The Industrial Internet: The Next Great Economic Revolution

It’s often argued that the most important era in U.S. history was the Industrial Revolution, that period from roughly 1760 to 1840 when almost every aspect of business and daily life changed.The shift from manual labor to machines, from wood to coal, from farms to cities–those are just a few of the ways our world changed dramatically when a new era of U.S. economic power was born. We are now at the beginning of the next great economic era, which is being ushered in by the Industrial Internet Revolution. Today’s world has approximately 6.8 billion people and 12.5 billion connected devices. At the rate things are going, by 2020 we’ll have about 7.6 billion people and 50 billion connected devices.
