Beyond the entertainment aspect, many of us run and engage with our work through our phones. Most of us pick up our phones at least 50 times a day and receive about 150 notifications. This computer in our pocket has become a window into how things perform. In business, we call these assets. And we use our phones as portals to get information about these assets, so that we can make decisions about how to improve some aspect of our lives.
We use them to monitor, get notified about and generate insight about our world. Our phones have become portals of remote information.
Because of this, we are connecting more of our remote assets to the internet so that they can send information to our smartphones.
Companies such as SqwidNet are making it possible to use their internet of things ecosystem to connect all existing assets to the internet at an ultra-low cost.
