Although the majority of companies know about IoT, not many understand the value they can extract from machine data right now; it’s all about the communication ability between the shop floor and the business environment.
No company can create an IoT solution alone, and vendors increasingly must form strategic partnerships that give them access to all necessary complementary technologies. An effective partnership will speed time to market for solutions that not only optimize the customer experience but also protect users and their personal data against growing cyber security threats while offering the scalability to support growth and changing requirements.
Complex IoT solutions require more attention to product design details. Common mistakes companies make when they embark on an IoT product design project can delay or even cripple implementation.
If you’re in a rush or have a small attention span, here’s the short answer to “what's an IoT solution?”: An IoT...
Technologies, such as RFID and IIoT, help to address cold chain inefficiencies by providing increased visibility into the locations, properties, and conditions of sensitive products.
Though IoT applications offer a host of advantages which will surely cause a disruption in technology as we know it, it comes with a fresh set of challenges, which need to be addressed in order to make it work effectively.
As businesses invest in building IoT networks, they need to learn how to keep their information safe in the cloud. A few of these approaches include raising awareness and education about security risks and securing personal devices.
There's mounting pressure in the automotive industry to transform from mechanical-centric into software-defined vehicles. Manufacturers and suppliers will have to implement innovative software-based solutions to stay relevant and to keep up with consumers’ expectations.
The challenges surrounding IoT security remain today’s primary adoption rate inhibitor. Along with VPNs, a popular solution to today's IoT security challenge is found in software-defined perimeters (SDPs).
IoT is advancing building automation beyond mere optimizations. It's bringing systems together and adding new value, through innovations like demand control and the way it improves air quality. But we must remember that IoT-based analytics platforms work only because they connect people with technology—without humans at the helm, they’re of little value.
