Internet of Things
In a nutshell, Internet of Things (IoT) refers to physical objects (or groups of such objects) that are equipped with sensors, processing power, software, and other technologies that connect to and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet or other communication networks. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a massive network of interconnected things and people, all of which collect and share data about how they are utilized and the environment around them.
The fundamental design concerns for an efficient IoT architecture in a heterogeneous context are scalability, adaptability, connectivity, and openness. The IoT architecture must be built with the goal of meeting the needs of cross-domain interactions, multi-system integration with the possibility for simple and scalable administration features, big data analytics and storage, as well as user-friendly applications. In addition, the architecture should be able to scale up the functionality and add some intelligence plus automation to the system's IoT devices.
IoT technology is utilized for a wide range of applications, including home security, thermostats & lighting fixtures, as well as industrial usage for manufacturing & defense applications, also Medical & Healthcare Applications, and many more. These diverse applications can be generally classified as commercial, consumer, industrial, and infrastructural applications.
The Internet of Things provides numerous advantages for applications ranging from daily domestic use to industrial monitoring, manufacturing, and even integrated smart cities. Improving safety, efficiency and time management are just a few of the advantages.

- The Internet of Things (IoT) unites physical objects with the virtual world.
- Capture information about their direct environment with the aid of sensors, then analyze and link it and make it available in a network.
- Enables companies to automate processes and reduce labor costs
- Making it less expensive to manufacture and deliver goods, as well as offering transparency into customer transactions
- Improved customer service and retention
- Investigate the available sales data to determine which components are selling fastest.
- Align sales data with supply automatically so that popular items do not run out of stock
