Stilgherrian recently wrote for ZDnet, “Not long ago, Dick Bussiere visited a power station. The visit was part of his job as Tenable Network Security’s principal architect for the Asia Pacific Region. And what did he find? A machine running Windows 2000 Server connected to the network, in control of things. That operating system is half a decade past its use-by date. Bussiere wasn’t surprised, however. In the world of the Internet of Things, all these things have a much longer life cycle.”

How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | April 17, 2020

Pharma is big business, but what it’s not generally recognized is, in large part, a manufacturing business with complex supply chains, finicky chemical processes and products that have to meet stringent quality controls. Few of those outside the industry think about how drugs are made safely, efficiently and at scale with reliable quality and in precisely measured doses. Even more interesting is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.

A three-step approach to successful IoT adoption

Article | April 17, 2020

Most would agree that the adoption rate of the Internet of Things (IoT) has fallen well short of predictions. Given the proven benefits that the IoT can deliver, such as preventative maintenance and real-time asset management, it’s confounding that every company isn’t well on its way to leveraging IoT. There are far more attempts to adopt the IoT than successes, says Terri Foudray, founder and CEO of Rumble, as well as several reasons that the IoT is not meeting or exceeding adoption forecasts. The culprits behind adoption failures include the lack of available talent, the overwhelming and complex volume of prospective vendors, the lack of a solid business case to define success, and the derailing of initiatives caused by unanticipated political and cultural pitfalls that often accompany enterprise-wide technology adoption.

In this arena where advanced technologies have been blooming at a tremendous rate, IoT is also catching up. IoT has been one such technology that is going to have an impact not only today but also in the coming future. The base for IoT is designed for storing and processing IoT data and is the core of all IoT-related devices and solutions. The base has been set in such a way that it provides an intake of huge volumes of data generated by sensors, user websites, applications and then accordingly initiates actions based on real-time responses and analytics.
