The Internet of Things (IoT) will change the ways we live, work and play. IoT includes everything from high-tech consumer wearables such as the FitBit to home automation tools like the Nest thermostat. It encompasses monitoring tools for mining equipment and apps that help consumers monitor their appliances. IoT is the digital interactive connectivity between people, animals, devices, structures and places. IoT is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity to enable it to achieve greater value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and other connected devices. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. As ICT has progressed in products and services, so-called ICT with existing industry is fused," Convergence Industry" become important. Convergence Industry has entered a new turning point by the diffusion of IoT. IoT makes to new changes the convergence paradigm with a variety of industry and ICT by the innovation from the industry outside activated. In this paper; I explain the use case of IoT, presenting the direction of the business strategy of IoT from the perspective of Industrial Convergence.
