The Internet has evolved in ways that we could never have imagined. In the beginning, advancements occurred slowly. 

Today, innovation and communication are happening at a remarkable rate.

From its humble beginning as the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) in 1969, where it interconnected a few sites, it is now predicted that the Internet will interconnect 50 billion things by 2020. 

The Internet now provides global connections that make web surfing, social media, and smart mobile devices possible.

The Internet: The Place to Go

Normally, when people use the term Internet, they are not referring to the physical connections in the real world. Rather, they tend to think of it as a formless collection of connections. 

It is the “place” people go to find or share information. It is the 21st century library, video store, and personal photo album.

People, Process, Data, and Things

The IoE incorporates four pillars to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before: people, process, data, and things. 

The information from these connections leads to decisions and actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for individuals, businesses, and countries.

The interactions between the elements in the four pillars create a wealth of new information. 

The pillars interact in a way that establishes three main connections in the IoE environment: people communicate with people (P2P), machines communicate with people (M2P), and machines communicate with machines (M2M).
