Today, it’s hard to imagine a world without the Internet. At the click of a mouse, consumers can purchase nearly anything. In addition, businesses have access to virtually unlimited markets and unprecedented data.

But according to many, we are on the cusp of another Internet revolution—the “industrial Internet,” an open, global network that connects people, data, and machines. Other major trends and advances include “big data” solutions, cloud computing, sophisticated social media applications, and more.
