Are MBE’s Ready for the “Internet of Things’ IoT and “Big Data” Industries of the Future
Since 2008, more objects than people have been connected to the Internet via “smart” devices that help people manage their lives and communicate through cars, home, appliances, and more. These devices also collect data that impact the development of new products and services.
This year there will be 4.9 billion objects connected and that number will skyrocket to 50 billion by 2020. Imagine how the “Internet of Things” (IoT) has opened the door to endless possibilities in the U.S. marketplace.
How will the IoT change what consumers want, how goods are manufactured, and how companies re-configure their supply chains? In order to ride this next wave of groundbreaking innovation, minority-owned businesses must be ready and at the forefront of the technological frontier. Are you ready?
