Four questions were posed: Q. 1 What is IoT? Q. 2 Where's the business value? Q. 3 Which industries best for IoT? Q. 4 What about security? There were hundreds of Tweets. Below are some notable examples matched to the questions.
The Enterprise CIO Forum will hold a Twitter chat Thursday to discuss the Internet of Things and its impact on IT and CIOs. ECF community manager John Dodge will moderate the chat from 1-2 p.m. EDT Thursday, March 20. #CIOchat is the hashtag.

-- What is the Internet of Things?
-- Can the Internet of Things generate business value? How?
-- Which industries could benefit most from the Internet of Things?
-- What are the security risks with the Internet of Things?
Ready to put those antiquated mainframes apps into the cloud or on smart phones? Not so fast. It just got a whole lot more expensive.
