From reporting the temperature on a Coca-Cola can, to Marty McFly’s smart home in the future - connected devices have come a long way. While it’s not necessarily a new technology, it’s one with untapped potential. So how can we do this and benefit everyone in society?

Using our trusty time machine, we’ve been able to see where this technology started. Since then, the rise in remote working and, demand for smarter homes and personal health monitoring have driven an explosion in wearable and connected devices.

We’ve shared a number of use cases of where connected devices are supporting better public services, but there’s still a lot of room to broaden our thinking and realise the technology's full potential.

To help, we’ve teamed up with Amazon and public sector leaders to create Perspectives* volume 5. So, strap yourself in as we push past 88mph and help public services connect to the future.

In this action-packed and nostalgia drenched volume we…

  • Take a trip back to the 80s and uncover the history of connected devices
  • Explain how they work so we can generate the magical 1.21 gigawatts
  • Identify the gap so we can avoid a game over scenario (whoa that’s heavy man)
  • Share the current drivers and positive impact stories across local government, health and care, central government, housing and education
  • Connect all the key elements in our retro ‘mix tape’ to help you extract more value.
