How will IoT change your life, at home and at work?
IoT will change the lives of a lot of people in many different ways – in everything that you do, in essence. Think about when you wake up in the morning: when your alarm rings it will automatically start the coffee maker in the kitchen. When your coffee machine goes on it will automatically heat up your car because it knows that in 20 minutes you’ll be heading to work. Once you get there, if you have a hot-desk system, you’re going to know which desk is free, as well as have real time information from your assets that you’re working on in your company and your customers.
When you leave work your telephone will automatically tell your home to prepare for your arrival, maybe dimming the lights and switching on the music. Then, of course, your fridge is going to be stocked with the food you’ve ordered, automatically of course. Those are just a few examples of the things that will impact your life. Over the next three to five years there will be huge changes in home environments and that’s going to really show that IoT is no longer just something we’re talking about. It’s actually happening on a day-to-day basis.
I love the area of IoT. The very simple reason behind that is not only are we helping lots of customers become better at what they do, making sure that not only are they going to survive into the future, they’re going to thrive. And we’re also making the world a better place. That is really why I love what I do.
