Internet of Things (IoT), Machine to Machine (M2M) and Big Data Analytics Training

Training Overview

The emerging paradigm of Internet of Things (IoT) has created both new smart services and economic opportunities for industries, businesses and communities. The IoT technology is revolutionizing the smart healthcare sector, energy sector, smart cities, smart transportation systems, smart security sectors, and e-governance systems by taking connectivity, data mining and communication to the next level. It is predicted that by 2020, about 7.6 billion people will be interconnected via 50 billion devices which is a good indication of worldwide diffusion of things and data connected to the internet via IoT technology. According to business analysts, IoT technology will lead to an economic growth of 4.6 trillion dollars in the Global Public Sector by 2020.

Due to unlimited opportunities for IoT entrepreneurships and businesses, a huge number of small and medium sized business owners and entrepreneurs have already welcomed the gold rush for IOT worldwide. Also due to the emergence of enormous open source IoT and M2M platforms, the development of IOT systems is quite cost effective and worthy to start the IOT businesses.
