2014: A Connected Year for Construction?

Each year the analysts come out with predictions about technology trends for the coming year. In the past, such trends have included the cloud, mobile, and more—all of which are still predicted to be big areas of growth in 2014. However this year the analysts are making a bold prediction, saying IoT (Internet of Things) will be one of the top technology trends for enterprises in 2014.
IoT or M2M (machine-to-machine) is when devices have sensors, RFID (radio-frequency identification) tags, and other smart systems to enable connectivity between machines, devices, and people.
