You’ve heard of the KISS principle, right? Keep it Simple Stupid… Well, I don’t think many consumer smart product makers have. Maybe it’s just where we are in the IoT evolutionary cycle but often they take a perfectly fine, and simple, product and heap on to it a lot of complexity when making it smart. Even worst, this complexity often adds very little incremental value.
Listen to this analysis episode (or read the transcript) with Bruce Sinclair where he discusses how making products smart often reduces their value instead of increasing it ...

Episode 57

Driverless cars, or autonomous vehicles, are the ultimate consumer IoT product. They represent the state of the art in sensors, apps and analytics but they share the same DNA as say, a smart lock. Whatever’s under the hood, driverless cars will save lives, save time and save fuel.
Listen to this analysis episode with Bruce Sinclair where he discusses why driverless cars are coming so fast and the IoT technology under the hood ...


Traditional System Integrators (SIs) are setting their sights on integrating the systems of the Internet of Things. And why not; due to networking inoperability and the immature state of IoT platforms and their corresponding ecosystems, for the foreseeable future most enterprises deploying IoT are going to need a helping hand.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) video to see Jayraj Nair discuss the ins and outs of working with a System Integrator (SI) on your Internet of Things project ...




Episode 56

Black hat, white hat… gray hat? What does it all mean? In this context, the different colored hats refer to the different approaches to testing the cyber security of your IT, or in our case, IoT infrastructure.
