A Linked-In post discussing the impact of the Internet of Things on world, and in particularly the logistics industry that will likely be on the front line as it increasingly becomes deployed. There’s a bit of a commercial pitch here, but not enough to obscure its most important point: “Enterprise asset applications will talk to each other in real time, automatically, deciding precisely when inventory should be ordered (and therefore when it should be manufactured), how long it will take to get there, considering predicted weather and traffic, and precisely when it needs to arrive, based on just-in-time principles”. Remember this staggering fact:  26-75 billion devices around the world are predicted to be connected through the Internet of Things within the next four (four!) years.
