CW500: Rob McNamara, SmartGrid GBDate: Jul 30, 2013
The impact on the enterprise of internet-connected devices is considerable, as well as the economic value - according to research, the internet of things (IoT) will be a market worth about $14.4tn by 2022. The possibilities of the IoT are broad, from smart cities and automatic exchange of information to energy saving through smart grids. But what does it mean for IT leaders and how should they prepare for the changes that IoT will bring?
In this CW500 Club video, Rob McNamara, executive director at SmartGrid GB, talks to Computer Weekly editor in chief Bryan Glick about one of the highest profile IoT applications – smart energy grids and the UK’s smart meter roll-out.
