The Siemens Building Technologies Division and Capgemini are set to put in place a cloud based services platform comprising asset management and analytics technology. The two entities are adding to the development of the web-based Energy & Sustainability Navigator platform that has saved 10.5 million tons of CO2 per year for customers. Both companies are looking to ensure corporate real estate owners see business results and meet energy efficiency goals, while making the best of the lifecycle potential of their customers’ real estate assets.
Recent years have seen a significant evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). It has become increasingly easy to connect devices to the Internet and send sensorial data to the public cloud. However, it’s quite evident that the adoption of IoT platforms and stream analytics within the enterprise is lagging and less prevalent. This could be associated with lack of skills required to deploy a platform and the difficulty to demonstrate value of such platforms through real-life use cases.
GE recently announced the launch of its Digital Wind Farm solution in India. It is a dynamic, connected, and adaptable wind-energy ecosystem that leverages big data and analytics, and pairs it with a reliable turbine that has a digital infrastructure. The goal is to enhance production, reduce cost, and boost availability and productivity over the life of a wind farm.GE also unveiled the latest version of its wind-turbine hardware, the 2.3–116 machine, which comes with enhanced control technology and safety features, including: a new 94-meter tower height and the largest 116-m diameter rotor in the country. According to GE, it provides approximately 30% more gross Annual Energy Production (AEP) over its predecessor, the 1.7-103.
Longsys Technology, the leading solutions provider for the Internet of Things (IoT), just announced the world’s smallest IoT WiFi Silicon-in-package (SiP) module, LTP0201, which is designed for IoT and wearable devices that can connect to other smart devices or directly connect to the Internet for cloud-based data analytics and enhanced services.With an amazing size of just 6mm x 6mm (only 1/10 of the IoT WiFi PCBA modules, or less), this breakthrough technology IoT SiP module integrated MCU, memory, power management and RF parts, to provide a high performance, low cost, and low power consumption solution for connected products.
There are three main areas anyone wanting to get more intimately familiar with the Internet of Things should focus on: devices, cloud and analytics. With such a diversity of skills required, as Darshana Sugathan puts it, there can be no such thing as an “IoT expert.” The challenge is devices, cloud and analytics are three very wide areas, each with its own sets of specialties and ways of doing things. (And different ways of looking at the world.) It requires one to clone himself or herself two or three times to make sure everything is covered.
Like all computing revolutions (thus far), the semiconductor is the backbone of the IoT. It allows all the other computing functions and facilitates the analytics upon which all of the Big Data collections processes rely upon for intelligent value.MegaChips Technology America Corporation, a fabless semiconductor company and a leader in the industry, is focusing on the development of products that incorporate original algorithms and architecture to help customers automate building operations, improve networking and meet storage needs for imaging, audio, home networking, power management, security and communications environments.
A third of all Internet of Things (IoT) developers are primarily focusing on Big Data and analytics projects today.42% of IoT developers are currently writing software that uses sensors.23% of IoT developers are currently working with or incorporating in-memory databases into their development work, and 44% plan to in the next six months.
Rich Internet of Things (IoT) applications distribute application logic between the cloud and remote devices. Some IoT application logic is best suited for remote devices at the edge of the network, such as first order filtering and batching of data, while other IoT application logic is best suited for cloud, such as rich analytics and insights over aggregate data – as well as controlling and updating remote devices.
IBM will acquire Weather.com and other digital assets from The Weather Company for its new Watson IoT Unit and Watson IoT Cloud platform, it announced Wednesday.The purchase covers The Weather Company’s mobile and Web-based products, including WSI, Weather Underground and The Weather Company brand. The TV-based Weather Channel is not included, but it will license weather forecast data and analytics from IBM under a long-term contract, IBM said.
Jasper, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform leader, today announced it is working with IBM to integrate their IoT service platform, Control Center with IBM’s IoT Foundation. This will help IBM’s and Jasper’s clients to create complete IoT solutions, extending IBM’s cloud based real-time information management and analytics with Jasper’s IoT service management capabilities.
