In the last decade we have witnessed the advent of a disruptive technological wave, the so-called Internet of Things (IoT). Currently, there are around 12 billion smart devices in the world. Regarding the future, Cisco expects 37 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020.
A study conducted by Zebra has concluded that knowledge of the Internet of Things is increasing. According to this survey, which involved 908 companies, 57% of companies in the sample have a well-defined roadmap for the adoption of IoT solutions. However, only 36% have currently implemented IoT within the organization. The remaining 62% are expected to adopt connected technologies soon.
