Who will need IoT, anyway? Internet of Things technology has been hyped over the past years as the next big thing. But where is the demand for all this wonderful technology actually going to come from?
The key lesson from the smartphone revolution is that Apple and Google won not by product features, but by creating networks of entrepreneurs. These networks of entrepreneurs unlocked new demand by creating countless of apps and devices that no single company could ever imagine, let alone create on its own.
