Contrary to his philosophical way of talking, his lab coat is full of stains by the time he finished walking through. But still, he has a very confident look on his face because he can wash away all the stains with Ariel alone, even without bleach. He puts on his fully cleaned lab coat and starts talking again.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard.
