IoT is just Internet again

Friday Seminar
Date and time: September 23, 2016 14.30 - 16.00
Place: EIT Digital Open Area
Speaker: Magnus Melander

IoT is nothing – not a market, not an industry and not a solution. Internet of Things is nothing more than adding Things to people and organizations already at Internet. The key difference is that ignorance will not be an acceptable excuse this time. The development of IoT follows the one we experienced when Internet arrived: connectivity – operational values – strategic values. But since Internet already is in place the development of IoT is much faster then Internet for people and organizations.
