The biggest shift for traditional companies becoming IoT companies is transitioning into an Information Technology company. IoT technology isn’t plug ‘n’ play but it can be built. More difficult is changing a company’s culture to revolve around the information.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) for a primer on big data and the interplay between analytics, databases and cloud services ...


Although these are still early days in IoT deployments, the benefits of fog computing are already coming into focus. As deployment scale goes up, so too does the amount of data captured and the volume can quickly become overwhelming. Depending on the scale, running security, local analytics and data optimization closer to the sensors can be beneficial.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to get an overview on fog computing ...


Backhaul solutions for the Internet of Things are getting more sophisticated and Stream Technologies is a good example. Customers will buy connectivity from Stream to abstract their backhaul network so they don’t need to concern themselves with different mobile and satellite operators and their different contracts and pricing.

Janusz Bryzek is a man on a mission. A mission to cure world hunger and eliminate the lack of global medical care, clean air, clean water and clean energy within 20 years. That’s all. He’s doing his part with his Trillion Sensors Initiative to realize one of the eight technologies required to bring about “abundance” as defined by visionary Peter Diamantis.

First, the audio quality for this video is low. Unfortunately the mic was rubbing on Todd’s jacket – I’m still learning. Second, this is a little more “sales-y” than usual but worth watching to understand the PubNub service but to also hear Todd’s views on the demise of the IoT Platform (near the end).
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Todd Greene discuss the PubNub service and the future of the IoT stack ...


These are still early days for Internet of Things security. Mark pegs the level of security robustness at a 5 or 6 out of 10 for consumer IoT products and for certain segments, like IoT cameras, lower. We are currently feeling the pain of IoT product makers getting creative with security methods when they aren’t qualified to do so. This will settle down and the level will rise after a few years when best practises emerge.

There are three layers of standardization in IoT networking: First, to get the data off the devices, a wireless (and sometimes a wired) interface is required - this is the media layer. To aggregate the data from all these devices, networking is required – this is the networking layer. Then once the devices can talk to each other, the question is what they talk to each other – this is the application layer.

GE considers the opportunity of extracting value from industrial Internet data so great that it has changed big parts of its business to take advantage of it. At the heart of this transformation are business models more directly aligned with their customers’ business objectives and a new, more inclusive partnership approach to delivering value.
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Dave Bartlett describe why an IoT platform and ecosystem are required to provide the collaborative framework needed to enable multiple companies to jointly provide the outcomes that customers find most valuable ...


Although they are often named the same, the media layer of IoT networking consists of two separate parts: the radio to transmit the data and the protocol to exchange the data with the receiver. Important for many reasons including updatability. While the hardware can be in place for long periods of time, you can expect protocols to change every few years as exemplified by the 802.15.4 standard which is currently on version m.

Accenture identified IoT as a bona fide trend in its 2014 Technology Vision Report, with the thesis, the digital-physical blur is extending intelligence to the edge. So why has it taken 10 years for IoT to get its due respect?
Watch this video (or read the transcript) to hear Prith Banerjee explain why Accenture thinks the real opportunity in IoT is in unconventional growth – top line growth. How new services/apps can be created when physical assets are digitized and how journey from a product company to a platform company is transformational ...
