Benefits of Internet of Things to businesses
Sometimes referred to as the IoT industry, the benefits of IoT for the business depend on the specific implementation, but it is important for businesses to have access to more data about their own products and their own internal system and the possibility of greater change.
Manufacturers are adding sensors to product components so they can retransmit data about how they work. This can help companies detect when a component is likely to fail and exchange it before it causes damage. Companies can also use the data generated by these sensors to make their systems and supply chains more efficient because they will have much more accurate data about what is really happening out.
“With the introduction of comprehensive, real-time data collection and analysis, production systems can become significantly more agile,” McKinsey consultant said.
The use of IoT for business can be divided into two segments: industry-specific services such as sensors in power plants or real-time location devices for health care; and IoT devices that can be used in all industries, like smart air conditioners or security systems.
Although industry-specific products will be available soon, by 2020, Gartner predicts that cross-industry devices will reach 4.4 billion units, while vertical-specific devices will reach. 3.2 billion units. Consumers buy more devices, businesses spend more: the analyst team said that while consumer spending on IoT devices was about $725 billion last year, businesses spent more. for IoT to reach 964 billion dollars. By 2020, the spending of businesses and consumers on IoT hardware will reach nearly 3 trillion dollars.
According to IDC, the three industries expected to spend the most on IoT in 2018 are manufacturing ($189 billion), transportation ($85 billion) and utilities ($73 billion). Manufacturers will focus largely on improving the efficiency of their processes and tracking their assets, while two-thirds of IoT spending by transport will shift to freight monitoring, followed by fleet management.
IoT spending in the utility industry will be governed by the smart grid for electricity, gas and water. IDC sets spending on cross-industry IoT fields such as connected vehicles and smart buildings, at nearly $92 billion in 2018.
What are the benefits of the Internet of Things to consumers?
IoT promises to make our environment – our homes and offices and vehicles – smarter, easier to measure and better. Smart speakers like Amazon’s Echo and Google Home make music streaming easier, set timers or get information. The home security system makes it easy to keep track of what’s going on inside and outside or to watch and talk to visitors. Meanwhile, smart air conditioners can help us warm our home before we go back and smart light bulbs can make it look like we are at home even when we’re out.
Looking further, sensors can help us understand how noisy or polluting our environment is. Self-driving cars and smart cities can change the way we build and manage public spaces.
However, many of these innovations can have a big impact on our personal privacy.
For consumers, the smart home is probably the place where they are able to come into contact with things that have an internet connection and it’s an area where big tech companies (especially Amazon, Google, and Apple) are competing fiercely.
The most obvious of these are smart speakers like Amazon’s Echo, but there are also smart plugs, light bulbs, cameras, thermostats, and smart refrigerators that are rated poorly. They can help older people stay independent and stay home longer by making it easier for families and carers to communicate and follow. It also can help save energy such as cutting heating costs.
