I believe we're very early. I think the first generation is well underway -- people are using a variety of scale-out architectures to consume that data we just talked about. Those scale-out architectures were the enabler -- they were the architectural breakthrough that finally enabled many businesses to take in a high volume of data at high velocity.

By scale-out, I mean that instead of trying to store all that data on a single big computer, with a lot of memory storage and network bandwidth and CPUs, we were able to take that data and spread it across [many] inexpensive commodity machines. That new scale-out architecture is what generated the capability for Generation One of the IoT.
