If your company is not already drowning in data now, it will be soon. Gartner Inc. forecasts that 8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017, up 31 percent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In 2017, 6 million new things will be connected every day. Each one of them will transmit a stream of data, adding up to sensor data volumes that will dwarf today’s volumes. How your business uses this streaming data to compete in the market may determine its long-term success within the world of Industrial IoT.
