Connected devices are essentially our physical devices being connected through a network. Our connected devices have become a complex system that is redefining business industries and communication. They have joined people and businesses globally and allowed us to share, and send data securely, quickly, and easily. By the touch of our fingertips, we can connect with the world. “Connected products have smart, connective components that allow data to be exchanged between the product and its user, manufacturer, or environment. Related IoT solutions may help you build smart factories with new functionality, greater reliability, and higher product utilization” (What is IoT) When using connected products you are more inclined to be able to maintain products, create new business, monitor the efficiency of your products, and their design as well as keeping the customers experience satisfactory and secure.
Our connected devices allow businesses to increase productivity, collect data to understand the consumer, access real-time information, automate manual tasks, build efficient systems, and save costs. We use connected devices every day, sometimes not realizing the capability and power that our devices hold. “They span everything from traditional computing hardware, such as a laptop or desktop, to common mobile devices, such as a smartphone or tablet, to an increasingly wide range of physical devices and objects. This growing list of objects includes household appliances, heating, and cooling systems, vehicles, health and fitness monitors, environmental sensors, and more. These devices, which are commonly embedded with technology such as processing chips, software, and sensors, collect data and share it with other devices and systems. Connected devices are typically monitored and controlled remotely. They connect with the internet and each other via various wired and wireless networks and protocols, such as WiFi, NFC, 3G, and 4G networks.” (What are Connected Devices – Arm)
Connected devices are transforming the way all industries and people interact with the world. They can connect globally, store data, have secure connections, monitor product efficiency, and aid in workload capacity. Connected devices have revolutionized communication and information gathering as a whole. All business industries must allow digital transformation into their business processes to remain relevant and competitive in their industry. Having updated cloud software and IoT technologies results in a better business model as well as produces more results and solutions than ever before. Connected devices have connected us to each other forever and will continue to impact and change how we communicate and do business in the future.
