The Internet of Things 2015: Top 100 Individuals and Brands

by | Apr 1, 2015 | Influencer Lists,

Modern devices are getting smarter, there are already fridges that order milk and other products when you’re running low, soda streams that allow you to mix your drinks remotely via an app and smart scales that pair with wearable tech fitness trackers to measure your weight over time. It seems all products now come with a computer and an internet connection making it easier to control and automate our daily tasks, as well as collect data. Amazon just announced plans for their Dash Buttons which allow you to order a specific product when you’re running low. At the push of a button the new products are ordered and an alert is sent to your phone so you can cancel if you change your mind.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the term used to describe this connectivity between our “things” and the technology that facilitates it is called “Machine to Machine” (M2M), the two topics are intrinsically linked. If you’re interested in learning more about M2M check out our M2M Top 100  Influencers and Brands.

We ran an Influencer Identification on the IoT in 2014, but since then the landscape has evolved and new businesses have entered the market. Most recently IBM announced they will be investing $3B in building up their IoT business. Other developments include Parse (the mobile platform-as-a-service company Facebook acquired in 2013) announcing their new IoT platform, which sees them joining the likes of heavyweights Citrix, Arrayent and SeeContol. The UK Government also announced in its May budget plans to invest £40 million into researching the IoT.

The real benefits of the IoT and M2M have yet to be fully realised but we are already seeing increased mobility and efficiency in the workplace, saving us time and money.
