Will Your Business Exist in the Era of Internet of Things?

As an entrepreneur, there is always that feeling of promise that you have as you begin your business. You are full of hope and full of dreams of it one day becoming successful and that if there are obstacles or challenges that might arise, they will be met with the stubbornness of a donkey. Pretty much how a parent feels when they look at their child growing.

Many at times you might find yourself in doubt or crying with your cries sounding like how a donkey brays whenever you get into a tough situation. However, you remain motivated and firm and like a donkey kick your way through the obstacles ahead of you. Believe me, I would never wish a donkey’s kick on anyone, even my worst enemy.

Picture this, see how vicious your hand swings to swat at a mosquito… However, in this case the roles are reversed, with you being the mosquito and the kicks from the donkey your hand. Even though you lack wings, trust me, you will be flying all the same.

More often than not a little change in your strategy is what might be needed to take you through. Lack of it however, confines you to the continuous brays of a donkey and the endless baths you will make in sand due to frustrations. While you are stuck there the rest of your competition that just like you were donkeys slowly graduate into zebras and eventually horses.

Naturally a donkey has kinky hair, the little that it has anyway but a horse if you are lucky enough to ask any of your female friends has enviable hair. I am pretty sure they might give anything to swap that with the Brazilian things they put on their heads.

Brazilian you might ask, yes Brazilian. I too was shocked when I found out that a Brazilian can be carried around effortlessly by our beautiful women and not side by side but on their heads to be precise. The Brazilian also enjoys an occasional pat a sign that the Brazilian’s visa has expired and needs to be changed. But let me stop here before ladies come to lynch me.

So how will your business become a horse in this digital era? How are you positioning your business to benefit from the opportunities that lie herein?

With Broadband Internet becoming more easily accessible, the cost of being connected is decreasing and more devices are being created with Wi-Fi capabilities and sensors built into them. Essentially technology costs are going down allowing for smart phone penetration to be on the upward trend.  All of these things are creating a “perfect buffet” for the Internet of Things (IoT).

The IoT is a giant network of connected “things” (which also includes people).  The relationship is mainly centered on people and things. An analyst firm Gartner says that Internet of Things will grow at a 35.2% from 2013 through 2020, reaching an installed base of 25.0 billion units. In 2020, 8.3 billion “things” will ship, with more than half of them consumer applications. IoT will support total services spending of about $263 billion in 2020.
