Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has been working on developing IP and products for the IoT (Internet of Things) for many years with the idea that they do not want to miss this next huge growth area which companies like DHL and Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) have estimated to be 50 billion things by 2020. These companies estimate that IoT will deliver a $1.9 trillion boost to supply chain and logistics operations. While Intel will sell chips to go into Things, their biggest financial benefit will come from sales of processors for gateway devices to collect data at the edge and data centers needed to store/process/analyze the data from 50 billion Things so that personal computing devices can connect humans to the useful Big Data analytics. (Note that the chips in Things, onsite gateways and onsite processor chips are part of the Intel IoTG while the processors in data centers are part of the Intel DCG.)

Advances in healthcare for curing and managing diseases, extending life expectancy and improving overall quality of life have been significant. We might think that’s all good and it is; but in reality new challenges have surfaced.While the average life expectancy of humans is on the rise, more and more people are developing long term health conditions that require continuous monitoring and ongoing treatment. These two facts have the potential to put additional pressure on already stretched healthcare systems and their ever-increasing costs. What if there was a solution for streamlining and lowering the costs of healthcare monitoring and delivery while improving the quality and making it more convenient and accessible to patients? Think Connected Devices, Big Data and Smart Cities – all part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
