There are billions of devices that now talk to each other.
You have a car that can talk to a mechanic, to signal the fact that it needs a repair; you have store shelves that can talk to a supply chain when they’re running low on inventory of a certain product. You have hundreds of billions of smart things — sensors, cameras, cars, shipping containers, intelligent appliances, tiny, traceable chips by the hundreds of millions — all becoming interconnected and making the smallest exchange more productive, efficient, and better.
Today’s smarter products represent a new generation of capabilities that provide increasingly multi-dimensional and personalized functions. And as these devices talk, they create systems that didn’t exist before.
