Objects connected directly to the Internet, dubbed machine-to-machine, or M2M, technology provide a plethora of possibilities for organizations. Machines communicating directly with other machines with minimal human intervention poses exciting possibilities that will change the technology landscape significantly over time.
The most interesting thing about M2M technology is that it sits at the intersection of cloud, big data and mobile. Every use case is going to be dramatically different. Much of the focus has been on putting sensors everywhere to collect and view data, so the idea of smart buildings, self-healing infrastructure, and that type of advancement will become a reality. We're on the cusp of actually starting to take in all that sensor data and figuring out what to do with it.
