What is the future for Big Data, great read!
The Internet of Things has changed how we interact with our technology on a fundamental level. Gartner predicts that at least 21 billion connected "things" will exist in the Internet of Things by 2020, with data volumes generated by the IoT expected to surpass the amount of data produced by social media. The vast variety and magnitude of data generated by the IoT from mobile devices, sensors, and machine to machine (M2M) communications show no signs of slowing down, as data is constantly erupting out of everything from smart watches to sensor-loaded machinery and equipment. As this trend grows, it is no secret that all facets of daily life, from enterprise to home, will soon be internet-enabled and join the vast web of the Internet of Things.
