The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as a powerful culmination of technology requiring strategic alliances. It involves applying internet-connected chips, wireless communication, and computing power to everyday items such as thermostats and light bulbs. Now just about every manufactured product, including large industrial machines and tiny medical devices, can be part of IoT. Continue reading
The Internet of Things (IoT) is not the same as the Internet. IoT is not just a variation of the Internet. The Internet is the connection backbone of IoT.
If a lone individual posts a blog, like this article, or webpage on the Internet, they can exist happily whether or not anyone else visits the page. Continue reading
Relationship building and networking is gold to any startup. The more businesses and consumers your organization knows, the more opportunities inevitably come your way. Alliances and strategic partnerships within the IoT marketplace can be highly effective ways to build better products and a stronger business. Continue reading
Creating alliances between companies involved in the IoT, (Internet of Things), can be tricky at times, but a requirement for entry into this marketplace.
The cold hard truth is that the IoT will not be able to survive if companies don’t create alliances between each other. There is not a single company that can provide all pieces of an IoT solution. It is very important that those involved in the IoT create partnerships.
Major strategic alliances are forming to cope with a flood of data. With the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT), the proliferation of computers and sensors creates more and more data daily. An event flyer advertising for the New Jersey Big Data Alliance Symposium puts it this way: Continue reading
The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a term that describes the ever-growing world of connectivity between the internet and everyday objects. IoT generally refers to any object embedded with software, electronics, or sensors that have network connectivity. This marketplace is exploding. With this explosion arise opportunities and concerns.
For businesses, IoT offers a new horizon of technological support that facilitates opportunities to grow and creates challenges to overcome. Continue reading
Consider this phrase: Alliance Management. On the surface, it sounds like a good idea, right? You want to carefully maintain your alliances. On the other hand, how exactly does one go about this? By the very nature of the word, you do not control – or entirely manage – those with whom you are allied. They work for another company with different management, different goals and different products.
How can you make this work, then? Continue reading
If you know about the Internet of Things, than you know the next big thing. And it is already happening! The evolution of computing moved forward by combining computing and connectivity to change our world.
The basic concept is that makers of “things” will make them so that they can wirelessly connect to other “things” to create better solutions for people. Want an example? Continue reading
According to VentureBeat.com, a group of the largest heavy hitters in the IT world are forming what has been called the AllSeen Alliance with over 180 worldwide member companies. This alliance will take on the task of creating and maintaining unified standards for device-to-device communication. The Allseen Alliance announced its existence in 2013. It joins a number of forming alliances that are tasking themselves with the development of communication protocol standards to make the IoT operate smoothly. Continue reading
What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? Is it viable? Should my company be part of it and if so, how do we go about it? All good questions.
The IoT, loosely defined, is the ability of objects to share data with other objects wirelessly to enable that data to be used to control or manipulate devices intelligently. IoT is the next generation of connected devices. We have moved from having computers in dedicated rooms, to mobile devices to connected devices. Devices consist, as a minimum, of a controller chip and software. Chips are getting smaller. Alliances are a must! Continue reading
