so what is the internet of things?

The term iOT encompasses everything connected to the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that "talk" to each other.  The internet of things is made up of devices - from simple sensors to smartphones and wearables - connected together. 

By combining these devices with automated systems, it is possible to gather information, analyze it and create an action to help someone with a particular task, or learn from a process.  iOT allows devices on closed private internet connections to communicate with others and iOT brings those networks together.  

It gives the opportunity for devices to communicate not only within close silos but across different networking types and creates a much more connected world.

how big is the internet of things?

Big and getting bigger - there are already more connected things than people in the world. 

One study estimates 35 percent of US manufacturers are using data from smart sensors within their set ups already.  

iOT offers consumers an opportunity to be more efficient in how they do things, saving time, money and often emissions in the process.  The quality and scope of the data across the Internet of Things generates an opportunity for much more contextualized and responsive interactions with devices to create a potential for change
