A lot's changed in a year. Enterprise organizations aren't just talking about the possibilities of the Internet of Things (IoT) anymore. Many now see it as core to their strategy.
IoT is now mainstream.
Over the last year, enterprises shook off a "start small, think big" mindset to IoT, and are now building it into their future strategies and business models. They're implementing solutions in areas like outpatient monitoring, predictive maintenance and energy data management.
The “Smart Cities” movement continues to gain traction, but what role is the Internet of Things (IoT) playing at the state level?
A new report released by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) reveals states are unprepared for the IoT movement: Only one out of five state CIOs say their state has moved to the formal discussion phase–and zero states have adopted policies and developed an IoT road map.
The IoT juggernaut continues: Forecasters like Gartner Research predict that the typical home will have nearly 500 networked devices by 2020 (not me; I’m still wondering why bother?). Big name companies like GE and Siemens pitch their IoT successes at various conferences.
New global research shows rapid adoption of intelligent machines used for automating and optimising business and IT processes. 92% of IT professionals surveyed recognise the technology is now central to the success of their business, but 68% acknowledge it raises new concerns about network security, access and controls
There are far more smart sensors in the world than there are people – and we have barely gotten started with smart devices. If you take a minute to let that seep in, you’ll realize just how extraordinary this is. Factory machines, hospital beds, cars, bridges, grocery store shelves, light fixtures, farming equipment – they all are outfitted with sensors that monitor activity and generate vast amounts of data. But in most cases, after the data is collected, only a fraction of it is used. That’s too bad, because there are real stories in this data just waiting to be told.
We’re in the midst of a new technology shift in which billions of devices and objects — from cars to wearables to drones — are becoming intelligently connected. Referred to as the Internet of Things — or IoT — it promises to make consumers’ lives more efficient, more convenient, and more enjoyable, and to transform industries by enabling new services, new business models, and new experiences.
It seems we are in a perpetual waiting game for the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) to become a reality. Despite this wait, if the IoT is realized in a way that all the electronic devices we use today—and maybe some that haven’t been invented yet— are be able to communicate in a vast network, it could enable an optimization of resources that will be such a game-changer that noted economic and social theorist, Jeremy Rikfin, has suggested that it will represent the next industrial revolution.
The emerging Web of Things (WoT hereafter) subset of IoT incorporates a set of requirements that, while modest by the wider IoT scheme of things, presents challenges to currently accepted Web behavioural set.
Monohm believes that most of the challenges presented by emerging WoT requirements can be met using existing standard protocols.
Following ten successful conferences in Europe and two ground-breaking conferences in Asia, the International Conference on E-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM) Asia 2016 will be hosted in Daegu, South Korea, on 7-9 December, 2016.
In a world where smartphones are ubiquitous; where more and more devices are becoming “smart” – everyone is a digital citizen. This means every action creates a data point. These data points are currently being harvested by other companies and in many cases, without your knowledge. This has to change.
