Have a specific vision for the future

The Internet of Everything is a popular term. The interesting thing to me in David Evans’ (Cisco’s Chief Futurist) blog posting, is how clearly he sees it. He provides examples of technology being applied to water, traffic and agricultural systems. The level of precision he applies are terrific, allowing the reader to get a glimpse of the future.

It is important to apply this level of precision when picturing future trends. The growth of everything mobile is well noted. Companies can benefit from imagining specific use cases with the same level of precision as Cisco. This allows for two benefits, 1) understanding how the technology can be used to benefit users and 2) providing specific direction for companies to develop specific applications and experiences.
