The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined by embedded computing devices endowed with cross-network connectivity. This era of computing has huge potential for connected enterprises and consumers, and already has many successful use cases. IoT systems encompass many types of connectivity patterns, proprietary systems and network types. Just as the Web plays a significant role in providing an open, interoperable, easily deployable framework for today’s enterprise systems, it is not surprising the Web will provide similar benefits to IoT. New Web standards have allowed enterprises to extend their internal real-time systems over the firewall in a natural, unimpeded fashion to provide real-time, dynamic information to their customers and partners to ensure consistency and efficiency. These same Web standards can and should be applied to IoT systems to obtain advantages such as global reach, ease of deployment, economies of scale, ease of development, etc. We will discuss this evolution and explore the further impact of the Web on IoT.
