The Internet of Things (IoT) has had at least a thousand definitions from end point, gateway, datacenter and cloud companies. Companies like Cisco Systems , Dell , Hewlett-Packard , IBM and Intel are talking a lot about IoT. But what is IoT really about? IoT is about making decisions at the right place and at the right time. By following this “mantra” organizations can optimize systems to provide business value, whether it be to predict or prevent a costly shutdown or to alter a piece of…

I suppose it makes sense that cutting edge industrial ‘internet of things’ technology is increasingly happening on the edges – meaning on the far edges of networks, often directly on devices. Rather than moving mountains of data directly from devices into the cloud, where it can be collected, analyzed, and – presumably – put to good use, more and more grunt work of IoT is being handled by software-enabled hardware attached to equipment. That’s one…

In 2019, Vodafone’s annual Internet of Things (IoT) barometer (registration required) reported with optimism about the impact of the IoT as adoption surged during the year. After surveying close to 1,500 qualified executives involved in shaping their company’s IoT strategy, suppliers and requirements across a variety of industries and regions, Vodafone found some 34% were already using IoT solutions, and of those, some 76% described their IoT project as mission-critical. What’s more, some 95% of these adopters…

In short Covid-19 is leading to a surge in IT, OT and IoT security adoption.IoT Analytics published a comprehensive 123-page report detailing the $2.8B IoT Security market (2019), including current trends, technologies, and competitive landscape.IoT Analytics suggests for organizations to particularly look at 5 IoT Security best practices after the Covid-19 lockdown: 1.

Recent projections from Juniper Research put the number of IoT connections at 83 billion by 2024. It’s an eye-watering figure, and although similar predictions from other analysts are often a little more conservative, it speaks to just how influential IoT will be at the edge for businesses across sectors over the coming decade. The business benefits promise to be as vast and varied as the industries where IoT devices will be found. Access to more real-time data across…

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can be a force for good in helping organisations to drive sustainable initiatives forward. Companies now need to look at reducing material usage, increasing reuse and lessening corporate carbon footprints as commercial imperatives on top of being the right thing to do. New digital technologies are powering the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and IIoT lets companies reduce waste, cut costs, extend machine lifetimes and be ethically sound into the…
