Technology has become fully integrated with every aspect of our lives. Wearable activity trackers and smart watches are capable of counting your footsteps, recording your location from moment to moment, registering what music you listen to, logging which episodes of what show you watched last night, monitoring how fast your heart is beating at any given minute, and analyzing when and how deeply you slept.
Newer automobiles are outfitted with sensors and monitors that transmit or record real-time information about your speed, location, driving events, and mechanical issues. Vehicle sensors can identify collision risks and automatically engage your car’s brakes when warranted. Your home thermostat, security devices, and even your garage door can be monitored and controlled using an app from thousands of miles away. Every day our world is connected by more objects (things) that are communicating with each other and with the Internet. This is commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (or IoT).
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
