"Digital technologies are significantly expanding telehealth’s scope and adoption. Digital telehealth has gone beyond the healthcare provider industry and has attracted interest from the retail, life insurance, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications industries. And it’s attracting health consumers interested in wellness, health promotion and disease prevention. Digital technologies have been key game changers for traditional telehealth. While mHealth has been associated with telehealth for a while now, its role is expanding significantly with expansion of the Internet of things (IOT) into healthcare. The volume of data generated, especially with expansion of telehealth into the wellness space and the social media listening, is projected to be huge. This white paper explores the tremendous possibilities for advanced analytics to make medical research more meaningful, create more robust evidence based medicine and more individualized behavioral interventions. Most importantly, how it can make care delivery and clinical outcomes are expected more effective, efficient, cheaper and accessible when digital technologies are used in telehealth services."

IoT Security Flaws Are Putting Your Business at Risk

Article | March 5, 2020

As industries invest in the next generation of technology, the internet of things is at the top of the list. Once a novelty best known in residential settings, IoT technology has become mainstream in business and industry. Some even predict that having a Google Home or Amazon Echo in the conference room will become the norm. Now, you will find connected devices in Amazon’s warehouse robotics system Kiva, Airbus’ Factory of the Future and the augmented reality used by Caterpillar in its Cat Connect system. The number of IoT devices in use by 2025 could reach 22 billion, according to an IoT Analytics report. They will transform manufacturing, warehouse and logistics, health care, agriculture, shipping, energy and aviation. IoT security can’t be done as an afterthought; it must be integrated into operations from Day One because connected devices and systems use cryptographic keys that transmit data. Cybercriminals can gain access through these keys, allowing them to infect devices and systems with malware, steal data or shut down systems. Sometimes, the vulnerability has gone undetected for months.

Role of IoT in HVAC

Article | February 17, 2020

Implementation of the “Internet of Things” in the modern world is gaining pace at breakneck speed. Society is moving away from standalone devices and entering the realm of inter-connectivity. With uses in different facets of life, such as personal gadgets, retail, electricity distribution and financial services, IoT is making its mark. One such application field of IoT is in Smart Homes, or more specifically in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning industry (HVAC). According to a report by Zion Market Research, the global smart HVAC control market is expected to reach almost USD 28.3 billion by 2025 as compared to USD 8.3 billion in 2018. Amalgamation of the HVAC industry and IoT provides for vastly superior customer-centric services, enabling remote appliance control as a first step.

GSMA Intelligence’s principal IoT analyst Sylwia Kechiche explores enterprises’ digital transformation journey. For better or worse, the IoT has captured the public attention. Yet, while news headlines focuses mostly on consumer devices being connected (speakers, cars, fridges, drones), this is just one part of the story. Purely connecting devices is not the IoT end-game. Rather, it is about the data these devices generate, the insights derived and actions taken as a result to create value and benefit consumers, enterprises and wider society. We are now at the point that IoT is real: it has moved beyond novelty factor and proof of concepts. MWC19 witnessed that, but it also left unanswered questions that are still being grappled with.
