Sponsored by ComputerWeekly.com
Analyst group Quocirca proposes a basic architecture to help organisations avoid the many pitfalls of embracing the internet of things (IoT).

- The internet of everything (IoE) is a superset of the IoT and includes devices outside the organisation’s control, but that are either presenting data of use to the organisation, or where it is difficult or impossible to stop them from passing data across the organisation’s network
- Putting in place an architecture that enables a full mixed IoT/IoE strategy to be implemented will be key to how well organisations perform in the future.
- Current estimates for the number of IoE devices worldwide are around 20-50 billion by 2020, but Quocirca believes that these figures are far too low and there will be around 3-6 devices per person.
