71% of Industrial IoT Projects are stuck in "Pilot Purgatory" due to lack of resources or knowledge to scale. Manufacturers have been automating their processes and equipment for decades, yet more manufacturers operate below 45% efficiency than above 85%. IoT, cloud services, machine learning, AI, digital twin are all enablers of extreme productivity – value is achieved through scale, not in isolated and siloed deployments of these enablers.

Run-Time Provisioning of Security Credentials for IoT Devices

Article | March 20, 2020

To prevent counterfeit devices from joining a network or to limit the opportunity for network attacks, it’s important to authenticate devices attempting to join Internet of Things (IoT) networks and subsequently connect only authorized devices. The standard mechanism to securely authenticate clients connecting to a server is transport-layer-security (TLS) client-side authentication. To implement such authentication in an IoT network, the appropriate certificate authority (CA)—usually the IoT device provider—issues a unique X.509 certificate to each IoT device and the associated private key that functions as a unique security credential for the IoT device. Once the certificate and associated private key are stored on the IoT device, it may use them during the TLS client-authentication process to securely join the IoT network.

IoT Adoption: Before and After COVID-19

Article | March 20, 2020

The survey data I’m referring to comes from a study conducted by the Eclipse Foundation about the adoption of commercial Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The aim of the study was to get a better understanding of the IoT industry landscape by identifying the requirements, priorities, and challenges faced by organizations deploying and using commercial IoT technologies. More than 350 respondents from multiple industries responded, with about a quarter of respondents coming from industrial production businesses. While this survey was not solely focused on the manufacturing and processing industries, its results reflect the general business community’s IoT adoption at the end of 2019. As such, it is a pre-COVID-19 snapshot of IoT adoption.

From outside-in to inside-out: My take on IoT

Article | March 20, 2020

At IDC I co-founded a practice that studied the three dimensions of IoT: industry technology platforms, industry verticals and industry geographies. As an industry analyst, I had a front-row ticket to the IoT market and continually witnessed incredible innovations. Like many other experts, I kept my seatbelt buckled for what we expected to be IoT’s massive and dramatic take-off. While there has been uptake, real-world adoption and implementation have lagged the “hype.” In time, I found myself growing increasingly frustrated at the disconnect. What was the holdup? Knowing that industry analysts are beholden to the marketing messages that each company shares, I welcomed an opportunity to make the move from an outside-in analyst to an inside-out contributor.

Smart Building Initiatives are the Building Blocks of a Smart City

Article | March 20, 2020

To paraphrase a well-known saying, the journey to a complete smart city begins with a single building. No matter the size of the city, the extent of the technology or the most helpful use cases, a prospective smart city can integrate into — or branch off of — initiatives pushed forward by a smart building or campus. And when there is an increasing demand for these types of solutions, large corporations have the opportunity to improve corporate and social governance practices, as well as stand out in their community by championing more connected technologies.
