Episode 72

When we buy an IoT Product for our home or our business, the advice is the same: read the fine print. There are plenty of technical obstacles that can be thrown in your way to stop you from having complete control over your data but sometimes the devil is in the details and these contractual details can have a major effect on your business.

Episode 71

Although kind of a sleeper, you’ve got to admit that Amazon has been coming on to be a force to be reckoned with in IoT. From their lightweight Dash button to the Amazon Echo to their heavyweight AWS services for IoT, this is the year Amazon has blipped on the Internet of Things radar.

Episode 68

An Internet, or Internet of Things product is complex. In fact, it’s not a product at all but a nested system of systems. The sheer number of technology and business issues to consider at the start can overwhelm even the best trained and most experienced manager.

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?

Episode 64

It’s no secret that the IIoT is enabling manufacturing to go through its next revolution. Some call it Industrie 4.0, but it goes further than the shop floor. The Industrial Internet (of Things) is virtualizing the entire manufacturing industry from supply chain to factory to distribution and along the way is having a profound effect on the workforce and the equipment used.

Episode 63

We all know, whether from experience or just intuitively, that bolting security on an IoT product after much of the development has been completed is a total rookie mistake, and a recipe for disaster. Yet this still happens. By crowdfunded startups who don’t mention security in their videos, to internal teams in larger enterprises who also emphasise the bling in order to get their project greenlit from within.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript) where I speak with Chris Romeo about the Security Development Lifecycle, the polar opposite to the bolt-on, that’s been successfully used in IT security for years ...
