The AtoZ of IoT till date
IoT is an emerging topic in the industry. It’s nothing but a network of ‘smart’ devices that connect and communicate via the Internet. Smart devices are anything that connects to the Internet, from appliances to manufacturing equipment, from locks and security cameras to connected cars.
In 2015, nearly 10,000 connected devices were only availed, now in 2018, we are have almost 30,000 connected devices. In 2025, we are expecting 70,000 connected devices will be made.
According to the analysis, IoT will be an 11.1 Trillion Dollar Market by 2025.

Privacy in IoT
IoT devices collect vast amounts of data, which creates concern over the confidentiality, privacy, and integrity of business data. Ensure to use IoT devices that provide transparency on their data collection policies. It is important to understand what information is being gathered, how long it is kept, and what it’s used for, such as marketing research or customer service.
