In the future, all of our things will act as one. Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017 and that number will reach 20.4 billion by 2020.
In time, these appliances will exchange information automatically, co-ordinating what they do without human intervention. A world where every electronic device is connected to the internet and every appliance communicates with every other appliance will need specialists to manage that communication and analyse the data.
This course will help you to become just such a professional. An IoT skills gap has been identified, particularly in relation to programming, data management/visualisation, and security. This course will produce professionals with strong technical, creative, and intellectual skills to meet the need of the computing industry as it expands into ubiquitous networked devices.
You will acquire the knowledge and skills to manage real business activities through an IoT infrastructure and develop an awareness of the impact of IoT on society. The course will develop your technical abilities and give you the confidence to lead technological change in any organisation.
