Energy Harvesting Wireless Power for the Internet of Things

The IoT will radically alter our world through “smart” connectivity, save time and resources, and provide opportunities for innovation and economic growth. In a cold chain monitoring system, for example, temperature data from food containers could be used to alert someone when temperatures approach thresholds and investigation or maintenance of the cooler is required. This data, collected from thousands of containers, can be consolidated to find potential gaps in the temperature-controlled supply chain for optimized logistic processing. the IoT’s sensory organs can be cheap, tiny and placed everywhere indoors and outdoors, even on the body. The more sensor data is available the better the insight into the application and system status.

M2M & Internet of Healthcare Things

whitePaper |

Major market forces are reshaping the healthcare landscape. Sweeping changes ushered in by the Affordable Care Act and a public mandate to stem continually rising healthcare costs mean that healthcare providers must find ways to become leaner and more efficient without sacrificing quality of care or patient service. These pressures have begun to turn the standard reimbursement model on its head, shifting from a pay-for service model to a pay-for-value model that focuses on wellness and prevention. Patients, too, demand a greater focus on wellness and preventive services. With the Internet at their fingertips, patients now feel a greater sense of empowerment and choice, and are driving the “consumerization of healthcare.” Today’s savvy patients seek providers who can turn the litany of available patient data into actionable, personalized insights, and help enable wellness outside the doctor’s office.

IDC Technology Spotlight - IoT: Partnerships are Critical for Success

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a market construct that has emerged over the past several years and is quickly becoming a critical element in the digital transformation of many organizations. The IoT represents an evolution in organizations' strategies for connected products and processes. It will create complex interworkings within organizations as many different stakeholders will need to understand the value that connecting, managing, and monitoring endpoints will provide. Vendors and service providers are looking for ways to garner mindshare with their customers. IDC believes that the best IoT solutions will come from vendors that develop best-in-class partnerships as a means of providing a holistic IoT solution for their customers.

What is the Internet of Things – and what does it mean for us all?

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things (IoT) feels like an idea whose time has come. Press and analysts are talking about it, conferences are being organised and the first IoT products are beginning to appear. So let’s begin by looking at what the Internet of Things is, and what it is not. A good definition is from BT - “The Internet of Things refers to technologies that allow networked devices to sense other devices and interact and communicate with them.” The ‘Things’ are real world objects – essentially anything that can have a sensor embedded within it and is able to communicate wirelessly with the wider world, such as vehicles, machines, buildings, people, animals, goods or the environment around us. One Dutch farmer has fitted his cows with sensors so he can be alerted to any health issues or when they need milking.

Realizing the Promise of the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Many technology trends remain hype and rarely make it to the realm of our everyday reality. Internet of Things (IoT) started off as being futuristic, something to be aspired to, but difficult to apply in the way we live or run businesses. However, today organizations are slowly uncovering the potential of connected devices and sensors that communicate and interact with each other. Organizations are discovering ways to generate business value from IoT, thanks to the proliferation of cloud based services and analytics. The quality of real-time information from IoT related technologies will take the guesswork out of decision-making. And yet, despite the myriad opportunities it offers, IoT adoption has been relatively slow till date. This could be due to the lack of preparedness by businesses with respect to the infrastructure and processes required to deploy – and realize the full potential of – this disruptive technology.
