The potential value in the Internet of Things (IoT) is bringing to a fever pitch the focus on data as one of the enterprise’s most valuable assets. Clearly, those who carefully collect, transform, analyze, model and report on IoT data are seeing their influence rise. As much of this work is settling around the data scientist role, I talked with Don DeLoach, CEO of Infobright, provider of an analytics database platform, about what data scientists are being asked to do now, and how those responsibilities around IoT data might change in the near future.

Proximal Data

Proximal Data is an innovative creator of I/O intelligence within hypervisors. Our technology allows for the granular characterization of each I/O in real time, complete with how the I/O is mapped through the hypervisor and how to control the I/O in the right context. Our first product, AutoCache software, uses these innovations to dramatically increase virtual machine density and performance by eliminating I/O bottlenecks without disrupting IT operations. AutoCache is the most simple, cost-effective way to use Enterprise Flash in the datacenter.

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | March 24, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) sensors predominantly provide visibility to an operating stack – enabling access to real-time and accurate operational data. Laying analysis on top of that data produces dashboards and other visual representations but artificial intelligence (AI) extends this further by harnessing the data streams to train models and identify patterns. Observations can then be made by a computer much like a human analyst could but at tremendous speed and scale. AI makes it possible to anticipate and predict events in a robust and scalable way. This can create huge business advantages. In this article, we’ll look at applications of AI and IoT in construction.

What Is IoT Forensics? Challenges Ahead and Best Tools to Use

Article | March 24, 2020

Internet of Things, generally known as IoT, is a network of objects or things. Embedded sensors help connect and exchange data with other objects via the internet. IoT is often related to the concept of smart homes, including devices like home security systems, cameras, lighting, refrigerators, etc. With all this data being transmitted over the internet, it is easy for the data to be modified, deleted, or stolen, which can lead to an invasion, theft, etc. IoT forensics plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and security of the data being transmitted. Join us as we explore this fascinating web of devices and how you can get started in this vibrant field of forensics.

5 Ways to Secure Your IoT Devices—Before They Get Hacked

Article | March 24, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) devices make our lives more efficient and our day-to-day more convenient. They allow us to monitor our homes from afar, control our lights, thermostats, and locks and beef up the security of our homes—among a host of other things. But because smart devices have become so integrated into our lives, they leave us vulnerable to cybercrime too. In general, IoT devices have little to no built-in security, making them top targets for hackers. And since most IoT devices are interconnected, it puts your whole suite of devices at risk if even one gets hacked. Just as you lock your front door before you go to bed, you’ll want to make sure your IoT devices are secure before you start using them.

AR Indoor Navigation Technology Connects Retailers With Shoppers

Article | March 24, 2020

Technology drives innovation, and for most retail companies, the “Transform or Die” motto still rings true. Retailers are always experimenting with the latest tech innovations to reshape the customer experience to alter their expectations both in physical stores and online. But simply following every hot trend in the industry because of the fear of missing out (FOMO) is one of the most common mistakes retailers make when adopting emerging technologies. The retailers who thrive in their respective markets are the ones who learn how to implement technologies that deliver the highest return on investment (ROI) from Gartner’s hype cycle for emerging technologies.
