Which technologies are important for the Internet of Things?
For the implementation of the Internet of Things in the various areas of industry, it is essential to know about the mode of action, advantages and disadvantages, and above all the interaction of the individual technologies. Only with the combination of different IoT technologies can an efficient realization of a digital enterprise development be successfully implemented. The following is an overview of some IoT technologies that – according to forecasts – will be increasingly used in the future.
- Sensors and connectivity
- Edge- vs. Cloud-Computing
- Security and Privacy
- Artificial Intelligence
- IoT Analytics
- Wireless technologies
- Microprocessors & -controllers
IoT is the engine of digital transformation
Digital transformation opens up great opportunities for a better quality of life, new business models and more eﬃcient economic activity through the use of new technologies.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of eight future technologies (The Essential 8) that will make the digital transformation tangible, will have a decisive impact and will have the greatest influence on value creation in the medium term.
IoT is understood to be a network of physical devices connected by sensors and software via the Internet to exchange data. The wide range of possible applications covers almost every industry, from networked production and energy supply to networked buildings and cities, networked agriculture and healthcare.
