The IoT generates data
The Internet of Things is a concept that illustrates that people are not the only entities connected to networks – things are too, like physical robots, machines, vehicles, drones, and household appliances. Sensors are used to gather data or to adapt the behavior of devices depending on the situation or place.
IoT devices generate large amounts of data and the number of devices and sensors continues to grow at an increasing pace. Streaming data from operations, transactions, sensors and IoT devices is valuable – if the data are understood and used.
