The Internet of Things (IoT) is fueling innovation in nearly every part of our lives. Simply connecting the “things” that were never connected before is leading to new data insights that translate into meaningful change. With the potential of billions of new connected things bringing a tidal wave of new data, businesses want a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, interoperability, and management concerns. Our objective is to provide our engineering community and suppliers a path to their solutions.
IoT is a mega technology trend that will not only be an endurance test for legacy systems but will also shape the fate of small and big companies in many different industries. Estimates are for 50 billion IoT connected devices by 2020 and 100 billion by 2025. There are a multitude of companies and proposed network solutions. We, at Digi-Key, are committed to helping our customers navigate the plethora of choices and find the best solutions for their applications or use-cases.
In an effort to accelerate IoT adoption by our customers, Digi-Key continues to offer the latest and greatest IoT-relevant products and services. IoT products span many different categories, including hardware, software and cloud & connectivity services. We are working hard to bring together and bundle these products and services in meaningful ways that integrate into more complete solutions.
