Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT will affect most industries andbusiness sectors – around 30% oftasks and up to 60% of occupations
could be automated, and almostevery occupation has the potential for partial automation (Source: McKinsey Global Institute)

$6 trillion will be spent on IoT solutions over the next 5 years. (Source: Business Insider)

Average annual salary for an IoT Architect is $179,000 (Source: Indeed)

4.2 million IoT developer jobs created by 2020 (Source: VisionMobile)

To remain competitive and successful in the digital economy, professionals should have an understanding of what IoT is and how it can be used to create business solutions. Learn major components of the Internet of Things and examine ways of integrating sensors, communication and multimedia technologies and use cloud services to make optimised business decisions.
