IoT Applications & Software Development
IOT (Internet of Things), simply mean anything that has a capacity to connect to the internet and that can provide information about itself and allow users to interact to it via the internet. So, a Mobile phone, Temperature Gauge, Security Camera, Dog Collar, Fridge, Door, Tire or anything you can think of can become an IOT thing as ways are found to connect it to the internet and as internet connectivity becomes available everywhere.
The main issues are security and changing protocols to interact with these “Things”.

The concept of combining computers, sensors, and networks to monitor and control devices has existed for decades. The recent confluence of several technology market trends, however, is bringing the Internet of Things closer to widespread reality. These include Ubiquitous Connectivity, Widespread Adoption of IP-based Networking, Computing Economics, Miniaturization, Advances in Data Analytics, and the Rise of Cloud Computing.
Connecting all the intelligent devices in your business gives you a centrally integrated data store allowing for data analytics and real-time snapshots of your business outcomes with an accuracy and scale never seen before.
With the projections and trends towards IoT fast becoming reality, it is forcing a shift in thinking about conventional business models in a world where the most common interaction with the Internet comes from passive engagement with connected objects rather than active engagement with content.
Manufacturing advances allow cutting-edge computing and communications technology to be incorporated into very small objects. Coupled with greater computing economics, this has fueled the advancement of small and inexpensive sensor devices, which drive many IoT applications.
New algorithms and rapid increases in computing power, data storage, and cloud services enable the aggregation, correlation, and analysis of vast quantities of data; these large and dynamic data-sets provide new opportunities for extracting information and knowledge.
Cloud computing, which leverages remote, networked computing resources to process, manage, and store data, allows small and distributed devices to interact with powerful back-end analytic and control capabilities.
