News about The IoT

Onion, société conceptrice du Omega, vient de boucler une campagne de crowdfunding qui va lui permettre de lancer la version 2 de son pico-ordinateur. Objectif : démocratiser l’usage de ces kits de développement prisés par les applications IoT.

Selon Morgan Stanley, 2017 consacrera le vrai démarrage des objets connectés sur le marché de masse.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an entirely new platform for developers and engineers, but one thing should remain consistent as we move into this new world, the programming languages. From our limited time checking out IoT projects, developers seem to be utilizing the same languages for their projects, while also integrating some specific changes for IoT.

Gartner’s estimate of 21 billion connected things in use by 2020 has developers switching their focus to become a part of the growing internet of things. 42% of IoT developers are currently building apps that uses sensors, and one-third of today’s IoT developers are building applications that require real-time data analysis and processing 50% or more of the time, according to Forbes. An Evans Data survey in July 2015 found that 17% of developers contacted were already working on applications for connected devices, while an additional 23% expected to begin working on them in the next six months.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is preparing to transform the way we live, from work to entertainment to transportation. And as the IoT creeps toward mass adoption, a handful of trends have started to emerge with the space. AppCarouselrecently attended IoT World in Santa Clara, California and the Internet of Things Summit in London.

How are smart cities governed with so many points of data collection and analysis?

Consumer products like the FitBit, smart clothing and smarter homes may get more market exposure, but the most compelling internet of things (IoT) story is unfolding behind the scenes at the industrial level. Industry analyst research from Gartner and IDC estimates that 80 percent of digital data is dark, meaning not easily accessible or used. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)is shining new light on the business possibilities of using that data.

Retailers must embrace the best the digital world has to offer or risk falling behind their tech-savvy rivals

When streetlights first lit up New York skies in 1880, Edison was initially revered as a hero. Electric lights were unlike anything his peers had seen before, accustomed as they were to gas lamps and candles, and they cheered to see the new technology go live. However, that awe quickly faded, becoming a major PR problem: Victorians may have at first viewed the invention as a modernist feat, but they mistrusted electric lights and believed they were unsafe for their homes—especially after hearing about horses that were electrocuted in the streets while traveling over lanes where transmission cables were laid. The Wizard of Menlo Park eventually gained some ground with the public after launching a massive advertising campaign—one that included dancers with lightbulbs taped to their heads, and power lines running the length of their arms—to demonstrate to audiences that bulbs were safe enough for any home. And the rest is history.  

Cognitive computing means giving computers the ability to work out complex problems for themselves. Just like humans, cognitive computers benefit greatly from experience, learning better ways to solve problems with each encounter. When a traditional system of rules finds a task impossible, cognitive computing sees only an opportunity to expand its knowledge.

Although big data is ever-present in our lives, it can be difficult to understand how much it really has changed our day-to-day living. Let’s take a closer look at how big data has weaved its way into the lives of many consumers today, via the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things can be thought of as the interconnectivity of everyday objects that use network connectivity to send and receive data. Whether we consciously realize it or not, we are surrounded by objects like these that depend on big data to make our lives better.

Le buzz ne fait pas le business. Si l’IoT (Internet of Things) est bien positionné dans le Hype Cycle de Gartner, les entreprises peinent à trouver les bons cas d’usage pour déclencher les investissements. Du coup, l’IoT n’apparait pas dans les plans d’investissements des entreprises -ou à de rares exceptions. C’est ce que révèle une étude de Gartner menée auprès de 465 professionnels IT et métier. Près de quatre entreprises sur dix (38%) n’ont tout simplement aucun projet lié de près ou de loin à l’IoT. Pis : 9% n’y voient même aucun intérêt !

Initiative soutenue par 26 opérateurs mobiles, équipementiers, fournisseurs de chipset, de modules et d’infrastructures leaders à l’échelle mondiale. La Mobile IoT Initiative, lancée par la GSMA (GSM Alliance) a pour vocation de favoriser l’utilisation des solutions LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) dans le spectre sous licence.  

Pas d’IoT (Internet of Things) sans une bonne connectivité ! Tel est l’avis de Gert Jonk, Country Director Benelux, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise. A l’entendre, sans une infrastructure de réseau appropriée, qui transmet les données et les informations de manière efficace aux bons endroits, les capteurs et autres dispositifs intelligents seraient rapidement inutiles ! Pour lui, il y a quatre exigences clés pour le développement d’un réseau intelligent…

Les entreprises qui ont investi massivement dans l’IoT (Internet of Things) sont celles qui retirent le plus de bénéfices de leurs investissements.

l'IoT (Internet of Things) permettra aux marques de créer et d’enrichir les relations avec leurs clients.

L’Enterprise Mobility 3.0 est celle qui relie les objets entre eux, après l’entreprise 2.0 qui a relié les humains. Désormais, il s’agit de relier les objets entre eux -et par la même les humains- et donc fixer de nouvelles perspectives: mobilité, gestion de données, nouvelle relation entre collaborateurs, renforcer l’interaction avec les clients… Pour Mobistar, l’Enterprise Mobility 3.0 change la donne et ouvre la porte à une infinité de possibilités.
