Internet of Things: Dealmaking

By next year, nearly 6.5 billion objects ranging from light bulbs to medical devices in operating rooms will be connected to networks. By 2020, Gartner projects that objects inhabiting the Internet of Things are expected to grow to 20.8 million. Cisco is more bullish, suggesting that 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. The IoT is driving growth and M&A in sectors from telecom, software groups, device makers and others. Obtaining data from networked devices was behind IBM’s acquisition of Weather Co., which tracks information from 50,000 airplane flights per day and connects with 150,000 personal weather stations via its Weather Underground site. IBM hopes to capitalize on weather information with its Watson artificial intelligence operation.

Dec 17 RWDG Webinar: Data Governance and the Internet of Things

KIK Consulting,

Several years back there were already more devices connected to the internet than people. It is estimated that more than 20 billion devices will be connected by 2020 and that number will never fall. Connecting to the internet implies the transfer of data. The numbers of devices and what they transfer imply a lot of data. Who is governing all of this data? Join Bob Seiner for this month’s installment of Real-World Data Governance to expand your appreciation of the data issues that pertain to the Internet of Things (IoT). You may be surprised how much of what you already know about data governance applies to governing this new definition, production and use of data.

Choosing a Security Solution for IoT platforms

Device Authority

In our earlier blog, we discussed the reasons why IoT Security needs a customer centric approach. This blog will follow on and explore the importance of having a strong device identity and integrity, which are the new perimeter for IoT.

Industrial IoT: Scaling Systems Reliably and Securely

Mentor Graphics

As the Internet of Things continues to transform businesses and entire industries, key enabling technologies must evolve to address the ever-increasing requirements for these systems. Of particular note is the trend of “fog computing”, an architectural design where key functions (typically executed in powerful cloud server infrastructure) are pushed towards the network edge with the goal of making intelligent decisions locally to avoid flooding Internet bandwidth with raw data.

Getting Started with AWS IoT - February 2017 AWS Online Tech Talks

Amazon Web Services

AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. In this tech talk, we will discuss how constrained devices can leverage AWS IoT to send data to the cloud and receive commands back to the device from the cloud using the protocol of their choice.
