IDC found that there will be 80 billion connected devices in 2025, helping generate 180 trillion gigabytes of new data that year. The amount of data from the Internet of Things (IoT) that is analyzed and used to change business processes will be as big in 2025 as the amount of all the data created in 2020. The process of collecting and analyzing this data will depend on the application of modern software analytics in new and innovative ways. This session will discuss how computer scientist and other engineering fields have a leading role to play as the transformation to a data driven world accelerates.
