Internet of Things (IoT) Training

The Future belongs to Internet of Things

Overview

The Internet of Things, commonly referred to as IoT, is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings, and other items that's been integrated into the technology of modern electronics, software, sensors, and other "things" with network connectivity that enables them to collect and exchange data. Once collected, this data becomes a powerful resource, which companies and technologies are tapping into, in revolutionary ways.

Advanced Internet of Things (IoT) Certification

The Internet of Things is powering a new era of science and technology and is transforming our lives in powerful ways, including our habits, behaviors, and even the way we do business. The world is changing at an incredible pace, with the number of IoT devices increasing by 31% year-over-year, totaling 8.4 billion in 2017. By 2022, it's estimated that there will be 30 billion IoT devices, and a global market of $7.1 trillion.

Without a doubt, IoT is poised to play a central and defining role in the future of the world. Because of this, it's more important than ever for IT experts to meet the demands of early adopters of this technology, and fill this ever-expanding skills gap. This is where Cognixia's exclusive IoT course comes into play.

Why is Advanced IoT in demand?

IoT is fast becoming an indispensable part of our lives – often without us realizing it. Its applications extend to all areas of computing and internet connectivity, from the most commonly used devices (such as desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets) to the most complex devices. Homeowners can benefit from "Smart Homes", while people with disabilities can use assistive technology such as voice control features to provide comfort and safety. The potential extends to almost any industry and facet of life, The data captured on these devices through sensors reveals interesting patterns that have immense value in business and marketing.

As businesses realize the huge value of the insights drawn from the IoT-device data, enormous opportunities for IoT specialists arise. The technology promises to enhance data resources, improve efficiencies, and increase productivity for organizations globally. If there's ever been a fantastic time to leap into this path-breaking technology, it's now.
