The Internet of Things is transforming the way we do business and the way we live our lives. But this IoT transformation is an evolution, represented by three distinct phases: connecting the unconnected, creating smart and connected things, and building a software-defined autonomous world. With an estimated 85% of devices still unconnected, we have a tremendous opportunity to accelerate major technology breakthroughs and innovations that accelerate this evolution across the phases in a variety of market segments.
