SAS: A Non-Geek’s A-to-Z Guide to the Internet of Things
Article Synopsis :
The internet of things (IoT) is not an easy thing to define. Much of the functionality of these connected devices comes from being connected over remotely, which is very much an intangible benefit.
No common language
But what it is is open to wide interpretation. Some focus on market size, others the massive revenue potential, while others still view the objects themselves, the billions of the “things” as the market.
Everything has a sensor and an IP address these days – they are everywhere. What this report has done is to bring together the 101 most used terms connected – pun intended – to the subject of IoT.

Organisations describe it in many different ways, but there are a number of common traits – connectivity, “things” and data (or information). And all of these are having a huge impact on how we live our lives today.
Not the last word on IoT
The list is not exhaustive and it could be out of date in a few months, but does identify important buzzwords and will provide the newly initiated with a useful resource for getting up to speed with the IoT.
Don’t be afraid of the text
Technical terms are used, but this is non-geek friendly, say the authors.
There is also plenty of context to help readers understand how a term fits within a larger discussion. Categories such as “analytics” or “connectivity,” are grouped and have a coloured icon.
It’s designed to be easily navigated. You may even have when you are finding your way around.
