1.1.5 People, process, data and things
The IoE incorporates four pillars to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before: people, process, data, and things. The information from these connections leads to decisions and actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for individuals, businesses, and countries.
Table 2 What is the IoE? The internet of Everything is the netowrked connection of people, process, data and things
|Today, most people connect socially through their web-enabled devices. As the IoE evolves, we will connect in new and valuable ways. Wearable devices and clothing are already changing how we connect.||Processes occur between all of the other pillars in the IoE. With the correct processes, connections become more valuable. These connections provide the right information, delivered to the right person, at the right time and in the most relevant way.||Data is the information generated by people and things. This data, when combined with analytics, delivers actionable information to people and machines. Better decisions are made and better results are achieved.||Things are physical objects that are connected to the internet and to each other. These devices are sensing and collecting more data, becoming context-aware, and providing more experiential information to aid both people and machines.|
