Even if the Internet appears ubiquitous, the number of objects or devices connected to the internet is still greatly inferior to those that are not connected. The coming revolution will result from the need of replacing disconnected objects with connected ones, and making these objects ever more intelligent, and aware of their surroundings (using sensors). The resulting network promises to create disruptive business models.
We call this new step: The Internet of Things
In 2008 the number of devices connected to the Internet exceeded the number of people on Earth, and we foresee 50 billions Connected Things in 2020.
