2015 was the year when the organizations that have invested on the Internet of Things started seeing their investments pay dividends. In 2016, the trend suggests this is further going to get better. As per management consulting firm McKinsey, manufacturing units are getting smarter. Labour efficiency levels have gone up several notches due to use of RFID tags attached to devices. Similarly, logistics have become much more efficient, with the port city of Hamburg in Germany being the best example where redundancies have reduced as a result of extensive use of cloud based technologies developed by SAP and Deutsche Telekom. There has been little doubt that wearable technologies like Apple Watch have improved human health by mapping minute observations that weren’t possible earlier. New business models are being forged by using IoT based technologies on traditional industries.

The Internet of Things (IoT) also includes an array of 7 Cs. The first C is Consumption as IoT involves ingestion of data across IT structures. Then there is Connection which aims at connectivity around devices to developbusiness intelligence. It is however important to enable Conversion from raw data to content that is useful for readers. A sense of Cognition is needed to make sense out of the enormous chunks of data. Centralization is a critical element that is emerging in to IoT as data sources of the same are disparately located. Incidentally sometimes it is needed to Configure the data back into the system after evaluating so that the next chunk can be ever more meaningful. To manage such vast operations, Coordination is necessary. An eight C called Creativity has also been suggested.
