3 Ways To Get Results From Your IoT Strategies  Link

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to free millions of manufacturers from the price wars they’re fighting with commoditized, undifferentiated products every day. Creating and selling smart, connected products is going to revolutionize manufacturing and enable new business models that capitalize on rich, real-time data streams to deliver new sources of revenue.

Nanosatellite companies extend IoT connectivity  Link

Space-based IoT connectivity via nanosatellites helps give things that, until now, were either in locations too remote or weren’t considered feasible, an opportunity to connect.

Troubles Downstream: IoT Meets the Sewer  Link

Sewer spills are a messy, dangerous problem inherent with antiquated municipal infrastructure. Here’s how IoT and analytics are helping.

New Energy: Smart Grid IoT Applications  Link

Leveraging preexisting grid infrastructure (like fault detectors) enables energy operators to build smart grid IoT applications cost-effectively.

WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) – BLOCKCHAIN?  Link

Combining these two concepts allows companies and even consumers to directly monetize the “billion times more information” that is generated by the approximately 30 sensors in your car, engine sensors in airplanes measuring 5,000 elements per second, and billions of other sensors in every part of our daily lives measuring things like weather effects, pollutants, location, fuel, temperature, humidity, moisture, sound, vibration, wind resistance, pressure, weight, electricity, and more than 300 other types of elements.

IoT adoption gets a C+ from Cisco expert — how can CIOs improve?  Link

Organizations don’t have a great track record for successful internet of things projects, according to Cisco. A study conducted by the company last year found that only 26% of companies have had an IoT initiativethey considered a complete success, while a third of all completed projects failed. Perhaps even more discouraging, the study showed that 60% of IoT initiatives stalled at the proof-of-concept stage.

IoT and Smart Agriculture Are Building Our Future Cities Today  Link

The 9.6 billion people expected to live on the planet by 2050, and with 70 percent of them in urban areas, IoT is pushing smart agriculture in smart cities.


PODCASTS

 

Momenta Edge Podcast: Explore Uncaptured IoT Value in the Basics – A Conversation with Rob Tiffany  Link

The conversation with Rob covered his origins in the 1990s building connected systems for vending machines using technologies considered primitive by today’s standards. We follow the progression of the industry through the evolution of powerful enabling technologies while fundamental principles forged during Rob’s early experience inform the success of his work at larger companies including Microsoft and Hitachi. A key message to the industry is the need to focus on the basics like connecting machines for visibility and operational efficiencies – the more advanced technologies like AI and Blockchain are interesting, but there’s important value that’s being overlooked today – and real business needs to be met.

#IoT Podcast 8: What to Look for in an IoT Platform  Link

With literally hundreds of IoT platforms on the market, how do you know which ones to add to your short list? As a rule of thumb, an IoT platform should connect to Things, manage their identity + security, collect data, store, manage, analyze and visualize that data, integrate with enterprise systems and take action on insights. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany walks you through these minimum requirements to help you make an informed choice.

#IoT Podcast 7: Can the Web Save the Internet of Things?  Link

Despite the great promise of IoT to improve business and society, many think it’s being held back due to complexity and the associated lack of required skills to make it a success. Is it possible that the antidote to this complexity and skill shortage problem lies in the existing open standards and technologies that comprise the World Wide Web? In this podcast, Rob Tiffany makes the case for using existing W3C standards to power the Internet of Things.

#IoT Podcast 6: I’m Here to Eliminate your Workforce  Link

For more than a century, advances in technology, machinery and automation have oftentimes replaced humans as a means to accomplish tasks. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany tackles the unsavory topic of workforce reduction as certain tasks have evolved from manual to mobile to IoT.

#IoT Podcast 5: Breaking Down Blockers to IoT Adoption  Link

Despite the promise of process optimizations, innovative new business models and cost savings, the multi-trillion dollar Internet of Things megatrend faces a variety of headwinds that are slowing adoption and commercial rollouts. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany discusses ways to approach and overcome adoption blockers like security, complexity, the skillset shortage and the quest for value.

#IoT Podcast 4: Building the Internet of Humans and Machines  Link

More and more, humans and machines are working together side by side. Therefore, it’s important for Internet of Things platforms and associated technologies to treat them the same. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany illustrates use cases where humans perform work on behalf of machines and vice versa.

#IoT Podcast 3: Lumada’s Visionary IIoT Journey to the Gartner Magic Quadrant  Link

Hitachi Lumada landed in the Visionary quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report for Industrial Internet of Things Platforms. It took less than two years for this revolutionary IIoT technology to go from concept to Visionary. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany gives you a “behind the scenes” look at the Lumada journey from concept to shipping product.

#IoT Podcast 2: Why IoT?  Link

It’s always important to ask “Why” in everything you do whether it’s for business or your personal life. The Internet of Things is no different. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany explains why embarking on the IoT journey is tremendously valuable for business and society.
