As part of The StartUp Magazine’s ongoing Female Founders series, The Startup Magazine asked RUMBLE CEO and Founder Terri Foudray, for her views on the continued digitization of our physical world. Her premise is that technology has been a great disruptor – and no area more so than the launch of the Internet of Things. However, digitizing objects to create “smart products” for our daily work and home lives has created some last-mile challenges that have threatened to derail the promise of IoT.
Ms. Foudray is a dynamic thought leader in the IoT space, founding her IoT company to integrate Edge computer solutions to help solve the IoT performance shortfall. She is a strong STEM advocate and an active member of the advisory board for CompTIA’s Advisory Council.
Below she offers us her views on the need for effective management and harnessing of the reams of data produced by smart objects in the emerging smart world.
The promise of the Internet of Things, or “IoT” was one of connection. Specifically, the IoT was projected to connect more than 50 billion objects generating about 80 zettabytes of data. The reality, however, is far different. While connection has happened, we are still far from that mind-boggling 80 zettabyte projection. Does that mean the IoT is not real or useful?
Not at all.
