This chart highlights a very important fact: "things" like cars, TVs, doorbells, refrigerators, baby monitors, etc. will all be Internet connected soon. This will mark a very important step in the digital transformation of enterprises: the ability to "google" device data to find out what they are doing now (and historically). 


Similar to stock market charts, we'll start to find websites dedicated to providing raw data and analysis on that data. power of the web and big data will allow your individual device (say your heart monitor) to compare your data with that of similar devices and users worlwide to detect patterns, such as heart attack probability.


In the corporate context, with an Internet connected fleet of delivery vehicles, it will be possible to analyze the efficiency of the fleet with comparable fleets, and even maybe compare drivers. This will pose interesting challenges for IT departments as they'll have to manage a flood of new data. We can however expect this data to be consolidated within fleet management solutions and software and sold as a service by those providers.

Target will spend more on technology than on stores in 2014 via @wsj

Target will spend more on technology than on stores in 2014 via @wsj | Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In an effort to catch up, Target this year is spending about as much of its $2.3 billion U.S. capital budget on improving its technology, developing mobile apps and modernizing its supply chain as it is on opening and remodeling stores. Next year, the company will spend more on those investments than on stores, an acknowledgment that future growth will increasingly depend on digital sales.

2.3B$ in technology to try and increase its online sales (now at 2% of 73B) is proof of the need by retailers to transform their ways or disappear. Then again Target used to let Amazon run its website.

This chart helps you visualize how much crowdfunding has blossomed in 2 years. it also highlights the risk for fraud. As the numbers of players and the amount of money grows, the potential for misleading sites will also grow.
