Internet of Things Training (IoT) Training Overview. The Internet of Things (IoT) touches all of our lives and will continue to do so in a way that will make today seem like a century ago tomorrow. Imagine a world where everything in your life is connected – house, car, electric piano, toaster, TV, computer, phone, tablet, electric meter, alarms, coffee pot, lights, the dog’s collar, and your pacemaker. Once only a vision, this advanced technological world is now a reality with more than 50 billion smart devices expected to be connected to the Internet of Things soon.

Don’t look now, but the IoT revolution has already changed things. It’s all about data and how data influences us. This new technological landscape has ushered in a different kind of ecosystem that not only collects data but transfers it to other devices and renders decisions without human intervention. Let ENO Institute help accelerate your IoT journey.
