There is widespread agreement that the Internet of Things will be a transformative factor in the business use of information. The prospect of billions of connected devices promises to transform home activities, transportation, industrial operations, and many other aspects of our lives.
The bad news about the IoT is that we have a lot of work to do before we are ready for it. We’ve got to up our games considerably with regard to data management and analytics if we’re going to capture, store, access and analyze all the IoT data that will be flowing around the Internet. The good news (in addition to its potential) is that most organizations have a few years to get better at these capabilities before the real onslaught hits. The sensor devices, IoT data standards, and data management platforms are still in their relatively early stages, and no customer, business partner, or CEO could reasonably expect that you could tame all that IoT data today.

The new chief executive of Cisco has made the case for the networking giant as a key player in building, securing, and making sense of the nascent Internet of Things.
Cisco predicts that the 15 billion devices connected to the internet now will rise to 25 billion – or maybe even 50 billion – by 2020, as the Internet of Things gathers pace. Internet traffic will triple over the same time as a result, and Cisco expects that around 40 percent of mobile internet traffic will be machine-to-machine communication.
All of this will create big changes for how enterprises manage data, said Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins: instead of hauling all that information back to a data center, some of the analysis of that data will be distributed across the network.
Speaking at an event at Cisco’s headquarters in San Jose, California, his first major presentation since taking over as CEO, Robbins said: “You need a very intelligent network infrastructure to make that happen. So now we will have not just data centers but remote centers of data. We can’t always depend on taking the data back to the data center and acting on it because it has a shelf-life, it’s perishable, the value only exists for a short period of time.”
