Connected Fleet Management: Why a Unified Network is Key

Article | April 15, 2020

As consumer demands evolve, fleet managers are turning to IoT to deliver products faster and more efficiently. The progress being made in edge computing represents the full potential of IoT: the power of data on the move. However, operating on the edge also reveals some of IoT’s greatest challenges: maintaining network security as the number of endpoints multiplies; rethinking traditional business models as industries become increasingly interdependent; and, perhaps most importantly, establishing a seamless, reliable network across borders, cultures, and regulatory environments.

Securing industrial networks: it’s a journey

Article | April 14, 2021

Trying to secure the industrial network in one go is like boiling the ocean. Better to view it as a journey. At each step in the journey, you’ll make incremental changes to people, process, and technology. Minimal security. This is the current state for most manufacturers. If you’re here, you’ve segmented the industrial network from the IT network. Traffic can’t cross from the IT network to the industrial network without clearing the DMZ. You can block malware from entering the industrial network. You can block malware from leaving the industrial network to infect the enterprise network. But if the industrial network is exposed to malicious software, you don’t have a way to contain it. That means the malware might affect multiple manufacturing cells or production lines — even multiple plants.

Cloud vendors jostling for share of IoT analytics

Article | March 1, 2020

ABI Research says cloud vendors are investing in the data and analytics services space as they attempt to get on board the IoT value chain. The researcher forecasts that cloud suppliers will grow their share of IoT data and analytics management revenues from US$6 billion in 2019 to US$56 billion in 2026. Cloud vendor’s revenues come primarily from streaming, storage, and the orchestration of data. Analytics services across cloud vendors, on the other hand, are less differentiated, as reflected in pre-built templates such as AWS Sagemaker and Microsoft Azure Notebooks which leverage the open source Jupyter project. Considering that many cloud vendors are in the early stages of analytics investment, cloud vendors are relying on their partners for addressing more specific advanced analytics and vertical market needs.

IoT as a Service: Lowering the Cost Barrier of IoT for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Article | March 18, 2020

There are already 20 billion IoT-connected devices, and 8 billion of those are devices used by enterprises, according to a report by Gartner. The impact of the Internet of Things market is potentially $11 trillion by 2025. The investment in IoT has come primarily from large businesses, but the technology is increasingly available via ‘as-a-service’, making it possible for businesses of all sizes to benefit. The ‘as-a-service’ model reduces the cost of ownership and capital expenditures and makes it easy for small businesses to investigate IoT with smaller up-font investments and less risk. Frank Della Rosa, research director at IDC, said that “Software as a Service (SaaS) continues to be the most highly deployed cloud segment, representing a commanding 62.4% of the total cloud market revenues.”
