The Emergence of M2M/IoT Application Platforms

The M2M platforms space is evolving fast and in recent years a range of different kinds of M2M platforms have emerged to assist with the development and deployment of M2M applications. However, the industry is now at a tipping point, where the old ‘stove-pipe’ M2M application approach is giving way to a more integrated approach to application development which draws from a wider range of data sources (including M2M connected devices of different types and also corporate and other IT systems) and stitches these together with more sophisticated applications.

Profitable Connections: The Money to be Made by Banks in the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Money may be an abstract ’entity’, but there are many things connected to it that banks can digitize, measure, and analyze to drive profits. The physical things a bank provides (branches, ATMs, mobile apps, and so on) connect to the physical things a customer has (say, mobile devices and wearables) while conducting financial transactions (such as a purchase, a home mortgage, a car loan, or an equipment lease). It’s clear that banks have only just begun to mine these items and their multiplying connections, to engage effectively with customers and establish newer business models for profitable growth.

Beyond Statistics:Frontiers for Artificial Intelligence in the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

Driverless cars, which are examples of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), are attracting a lot of attention. The car needs sensors to know and process the changing and dynamic environment, as well as intelligence to make driving decisions in real time. It’s analogous to the human body, which senses the environment, uses intelligence to process sensory experience, has an autonomous capability to decide what to do, and actuators to carry out the decisions. If we go over the 4D cycle of autonomous systems—detect, derive, decide, do—we note that both IoT and AI play a role in such systems.

Driving Value from the Internet of Things (IoT)

whitePaper | February 5, 2018

With billions of devices—including cars, homes, airplanes, apparels, parking meters, wearables, factories, oil rigs, and heavy machinery—connected to the internet, the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to be the most disruptive technological advance in recent ages. According to research from IDC, about 30 billion things will be connected by 20201, helping enterprises drive efficiencies and launch new products and services. As adoption continues to increase, and as new use cases emerge, organizations are starting to leverage IoT as an engine to improve and innovate product performance, drive internal efficiencies through predictive maintenance, and enhance customer experience.
