In 1999, the term Internet of Things (IoT) was used for the very first time by Kevin Ashton "Inventor of IoT". He coined the phrase when describing a system where the Internet is connected to the physical world via ubiquitous sensors. In the interview for the third edition of Smart Industry - the IoT Business magazine, he explains how IoT is more than a buzzword, how companies can win with IoT and what the next big thing is to come after IoT.
