The connected world around us is evolving at a breath taking pace. Some people refer to it as the Internet of Things, others call it The Internet of Everything or the hyper-connected world.

In this presentation given at an Akamai event in London on April 21st, Akamai's CEO and co-founder Dr. Tom Leighton outlines four Grand Challenges created as a result of the massive quantities of video moving online, the rising movement of online transactions and media to mobile devices, an ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of security attacks and the rapid migration of enterprise applications to the cloud.
