Amongst the top technologies and trends --including mobility, cloud, M2M, and Big data, Machine to machine technology witnessed the highest number of searches in 2014.
Even in India, M2M manages to stay at the top which is followed by Cloud Computing and Big Data. Mobility, which is third on the list in terms of number of searches made globally last year, seems to have seen least number of searches here.
M2M, being the enabler of Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart City, users searched more for Machine to machine (M2M) than IoT or even smart city.
