- The first chapter in the 2012 Cisco Connected World Technology Report builds on last year’s report by examining how Gen Y creates increasing loads of data while impacting everything from online shopping to mobile devices to corporate culture and workforce expectations. At the heart of this year’s study is the smartphone and the constant connectivity it provides to work, entertainment, shopping, and friends. There are 206 bones in the human body, and the smartphone should be considered the 207th bone for Generation Y. They view smartphones as an appendage to their beings — an indispensible part of their lives, and yet they are concerned about data management and Internet security. Mobile devices like smartphones are contributing heavily to the world’s data, along with sensors, monitors, video cameras, and other IP-connected devices. Over time, more and more people, devices and things will be connected to the Internet, creating the “Internet of Everything.” The Gen Y workforce will be very much at home in that future world.
