IoT in Agriculture

Agriculture constitutes one of the largest and highest earning value chains of any sector in the US. With so many labor-intensive tasks and large amounts of real-estate it is an ideal candidate for the optimization provided by IoT.

"The world will need to produce 70% more food in 2050 than it did in 2006 in order to feed the growing population of the Earth, per the UN Food & Agriculture Organization. To meet this demand, farmers and ag companies are turning to the Internet of Things for analytics and greater production capabilities."

IoT in Manufacturing

IoT in manufacturing is sometimes called Industrial Internet of Things or IIoT, or sometimes part of Industry 4.0 (1 steam, 2 electrification, 3 was automation). It touches all aspects of manufacturing with a combination of IoT and Big Data.

Accenture estimates the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) could add $14.2T to the global economy by 2030. Across the industries surveyed, 80 to 90 percent of companies indicated that Big Data analytics is either the top priority for the company or in the top three.

Quality of Place

Quality of place benefits from data science and connected devices as much as agriculture and technology. Whether it be making it easier to appreciate nature or alleviating stress on the environment, or helping those in need, or reinforcing education or healthcare, or even just making it easier to appreciate better where we live and work, the Internet of Things can make the places we are better too.

By 2020, Cisco estimates that there will be 3.4 connected devices per person, and the number of connected devices is expected to reach 75 billion by 2025.
