It’s a new world full of opportunity- are you ready? Envision in just five years, multi-billions of devices will be connected to a web of intelligent systems and services that touch our lives every day.

Imagine what we can create together In today’s rapidly evolving marketplace, intelligence is critical to stay ahead. Soon intelligence will be everywhere. Infused to everything around us and to everything we do. It will bring new insights and discoveries. Redefine every industry, business and experience. And the market disruption it triggers will create vast opportunities for those that embrace it. It’s time to reimagine what’s possible by creating new products and services across industries. Immense transformation is already occurring as a result of connecting sensors and devices and harnessing the resulting omnipresent data to improve our lives.

Smarter everything is closer than you think The Internet of Things (IoT) is a means to significantly transform industries and grow business. However, I believe IoT can accomplish so much more. As a strategic market development leader, I am fascinated by the potential for IoT to solve some of today’s global challenges: inefficient transportation and city services, sustainable development, energy consumption, aging population and other health matters, climate change, water crisis, pollution, food scarcity, and fundamentally competing in a "new era" of technology and globalization - just to name a few.

“New” thinking to solve global challenges I believe these issues will be the true drivers of tomorrow’s IoT solutions. But we can’t do things as we’ve done them in the past. That’s why I’m captivated by working in the IoT industry. I am seeking organizations committed to accelerate and unleash the power of IoT. I am passionate about discovering smarter ways to use IoT to transform our lives and our world. The problems in our future will require “new” thinking to solve and a “new” level of mindfulness, but with that “new” thinking… together we will manifest extraordinary things and experiences for all of us.

State of the IoT 2020: 12 billion IoT connections, surpassing non-IoT for the first time

(Updated: 1/6/2021) Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the market for the Internet of Things continues to grow. In 2020, for the first time, there are more IoT connections (e.g., connected cars, smart home devices, connected industrial equipment) than there are non-IoT connections (smartphones, laptops, and computers). Of the 21.7 billion active connected devices worldwide, 11.7 billion (or 54%) will be IoT device connections at the end of 2020. By 2025, it is expected that there will be more than 30 billion IoT connections, almost 4 IoT devices per person on average.

Stop wasting time! Don't muck around. You aren't being OUTSOLD, you are being OUT-MARKETED! Succeed by SMART MARKETING, not by chance!
