About the Internet of Everything
The world is moving beyond stand-alone devices into a new era where everything is connected. The Internet of Everything (IoE) is the interconnection of any electronic computing devices with the existing internet infrastructure. IoE brings together people, process, data, and things. Information extracted from these networked connections creates new capabilities, richer experiences and a huge economic opportunity. The IoE will drive product innovations such as smart TVs, connected cars, wearables and mobile health. It will create a consumption model around ‘everything as a service’ and it will drive new industry solutions in nearly every sector.
