With the Internet of Things, we have the power to make the business objects that we are interacting with smarter about who we are, what we need to do, and how to collaborate. We can add contextual levels of information about our business and our environment. The more context you have, the greater inference or predictability you have. This gives you the ability to draw reasonable conclusions about user behavior and provide smarter user experiences that are more natural. The more aware we make our environment, the more we connect our user experiences together, and the more productive and efficient we can be.
