About the internet of things

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is the collective term for the billions of physical objects that are now linked to the internet and actively collecting and exchanging data. You can make anything a part of the Internet of Things (IoT), from a pill to an airplane, thanks to the development of incredibly affordable computer chips and the widespread use of wireless networks.

Given how well IoT integrates with numerous data management, machine learning, smart device, and cloud computing applications, the scope of IoT is vast. With the help of our industry experts and useful labs, OpenITLabz will enable you to reflect on the full spectrum and use cases of IoT.

 Why learn IoT anyway?

Simply put, IoT improves consumer lifestyles while saving businesses money. And both of these insights are important. IoT offers a wide variety of jobs because it is a collection of all technologies rather than a single industry or technology.

IoT revolution —it is happening—unlike some other technologies that are predicted but never materialize, IoT will only grow from here

It is always best to be ready, whether it is for your own business or potential future employment with OpenITLabz.

Why is it worth it?

 At this point, every expert vouches for the fact that AI is here to stay. A study conducted by Intel showed that the top 70 of the fortune 100 companies are innovating their products in their respective industry using IoT.

In fact, nearly 75.44 billion devices are expected to be connected by the Internet of Things by 2025 and it is anticipated that businesses will spend up to $15 trillion on IoT.
