This field was conceptualized in 1982 (1) but has since then become a complete reality. This new field has had an impact on almost anything mankind is still doing.
Known as the Internet of Things, IoT has completely changed the way most jobs are done nowadays. And science laboratories are no different.
Do you ever get that feeling that you would like to have a magic spell to organize all your data?

While labs are facing growing amounts of data, solutions are opening up on the global scene to help them cope with it. The change is already here. And it might be better than we expected.
