WEBINAR: Developing for the Internet of Things: Challenges and Opportunities
Now available on-demand | DURATION: 1 hour
Hosted by: Phil Goldstein, Editor,
Cisco estimates that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected to the Internet by 2020. And by 2017, Gartner predicts that wearable devices will drive 50 percent of total app interactions. Cisco and Gartner are just two of a wide range of players expecting huge growth in the Internet of things.
If this market takes off, there are obvious opportunities for module makers, system integrators and software management companies. But will there be a role for developers in this area? And if so, how can developers position themselves in the months ahead on this nascent but potentially explosive opportunity?
In this FierceMobileIT webinar, Editor Phil Goldstein will moderate a discussion on the opportunites of huge growth in the Internet of things.
