Carol Stream, Ill. – May 5, 2015 – Theodore Levitt, an American economist, says, “Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.” Some of the most transformative startups and multinational corporations are “doing new things” in the IoT (Internet of Things) marketplace. In fact, IDC says the installed base of IoT units will soar to 28 billion in 2020.

In response to this growth in the space, Connected World magazine today named the winners of the inaugural IoT Innovations Awards.

Submitted IoT (Internet of Things) products were judged by an editorial panel representing a cross section of the industry. Both business and consumer IoT products were submitted for judging. Winning products are selected based on a variety of criteria, including most creative and technologically advanced products, services, and platforms.

“The IoT market is prospering at such a rapid rate that new products seem to be announced almost by the hour. Connected World is searching for the most innovative products that change people’s lives and the way businesses operate,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “The winners of the first IoT Innovations prove novelty and creativity continues to assert itself in the IoT community across a plethora of industries.”
