Supporting the Digital Age for Enterprise and Industry
We are trained from an early age to view history in easy to understand blocks of change. Antiquity, medieval, the renaissance, industrial revolution, and the modern era all have their clearly defined periods.
However, it is far harder to picture a new age when you are living through it. Yet the new digital age we are entering is turning everything we do and think on its head at a breath-taking pace. It really will be a new age – a Fourth Industrial Revolution – where life for all of us will be nothing like what has gone before.
Advances in miniaturisation, wireless connectivity, and increased data storage capacity mean that we can transform everyday objects into a network of information that allows us to understand our world more than ever. The Internet of Things (IoT) has become the vanguard ushering in this new age. It is the eyes and ears of the world around us and is enabling radical change in our homes and work. (Inmarsat 2017)
