Session 2: Pillars of the IoE


Within everything there are things – things are the technological devices that sit on the edge of the internet and allow us to solve all manner of automation problems. A thing may be a heat sensor, light sensor, motion detector or a button we press. They are all things that we use to create the IoE.

There are new things appearing all of the time, while we do not expect you to make a purchase, it is worth taking a peek at this internet of things shopping site [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab.

In this session you will learn about:

  • how people are connected
  • what data can be used for the IoE
  • how the correct processes can be used to enable the IoE
  • which things are useful things in the current IoE.
