It’s well documented the number of connected devices is forecasted to reach 50 billion by 2020. The ability to make smarter, more affordable and agile sensors coupled with easy access to the cloud is a major factor in this explosion. Dubbed the Internet of Things, we can expect to see added value at every electronic turn.
As with any new technology or sector there will be tremendous disruption, as well as opportunity and potential failure. What will separate the winning ideas from the fads that have no longevity, and what are the implications? With more devices connected comes more access to personal data, more regulation, and the need for increased access to network space, to name just a few.

Key Focus Areas
In 2014, to support the growth and evolution of our community, MassTLC introduced four new key focus areas:
» Internet of Things (IoT) » Security » Healthcare » Life Sciences
MassTLC will produce programs that strategically target each of these focus areas and how they intersect with our four technology clusters including Big Data, Cloud, Mobile, and Robotics.
With the new addition of the internet of things focus area, each year there is a full day conference centered around IOT topics from all industries, as well as scattered smaller events throughout the year.
The MassTLC internet of things blog is filled IoT related materials including best practices, recaps from our events, and downloadable slide decks.
