Big Data and the Internet of Everything

August 8, 2013 - 9 Comments

According to a recent Cisco News article the Internet of Everything (IoE) is a multi-trillion dollar opportunity that incorporates data gathering, data processing, data analysis, data visualization, data optimization, data storage and retrieval, etc.  Data is being generated at an exponential rate and with the IoE even more data will be generated.

The companies that win in this space are going to be the ones who understand how to synthesize meaningful relationships from the ocean of data (i.e. contextually relevant relationships), how to discern new knowledge, how to act on this knowledge, and how to communicate this new knowledge based on the context of an end-user or a machine.

Big Data technologies will play a pivotal role in the IoE, and therefore provide many opportunities for innovation; those wishing to gain a better understanding of several of the technologies involved in this exciting field are encouraged to watch the following video.

  2. Hi im working on a presentation and not too sure what its going to be yet it has to invove inter networks routers or switches and good ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated

  3. Hello Michael

    Thought you might be interested in this data storage infographic

  4. Best book I ever read on the Internet of Everything was a science fiction novel that had nothing to do with talking about IOE – it just used a near-future world of IOE as the backdrop for an interesting plot.
    “Rainbow’s End” by Vernor Vinge, 2006. I highly recommend it as a light sci-fi novel, AND as an introduction to how IOE might impact everyday life.

    Disclaimer: I work for Cisco Systems, but have nothing to do with the sci-fi novel or Mr. Vinge. Just liked the book.

  5. I want to be the part of IoE.Its amazing

  6. I agree too.

  7. What a great discussion! I’m so delighted to find other people who care about this topic, which I’ve been puzzling over for a while. Thanks
    A very good looking site and very informative too.
