The Internet of Things (IoT) wave may impact businesses and industry verticals differently but with the same potential: IoT opens new doors to interesting use cases that have immediate business impact and value. Splunk has delivered Operational Intelligence and Analytics in IT and Security for years, so why not apply Operational Intelligence and Analytics to IoT?

Arm Unveils AI, ML Chips for IoT and Edge

Article | February 11, 2020

Arm wants to help IoT and other embedded devices to think for themselves. Today the company unveiled two chips designed to eliminate the reliance on cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) by delivering machine learning (ML) capabilities right on the device.“Enabling AI everywhere requires device makers and developers to deliver machine learning locally on billions and ultimately trillions of devices,” said Dipti Vachani, SVP and general manager of Arm’s automotive and IoT line of business, in a statement. The Cortex-M55 processor is the company’s first to leverage the Armv8.1-M architecture and features Arm’s Helium vector processing technology, which is designed with ML and digital signal processing in mind.

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | February 11, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.

Which IoT Applications will Benefit Most from Edge Computing?

Article | February 11, 2020

Edge computing refers to information being processed at the edge of the network, rather than being sent to a central cloud server. The benefits of edge computing include reduced latency, reduced costs, increased security and increased business efficiency. Transferring data from the edge of a network takes time, particularly if the data is being collected in a remote location. While the transfer may usually take less than a second, glitches in the network or an unreliable connection may increase the time required. For some IoT applications, for example, self-driving cars, even a second may be too long. Imagine a security camera that’s monitoring an empty hallway. There’s no need to send hours of large video files of an empty hallway to a cloud server (where you will need to pay to store them). With edge computing, the video could be sent to the cloud only if there is movement detected in the hallway.

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

Article | February 11, 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.
