"The Internet of Things (IoT) has been used to describe the vast network of objects and sensors that transmit and exchange data. For the IoT to provide business value, it requires a smart network—one intelligent enough to support a growing array of people, processes and things.
That’s where the “Analytics of Everything” (AoE) can play a major role. In many ways, the AoE presents the biggest challenge—and opportunity—of putting data to use. Even the most tech-savvy organizations recognize that extracting value from data can be a difficult, skills-intensive process, especially when integrating it with business operations and human behavioral data. But now more than ever, it’s essential to take full advantage of all this information to find better, more efficient ways to operate and make decisions."
