The Internet of Things (IoT) is the collective name for the next generation of smart devices that can independently perform certain actions with a minimum of user intervention. These devices can communicate with other devices, but also with people. There are a number of areas in which the Internet of Things can be interesting for organizations. Take, for example, the possibilities that arise as soon as you make use of the volume of big data that becomes available as a result of this technology. This can be used to make practical applications that allow you to make automated decisions and improve the efficiency of processes.
