By 2020, there will be an estimated 7.3 billion PCs and Smartphones connected to the Internet, and _26 billion_ smart devices[1]. That's the "Internet of Things", and it's coming in a big way. The data-generation potential from these connected devices is incredible. Imagine you manufacture a device of some sort - a light bulb, an oven, a car, anything - that's soon to be internet connected. Once your device can communicate with the internet, it can send back information you've _never had access to before_... * How are customers _actually_ using your product? * How many are deployed and installed, versus sitting in warehouses or showrooms? * What settings are customers using? * What are the leading indicators of a failure condition? * What features are customers not using? Capturing basic telemetry data from your device answers these questions and more for your business. In a world where you may be shipping millions of these devices it takes significant expertise, time, and money to build a scalable, robust, and secure backend to fully utilize this data.
