In the future, companies selling Internet of Things will offer data along with their core products and services, just like fast food companies sell fries with your burger.
3 Ways IoT Will Change Business
Here's a quote:
Take John Deere, for example. For
decades, they’ve sold the tractors
that make farming on a 21st
century scale easier and more
profitable. But since 2012,
they’ve added data connectivity to
their equipment, giving farmers
information about which crops to
plant where and when, when and
where to plow, and even the best
route to take while plowing. They
are essentially now in the
business of selling data as much
as they are selling tractors.
So, get ready for the revolution, where data will be the "blades" and IoT devices will be the "razors". Want fries with that?
