Gaining Business Value from the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to drastically change the way products and services are developed, sold and consumed. The IoT is capturing the attention of executives who want to differentiate their offerings and value-add through connected solutions. IoT is providing companies with the ability to capture and analyze new types of data at faster rates than ever imagined.

The Non-Geek's A-to-Z Guide to the Internet of Things

whitePaper | August 25, 2019

Defining the Internet of Things isn’t easy. When it’s defined in terms of market size, some focus on the potential revenue (it’s in the trillions), while others focus on the number of potential “things” (it’s in the billions). Some definitions focus on the exponential growth of sensors, excluding smartphones, tablets and desktop computers, while others only consider devices with an IP address. Whether these definitions and forecasts are accurate or not, it can be downright confusing. How would you define the Internet of Things (or IoT, as it is commonly called)? If you were to ask 20 people, you would most likely end up with 21 different definitions, including yours. And guess what? That’s OK. It’s not important that we all agree on a single definition. What’s important is that we understand the context or frame of reference in which the Internet of Things is being discussed.

The Social Internet of Things (SIoT) – When Social Networks meet the Internet of Things: Concept, Architecture and Network Characterization

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Internet of Things, which leads to the so called “Social Internet of Things” (SIoT) paradigm. Recently, the SIoT has been the subject of several independent research activities as it promises to achieve scalable 33 solutions in networks interconnecting trillions of nodes and to support new interesting applications. More specifically, in this paper we have identified the types and the characteristics of the social relationships that can be established by objects in the SIoT. Furthermore, we have proposed a system architecture and the required basic functionality for an implementation of the SIoT. Finally, we have statistically analyzed the structure of the SIoT network.

A Study in Hype, Reality, Disruption, and Growth

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

We do not believe an “S” curve of adoption for the Internet of Things is likely, as the concept is broad and will have differing growth curves in different end markets. It is more helpful from an investment perspective to think of the IoT as a series of vertical market solutions that may witness growth at various rates over the next decade or more, all of which aggregates to 15-30% or so annual growth for the concept in totality. The vertical markets that have the most opportunity for accelerated growth in the next two to three years include home automation, connected car, and wearable devices.

Re-imagining Asset Management with Internet of Things (IoT)

whitePaper | November 7, 2017

A lot has been said about ways in which Internet of Things (IoT) can transform companies. Mind numbing figures in expected savings and CXO surveys showing that majority is already investing or planning to invest in IoT make it a ‘must look at’ initiative. The moment Internet of Things is brought into an industrial perspective; the benefits are either in one or more of these realms: increasing efficiency, reducing cost or improving customer experience.
