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.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next step in the evolution of wireless networks. Analysts predict the IoT will double in size to nearly 50 billion devices by 2020, comprising a $1.7 trillion market. One of the greatest opportunities still lies ahead in the form of the “smart home.”
As the next evolution of computing, the IoT adds sensing, processing and connectivity to everyday “things” such as thermostats, locks, lights and sensor nodes.In recent years, the IoT has transformed industries and opened new markets. The IoT is poised to do much more as countless devices are getting connected to each other and to the cloud.
Technology is in a constant state of evolution, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is no exception. The top five emerging markets for the IoT – medical, fitness wearables, industrial, automotive, and smart homes – are driven by patented IP, much of which is being applied in IoT inventions. It is vital for both IoT developers and companies that hold extensive patent portfolios to have a clearer understanding of the patent landscape as the IoT becomes pervasive in our lives on a global scale.
Samsung has launched a new hub for smarthome devices, which it hopes will kickstart the evolution of the internet of things (IoT).The company revealed it will be bringing its SmartThings Hub to the United Kingdom and Europe in 2016, giving consumer a central unit to control all of their smart, connected devices from your tablet or smartphone using the companion SmartThings app, which will deliver real-time notifications and even video clips.
MSPs must pay attention to the Internet of Things (IoT), despite its being pegged as a consumer-facing phenomenon, one partner has told Channelnomics.While the IoT is still early in its evolution, it’s getting closer to a reality in which consumers – and therefore the employees of MSP clients – live in a futuristic landscape in which every device they own is internet-connected, George Bardissi, president of Bardissi Enterprises, a regional provider of managed IT services and support, told Channelnomics.
We’ll look back on today’s much-anticipated release of the Apple Watch as a pivotal moment in the internet of things (IoT) revolution. With pre-orders of the product reaching one million in a matter of hours, IoT has hit the mainstream, moving into the public consciousness with a fashionable bang. This will be an acceleration point in the evolution of smart thinking and smart technology.If the product is as much of a success as its manufacturers hope there is a real possibility wearable technology – whether in the form of a watch or a pair of glasses – will become as essential and everyday as their current analogue versions. IoT digital disruption will be the biggest influence on the cultural zeitgeist for the foreseeable future.
The futuristic smart home is exciting to think about, but making it a reality is an expensive commitment. In some cases, you might be replacing thermostats, smoke detectors, light bulbs and other devices that work perfectly fine, just to hook up newer, connected devices.
And not to mention, some smart-home solutions can still seem sort of dumb at this point in their evolution.
In the process of evolution of technology, gadgets and especially smart gadgets are becoming a way of enriching our lives and homes, to either make them easier or to make them feel more safe. The last few years have seen heavy development of some of the most advanced smart gadgets in the market.
The two areas that we currently see rapidly advancing are comfort and security, especially popular are becoming smart gadgets that allow us to digitize our whole homes, making them easily accessible from a control panel either at home, or from a digital device such as your phone.
We have come a long way from those days when getting to the office was nothing else than seating on a desk, placing paper on the back of a typewriter and type all the way with no space for error.
Today, we live in a world where technology gives a new step forward on a daily basis (or at least from Monday to Friday). IoT is just the next natural path for evolution.
As ever more Things get connected businesses must now adapt to this new reality.
Companies will have to be swift in the next couple of years. They will have to rethink their strategies in order to cope with the new challenges.
