Driven by big data, cloud computing, and bigger networks, the Internet of Things (IoT) is being touted as the next big thing in, well, every sector imaginable. Mobile devices already out number the population in the United States and they are expected to surpass the population of the world by the end of this year, with 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020. According to a recent Harris/SAP survey, 90 percent of Internet-connected consumer devices will be connected to some kind of personal cloud by the end of 2013. That’s a lot of things and a lot of connections.
