Big data and Internet of Things (IoT) are the keys of the success for a large number of (if not all) companies, but their exploitation requires to deal with privacy and compliance issues.
We just ran our first Big Data Workshop which was very well attended by banking and insurance companies as well as technology, telecom and consumables companies showing that the topic of big data is relevant for companies active in a very broad range of industries. I made available our presentation here and below is a short outline of the covered topics
SAN FRANCISCO — Nest, one of the most recognizable names in home automation, unveiled a welcome refresh of its product line here Wednesday. There's slightly smarter software for the thermostat, a slightly thinner, slightly smarter version of the smoke alarm — the $99 Nest Protect — and a slightly thinner, slightly smarter, heavily rebranded version of the Dropcam, now the $199 Nest Cam.
Indore : Indore, a leading city of the MP, has the natural and ready platform to become a smart city. This due and deserving fact puts more responsibility on the politicians and bureaucrats to handle the project efficiently. But, it seems that the concepts of the politicians as well as bureaucrats are not clear about the ambitious project. It should also be kept in mind that the entire city should be developed as a smart city not in few pieces.
"The success of IoT enables and is dependent on strong customer service and support."
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly interlacing with every business and consumer product.
So much so that the success of IoT enables and is dependent on strong customer service and support.
According to analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, IoT can create a strong return on investment (ROI) by reducing support costs, increasing customer loyalty and referrals, uncovering insights to cross-sell or up-sell to customers, and developing customer-appealing products.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Organizations will soon be creating a new wave of transformative digital services driven by the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and shifting consumer expectations, finds a new report from Accenture (NYSE:ACN).

“We call them ‘Living Services’ for three reasons”
The arrival of the Apple Watch in stores may herald the first hands-on experience with the internet of things (IoT) for many in Hong Kong but it is almost certainly not the first time their lives have been touched by it. Put simply, IoT is the rapidly expanding universe of objects that have the ability to gather and transfer data over a network without requiring human interaction.
Smartphones, mobile applications, and computing services are omnipresent in our daily lives. Mobile and wearable computers interact wireless with numerous sensors from a distance (Scoble & Israel, 2014, p. xx). Their omnipresence makes sure that we are never unconnected from the network of ubiquitous information and, via that network, from others. Our situation is one of ‘continuous connectivity’.
It’s hard to avoid. Almost every CEO’s conversation about how IT is driving innovation inevitably comes back to the potential of big data. But data is inherently dumb. It doesn’t actually do anything unless you know how to use it. And big data is even harder to monetise due to the sheer complexity of it.
The next generation of mobile technology is still at least five years away. But when it arrives New Zealand could be among the first countries to get it. The telecommunications industry still hasn't nailed down a detailed plan for 5G, but Alex Wang, Huawei vice-president of wireless marketing, says his company is determined to play a leading role in its development.
Speaking at Huawei's leafy 2sq km Shenzhen campus, Wang says 4G is now mainstream mobile technology. It works well but there's already a need for something more.
Smart city is finding its way into public discourse. Simply put, smart city refers to making good use of advanced information technology architecture to address urban issues and enhance the quality of life in a community.
It may manifest itself in more efficient and responsive public services, a more tech-savvy citizenry and a cleaner environment, among other things.
In his policy address in January, Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying unveiled plans to develop a smart city in Kowloon East.
We are working on very interesting Internet of Things projects and the feeling is always that lawyers are involved at the very late stage when the product is already completed and ready to be launched in the very next days. At that stage a “negotiation” between the legal team and the technical and commercial teams starts on what changes can be implemented without requiring further developments/costs, what risks should be taken, and whenever lawyers raise an issue, the technical and commercial teams have almost a “heart attack“…
