IoT means connected objects and devices (aka “things”) equipped with sensors, software, and other technologies that allow them to transmit and receive data – to and from other things. It’s possible to collect all the information (Big Data), analyse it and create an action to help someone with a particular task, or learn from a process. So basically, IoT involves an entire ecosystem of various tools and services that must come together to deliver a complete solution.
