This is the perfect time to introduce and integrate the advancement of this revolutionary technology in the Philippines since our country is considered as the texting and social media capital of the world.

According to several studies, statistically speaking Filipinos are utilizing social media platforms in an average of 53 hours per week, which is 11 hours more than the global average usage of just 42 hours. 

It goes to show that more Filipinos are relying and using their mobile devices and gadgets to connect and interact with the rest of the world. There is a huge market in the Philippines that can benefit from introducing the latest innovations when it comes to technology.

Almost everything is getting connected through the internet and according to statistics, there are 38 million Filipinos internet users, communicating with each other and sharing information. 

Soon, almost everything will be connected such as cities, home, cars, traffic light, appliances and many more. The number of connected devices is expected to hit 50 billion by 2020 so it is important that any business takes the lead in employing the necessary solutions to facilitate this transition, no wonder, Internet of Things is considered to be the “NEXT BIG THING “ in the world of technology and innovation.
