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.

The Importance of IoT Platforms Through the Eyes of an MVNO

Article | March 1, 2020

IoT has a massive scope and too many requirements that can leave even the best of telecom operators clueless. With exalted predictions in the near future (some estimate that IoT devices will cross the 40 billion mark by 2025), the pressure on IoT service providers is immense. There is a need to automate the management of connected devices and sensors, which is why a comprehensive IoT platform has become the need of the hour. Every single one of these platforms plays a huge role in the overall functioning of sensors and devices that form the entire IoT universe. An IoT platform serves as a middleware that connects devices/sensors. It contains an assortment of functions such as controllers and sensors, a communication network, a gateway device, translating and data analysis software along with end application services. IoT platforms are equipped to handle vast quantities of data, applications, subscribers, websites, sensors and devices, and at the same time triggers actions according to the input, in real-time.

Smart Submeters And Their Key Benefits

Article | March 1, 2020

Energy management and efficiency utilization are the challenges for building owners, facility managers, and tenants. With the traditional metering solutions, building owners can’t measure accurate consumptions, usage patterns, and downtimes. It is simple: You can’t manage if you can’t measure. Building owners and tenants have been speculating about bettering and changing their approach to optimize energy consumption by deploying smart submeters. In contrast to traditional electrical meter, a smart submeter is infused with network connectivity features to upload the data. They track, monitor, measure, and upload data to servers for real-time visibility. Earlier building owners used to bill according to the space occupied by the tenants. Think about inaccurate billing – have you ever seen a bill that confused you?

A three-step approach to successful IoT adoption

Article | March 1, 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.
