I’ve just had the honor of speaking at this year’s InfoComm conference and wanted to share with you some of the ideas I explored in depth during my session. It’d be great to hear your thoughts in response and get a conversation going … because, to me, that sort of collaboration is just what the future of digital communication is going to be about.
The way I see it, we’re moving from an “Internet of Things” to an “Internet of Everything.” The Internet of Things is the connection of the 50 billion apps and clouds and devices that join up to networks and enable some level of communication. But the Internet of Everything is about synthesizing these connections and data to transform business processes and make them accessible to people in ways that matter in the real world. The real value is in the connections—in other words, it’s about enabling truly powerful collaboration. The value of the Internet of Everything is only as good as the breadth of the people, process, data and things it can reach.
