Consumer devices, mobile platforms and data management paradigms have evolved extremely fast in the last decade. In fact, the evolution has been so rapid that we now find ourselves in an era of unprecedented connectivity and unimaginable data volumes. The speed of this growth is evident from analyst projections. IDC projects the global spending on IoT to be almost USD 1.4 trillion by 2021. Gartner says that there would be more than 20 bn connected things across the world by 2020, of which over 60% would be consumer devices.
