The Internet of Everything concept

ATLANTA, GA– March 13, 2017– The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) will host an event on March 16 at 11:30AM Eastern to discuss “Why 2017 is the Year of the Internet of Things (IoT)” The presentation will feature Steve Latham, founder and chief executive officer at Banyan Hills Technologies.

Latham will focus on the basic premise of IoT, and what it means to the enterprise; the exciting ways in which it is being used across different industries; and ways IoT can be applied to the enterprise to make it smarter.

Latham’s discussion will also touch on the issues facing IoT adoption such as security, scale, and socioeconomic considerations.

Making room for IoT is a necessary step to moving any business forward. As the number of connected things continues to rise, it has been projected to reach 50.1 billion things in 2020, and there is estimated to be 44 trillion gigabytes of data from all those connected things-that’s equal to the number of stars in the universe.
