Hardware
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
Connectivity as a service as provided by telecommunications companies, i.e. data transfer, radio waves.

EP014a: The Rapidly Evolving CAD Industry - An Interview With EPLAN's Carsten Metelmann
Tuesday, Oct 10, 2017

Computer Aided Design (CAD) is at the heart of all manner of engineering processes. A high quality CAD can help companies optimize processes, accelerate product development cycles and reduce time-to-market. This is exactly the goal that EPLAN, a leading provider of software-based engineering solutions set out to achieve. In the first installment of this three-part series, we are pleased to have Carsten Metelmann, Vice President International Sales at EPLAN with us on the show who will be discussing more on how EPLAN and the traditional technique of CAD have been evolving with the advent of global phenomena such as Industry 4.0, globalization and demographic change.

EP014b: Powerful Schematics At Your Fingertips - An Interview With EPLAN's Carsten Metelmann
Thursday, Oct 12, 2017

While the advent of the Industrial IoT has brought with it numerous benefits to businesses such as improved operations and profitability, increasing digitalization is also adding layers of complexity on top of many traditional systems. The drawback of this is that the ease of use of such systems are adversely affected. In the second episode of the series, we continue the conversation with Carsten Metelmann, Vice President of International Sales at EPLAN about how their traditional technology has been forced to evolve with recent developments like demographic change, the cloud and IoT. Specifically, we will look in greater detail at how the functionalities and architecture of their technology such as the recently launched SaaS-based solution Cogineer handle complexity while remaining highly integrative and not compromising on ease of use.
