Episode 81

There’s no denying it, robots are cool, even more cool when you call them cyber-physical systems, which is what they are, but they’re also IoT systems. And applying the thinking of IoT to robots makes them even cooler and more valuable because instead of being discrete systems, they can be integrated as a component of an IoT environment, working together with other components, to deliver outcomes.

Episode 74

Let’s face it, deploying IoT within a company, especially a large one, is an exercise in change management. To be successful on this multi-year journey takes a lot of planning, getting your priorities straight, some politicking and a bit of luck. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel, learn from your peers.

It seems like predictive analytics gets all the attention these days but generally speaking, it requires either a Data Scientist or a machine learning algorithm operating on lots of event data, in order to predict the all-important dimension of time, at least to any degree of useful certainty. Enter prognostic analytics. In a closed system of uniform conditions, prognostic analytics can make better predictions about the “when”.

Using the Internet of Things in retail virtualizes the shopping environment so it can be analysed to increase the store’s efficiency in converting foot traffic into sales.

Whether the Internet product is a discrete product, a system or infrastructure, more often than not, its end nodes are sitting in the wild – just waiting for a bad actor to get their hands on them. This physical accessibility introduces a new category of attack surfaces that need to be protected against.

Big data analytics is generally answering questions about the past, whereas streaming analytics answers questions about the present. But what if you could bring the two together and answer questions about the present based on what happened in the past?

Episode 67

They say data is the new oil. Well if that’s the case, then like oil, crude data must be refined and packaged to make it useful and consumable. If you believe, like I believe, that all incremental value from an Internet product comes from transforming its data into useful information, then external sources of data, when combined with internal data, can become very valuable, indeed.

Episode 66

It takes a lot, and I mean a lot, to get me to download yet another app on my phone, especially one that’s going to try to sell me something… but, I’m open to Retail-IoT tech. I’m not much of a physical shopper, probably because I find the whole shopping experience so dreary, but this so called offline-online convergence within retail has piqued my interest.

Episode 65

If you’ve been listening to my show for a while you know I’m a lover of IoT platforms. It just doesn’t make sense to create your own plumbing from scratch – especially since there are so many beauties to choose from that sport business models that are so agreeable early on. But what about open source platforms – are they ready yet for primetime?
