As the Internet of Things matures, businesses in just about every existing vertical imagine the potential for an era of unprecedented innovation and industry disruption made possible by a world of connected devices. And it’s not just industry that has its eyes on the IoT. The venture capital community is expressing growing interest in the IoT, and for good reason: Estimates of the value the IoT can drive range from $300 billion to $19 trillion.
Mac Devine, director of CloudFirst Innovation and CTO of IBM’s Cloud Services Division, spoke with Data Informed about the Internet of Things. In Part 1 of our conversation, presented here, Mac describes the interest around the IoT he has observed in the venture capital community, industry verticals in which he sees the IoT having the greatest impact, and some of innovations that the IoT could enable.
