According to networking giant Cisco Systems Inc., Intel Corp, and a variety of industry analysts; growth of connectivity thru the use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices will range anywhere from 26 billion to 100 billion by 2020.
As our world becomes increasingly more connected, business owners and consumers will need to shift their perspectives on the products they manufacture and buy. Not only are we connecting with more things, but more things will be initiating connections with us - and with each other - as part of the Internet of Things (IoT). These large growth projections - and the short time period - have many small business owners asking how this new hyper-connected world will impact them. Please join Melissa Birnie and her guest, Michelle Pluskota, VP of Business Services at Comcast, on Saturday, September 11th at 9:00 a.m. when they discuss a recent article Michelle wrote for Crain's Detroit, "Is Your Small or Medium-Size Business Ready for Connectivity Revolution?"
If you are a small or medium-size business owner, or just curious about the Internet of Things and how it is impacting industries world-wide, this is the podcast for you.
