##We need an ecosystem that connects all our devices making communication seamless
The challenges are in connecting all the devices together and making them talk to each other. This includes collecting and processing all the data in the back-end cloud and performing big data analytics to deliver useful information to people, enterprises and government in timely manner to improve overall productivity, efficiency, safety and security.
IoT is already happening and redefining the way we lead our lives. Smart phones start telling us what we need and what we should do like it tells us the best time to leave for office based on traffic congestion on the roads or reminds us a TV show based on our past viewing history. Smart watches and fitness bands start to monitor our health and connect us to our doctors 24/7 to provide timely diagnosis and prescriptions. We are able to monitor our homes better. We get to know if there is a gas leakage at home through alerts on our phones. We can remotely manage the power consumption at home while we are away. Unmanned or autonomous vehicles like drones are already here and early versions of self-driving cars are already on the roads. Same with enterprises. The combination of smart devices, sensors, cloud computing, cloud storage, huge bandwidth, sophisticated analytics software will help enterprises to manage themselves better and offer greater products, solutions and services to their customers.
