The IoT is predicted to be as (if not more) transformational than the internet itself on the way we live

The Signs Are In The City- The Internet Of Things Is Shaping The Future Of Retail In Key Markets Across The Middle East And Africa

According to a recent IDC study looking at four key markets (Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, and the UAE), spending on IoT solutions among retailers will grow by an average of around 19% annually for the foreseeable future, representing nearly $1.6 billion in spending from 2014 through 2018. While this growth is a bit slower than for IoT across all industries in MEA, it is a bit ahead of global trends, where overall IoT spending is soaring by an average of around 17% per year.

From smart cities to smart regions

A few years ago, many cities around the world planned to implement metropolitan Wi-Fi networks but it proved to be much more difficult than originally envisioned, due to technical and commercial issues. One of the main stumbling blocks was getting the municipal authorities to buy in to what was at best a thin business case. Times have changed however and attitudes have moved on with technology, and the onset to smart cities is well under way.

Top 5 reasons why enterprises must have an IoT strategy

As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes ubiquitous, it also becomes something enterprises must embrace if they're hoping to stay leaders in their industry. The IoT promise is a big one, but it's also one with many challenges that require a strong strategy. The IoT has already arrived and ensuring a strong game plan around how you can harness the opportunities of an uber-connected world is key to not falling behind.

iOT in other words may be bigger than the internet

The internet has changed into a common place for global markets to compete and content generation of endless possibilities and market controlling details. So the internet may just represent an endless supply of fresh data with a limitless supply of analytical advantages controlled by no one but available to everyone simply called iOT for short.

The Internet of Things: 11 Experts on Business Opportunities

The term ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) was coined by British entrepreneur Kevin Ashton in 1999. IoT is about connecting electronic devices over the Internet, letting them talk to us and other connected devices through user controlled applications, now made popular by Internet of Things.

Gartner Says the Internet of Things Is Creating New Software Vendors

The Internet of Things (IoT) is turning many manufacturers of "things" into first-time software vendors that need licensing and entitlement management (LEM) solutions, according to Gartner, Inc. By shifting product value from device hardware to the software running on the device and applying an appropriate licensing strategy, manufacturing product strategists can maximize revenue potential.

What the internet of things means for businesses

It is because technology is outpacing us and we have to keep up. The biggest mistake a business can make right now is not to do anything at all. IoT is a natural evolution of smart technology, cloud, telecoms etc – all the things that we were already using, just all rolled into one.

IoT foundation critical to enable connected products, assets and supply chains

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) is bringing the necessary capabilities for connected products, assets, and supply chains. Through IoT, manufacturers can leverage a combination of software, sensors, and IP-enabled connectivity to change products and processes. A new IDC PlanScape, The IoT Foundation for Connected Products, Assets and Supply Chains in Manufacturing, offers practical guidance to help IT and business leaders in manufacturing justify investment in IoT and an IoT foundation for incremental improvements and transformation.

A Light Bulb Goes On, Over the Mall

Public lighting that dials into the Internet of Things could use billions of fixtures to collect data about things as diverse as traffic congestion and a shopper in the cereal aisle.

The Internet of Things and the Enterprise Opportunity

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly become one of the most familiar and perhaps, most hyped expressions across business and technology. That hype, however, is entirely justified and is backed up by the numbers.

The world will see 25 billion Internet-connected things by 2020, and Gartner estimates that the IoT will produce close to $2 trillion of economic benefit globally. These things are not general purpose devices such as smartphones and PCs, but dedicated objects, such as vending machines, jet engines, connected soap dispensers and a myriad of other examples.

How IoT primes a new smart product economy

Home automation start-ups, established consumer electronics giants and large venture capital-funded technology companies are gearing up for competition as connected cars, homes and even smart cities emerge. However, examining the abstract world of IoT from the world of products reveals the extent to which a billion inter-connected devices and products are changing businesses as we know it.

Latest research from the Cognizant’s Centre for the Future of Work, a survey of over 200 global product design and innovation executives carried out in collaboration with the Economist Intelligence Unit highlights practical steps that business leaders can take to benefit from the fast-accelerating trend of smart products and the prizes on offer from the “Smart Product Economy”.

Google Inc Takes Initiative To Launch Internet Of Things Network

Google wants to get moving with its network including Internet of Things. The firm plans to provide a grant of $500,000 to assist Carnegie Mellon University to research and develop multiple physical products for the network. It also plans to offer researchers and students at the university access to Google’s technology for Internet of Things.

The project's main target is to allow the campus to easily gather data and make efficient use of it. This is only possible if vast wireless sensors are utilized in order to gather data from various portions within and outside the campus. The university officials aim to utilize the technologies elsewhere, once they have been successful themselves.
