  3. 3. 3Rise of the (Connected) Machines• Improvements in cellular data networks and increased investment in newconnected technologies and devices leads to an explosion in machine-to-machine(M2M) offerings.• We are entering a time where nearly every device for security, healthcare,entertainment, etc. will be connected to the Internet and be able to transfer, storeand analyze data to help improve the user’s health, safety or experience.• Experts estimate there will be 25 billion connected devices by 2015 and 50 billionby 2020.• In many ways the M2M revolution has already begun. Here’s a look at some of theconnected machines that are already around you in places where you may noteven be aware of them.
  4. 4. 4Connected Cars• ABI Research reported that there were 5.7 million Internet connected cars in 2012,and they expect that number to rise to 50.9 million by 2017.• Connected cars include navigation, safety and entertainment services for bothdrivers and passengers.
  5. 5. 5Fleet Management• Businesses are managing service and/or delivery fleets with greater control andprecision.• This includes measuring vehicle and operator performance, route efficiency,increasing customer satisfaction, keeping resources secure and addressingregulations.• Experts estimate fleet management systems will see an annual growth rate of 27percent until 2016.
  6. 6. 6Medical Devices• The rising cost and complexity of healthcare, coupled with new security regulations,have created a need for the healthcare industry to find ways to service more peoplemore efficiently.• Remote and self-serve testing and monitoring services give patients the flexibility tomanage their own care, while also providing data to healthcare providers to trackproper care.
  7. 7. 7• Proper utility management is about more than just saving money. It’s aboutconservation and stewardship for future generations.• Consumption will be monitored at nearly every step along the way – in home bythermostats, from home usage meters and at way stations, treatment plants andalong delivery systems.• That data, when effectively captured and analyzed, helps prevent system failuresand manage costs.Utilities
  8. 8. 8Manufacturing• Our economy relies on the ability to quickly and cost-effectively create and deliver goods –whether it’s TVs or oranges.• Most companies today have adopted just in time manufacturing processes, but in order toeffectively manage an efficient supply chain companies need data on each raw material, part,equipment, delivery and sale. If any part of the chain breaks, the entire process fails.• Gathering and managing that data is enabled by Internet connected machines.
