IoT security: An IBM position paper

Coined by Kevin Ashton in 19991, the term Internet of Things (IoT) has come to denote the widespread deployment of sensors and actuators with ubiquitous interconnectivity, potentially to the Internet, to monitor and control physical systems and critical infrastructure such as electrical utilities, transportation systems, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, factories, and buildings. The goals of the effort have been to gain better visibility and understanding into the operation of these systems and to effect change that would lead to vastly improved efficiencies of operation.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.

Accelerating the Impact of Industrial IoT in Small and Medium‑Sized Enterprises

whitePaper | February 12, 2020

Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector are being left behind in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This worrying trend is exacerbating economic inequality, stifling opportunities for social mobility and dragging down global industrial productivity. To benefit from the technological advancements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, SMEs will need to overcome a range of challenges including a dearth of skilled employees, lack of access to capital and unclear returns on investment, a need to revamp their firm’s infrastructure and processes, a need to update information technology and operational technology, and navigate a nascent technology landscape that is currently poised to serve larger companies.

Empowering DSOs to secure the Smart Grid

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

As the world’s growing need for energy meets the power of the Internet of Things, the traditional energy marketplace is rapidly transforming. Millions of meters and energy assets are connected and digitized each year, providing enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem: real time tracking of energy production and consumption data, optimized load balancing systems, streamlined operations and billing systems to name a few. As connectivity expands and the landscape is digitalizing, new distributed energy resources (DERs) and stakeholders are able to integrate into and expand the grid. DERs offer non-carbon resources that improve the energy sector’s overall carbon footprint, a key benefit for everyone.
