Ushering in the #IoT | @ThingsExpo @Luxoft @AndersBrown #BigData #AI #ML

Ushering in the Internet of Insights: Moving from ‘Things' to ‘Decisions' With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if "my IoT is broken." What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience - effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets - people, objects, and spaces - can share information about themselves and their surroundings. And this data can help make better decisions through improved insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Anders Brown, Managing Director, Internet of Things Group at Luxoft, shared a viewp... (more)

What to Expect in 2017: Mobile Device Security | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Mobile

We are mobile, our devices are mobile, the networks we connect to are mobile and the applications we access are mobile. Mobility, in all its iterations, is a huge enabler and concern for enterprises and it’ll only get worse as we start wearing our connected clothing to the office.

And now it encompasses more than just the device that causes phantom vibration syndrome, it now involves the dizzying array of sensors, devices and automatons in our households, offices and municipalities. Mobile has infiltrated our society and our bodies along with it. So the security stakes are high. The more we become one with our mobile devices, the more they become targets. It holds our most pr...

Cross-Protocol M2M IoT Communications by Chris Matthieu Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

Born to Run: Travel and Tourism Are Going Mobile, Fast | @ThingsExpo #IoT

A number of years ago, I went on a long trip to Europe. I didn't need to bring much - just some good walking shoes, my backpack, and a map to get around. Still, I had to do my homework before stepping out the door. I needed to know where I was going, what I wanted to see, and I had to polish up on my people skills to figure out what to do in every new place I encountered. A lot of preparation went into that trip, and it was worth it! Traveling is very different today, thanks of course to the smartphone. These little devices haven't just affected what you bring on a trip - they've changed how you approach your trips altogether. You don't need to plan as much because everything you may need is right there, at your fingertips. And you don't just bring one phone, of course. A family traveling this summer will have 4 or 5 devices in the car, and maybe the car itself is co... (more)
