts that by 2020, the number of internet-connected devices will reach a staggering 50 billion globally. A newer trend being coined by Cisco is the “Internet of Everything” or IoE.
The IoE extends the definition of IoT and includes people, processes, data and things, which is pretty much everything. IoE includes a level of hyper-connectedness for anything and everything that connects to the internet, such as applications, data and Application Program Interfaces (API). First National Technology Solutions (FNTS) already is helping businesses manage and integrate all connections that IoE currently includes.
