Everyone is talking about the next big wave in technology, Internet of Things (IoT). but GearBrain is working in it each day. We are the experts when it comes to helping to simplify this new connected life. We also solve the connected device purchase process and operational issues found with the myriad of smart devices and systems.
The IoT is the biggest wave in the development of the internet. Its allowing us to connect to new places–such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems–all via the Internet. As long as an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere in the world. As a result, this connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to increase efficiency and improve safety and security. Experts are predicting it will be a $Trillion market and over 28 Billion "things" or devices connected in the next five years. However, with all these new devices connecting to different places, there are a lot of unknowns. Most importantly, a lot of confusion among buyers on how it all works and what it all means to them. Consumers need smart understandable buying advice and recommendations to help them understand this new connected world and to help make the best decisions for them. GearBrain is a pioneering recommendation platform where consumers can research, discover, buy, and learn how to connect and optimize smart devices.
