It is estimated by McKinsey’s Technology Council that by 2025 more than 50 billion devices bill be connected to 1 IT generating 79.4 Jetta bytes (1021 bytes) of data yearly. The annual installation of Industrial Robots which have increased two times since 2015 i.e. to 4.5 lakhs will grow to about 6 lacs by 2022. Smart Mobiles, smart refrigerators, smart watches, smart fire alarm, smart door lock, smart bicycle, medical sensors, fitness trackers, smart security system etc., are few examples of IT which have already invaded our life, and digitally transformed the societies all over the world. In its simplest sense, digital transformation defines how an organization delivers value to its customers using technology, people, and processes. It is about rethinking technology. We are amidst the 4th Industrial Revolution, and technology is evolving faster than ever cloud vendors are working to incorporate loT for finding better solutions for the customers. IT providers are shifting focus towards developing security enabled IT solutions, and thus, we expect to see increased trust in the IoT solutions which can pave the way for innovation in the new world. Businesses will require the reskilling of the Next-gen workforce to be trained in 2020 tech trends such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Internet of Things, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has already received a lot of buzz in the past decade, but it continues to be one of the new technology trends because its notable effects on how we live, work and play are only in the early stages. The leading role is played by IoT and IloT. The next big thing in 2021 is the healthcare industry’s continued rapid adoption of technology, driven by the pandemic. Blockchain. Increased adoption of blockchain technology is one of the latest IT trends. Blockchain can ensure data protection in IT devices. Next stage is of IoE. Cisco defines the Internet of Everything (IoE) as the networked connection of people, process, data, and things. The benefit of IoE is derived from the compound impact of connecting people, process, data, and things, and the value this increased connectedness creates as “everything” comes online. The positive impact of the IoT on citizens, businesses and governments will be significant, ranging from helping governments reduce healthcare costs and improving quality of life, to reducing carbon footprints, increasing access to education in remote underserved communities, and improving transportation safety. It was in the right earnest of technical development at undergraduate level that All India Council of Technical Education felt the necessity of introducing IT under emerging technology.
This book is designed exactly as per syllabus suggested by them. I have taken care to give detailed procedure for all the practical’s suggested by them in Unit 12 and 13 of this book. One extra chapter has been added at the end for describing one more emerging technology which is just an extension of IoT, i.e. Internet of Every thing (IoE).
