This trend will only accelerate in the coming years and I believe that we will see innovative technologies inside prescription drugs medicine that deliver real-time health information to care providers through the IoT at a low cost. The Affordable Care Act is working as a catalyst for these Analytics based Business Solutions similar as the year 2000 challenge moved us from Mainframe to Client Server platforms. After almost 20 years in Business Intelligence and IT Management I have not been more excited than now. Finally corporate IT is starting to become a profit center.
