Millions of devices connected to each other, talking and reporting numbers, making the world revolve more efficiently. Hospitals 3D printing spare parts as they need them, farmers sending drones over fields to examine crops, and remote-controlled factories. Can Australia benefit from the IoT revolution? You bet – to the tune of $308 billion over the next couple of decades. That’s according to Australia’s IoT Opportunity: Driving Future Growth – An ACS Report, prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). How do you plan on being part of it?
According to the ACS, the fourth industrial revolution and IoT promises new employment opportunities in the technology sector, especially in areas such as data scientists, software and systems engineers, full stack developers, cyber security professionals, and communications and network designers.
