Embedded with chips and sensors, objects have started to ‘think’, ‘feel’ and ‘talk’. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers a myriad of possible applications. Huawei is eager to harness the potential of this new evolution. The Internet of Things involves multiple forms of M2M communications – Machine to Machine, machine to man, man to machine, and machine to mobile. Considered the next big IT wave following computers, the internet and mobile communications, M2M makes the idea of a ‘smart planet’ a reality. Huawei is at the forefront of efforts to drive forward this new trend and create the right conditions to unleash its potential. The first European projects in this field are already underway.
Globally, countries, cities, industries, and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data, and things. When people, processes, data, and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners, and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real-time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco is delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized application-centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.
Advantech has always been an innovator in the development and manufacture of high-quality, high-performance computing platforms. They cooperate closely with our partners to help provide complete solutions for a wide array of applications across a diverse range of industries. To realize our corporate vision of Enabling an Intelligent Planet, Advantech will continue collaborating and Partnering for Smart City & IoT Solutions.
Nine billion (IoT) devices today, and the number is growing. Organizations must consider how to manage the complexities of connecting to a seemingly unlimited number of devices and how to effectively integrate IoT data with data from other sources, such as internal data stores. Business value comes to those who improve their data capabilities—integration, automation, and analysis—not to those who simply connect the most devices to the network. Watson IoT is a set of capabilities that learn from, and infuse intelligence into, the physical world. Firms can securely connect, collect and process IoT data quickly and easily with the Watson IoT Platform.
The IoT generated data, and it is extremely varied, noisy, time-sensitive, and often confidential. Complexity grows as billions of devices interact in a moving world. This presents a growing challenge that will test the limits of programmable computing. Cognitive IoT is our opportunity to fully exploit this resource. Cognitive IoT is not explicitly programmed. It learns from experiences with the environment and interactions with people. It brings true to systems and processes so they can understand your goals, then integrate and analyze the relevant data to help you achieve them.
By 2018, 33% of all industry leaders will be disrupted by digitally enabled competitors (Source: IDC) Be a disruptor by developing and deploying an IoT strategy so you can tap into the value of connecting the unconnected. IoT is becoming critical for organizations today to understand where new sources of value could come from in their industry – whether it is from operational efficiencies, better customer experiences, safety or even new revenue models. Dell Technologies can help you become a disruptive force in your industry through IoT. We bring: • The industry’s broadest infrastructure portfolio • A curated technology and services partner program • Proven use case-specific solution blueprints
The Internet of Things (IoT) does not need to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be about billions or trillions of devices. The Internet of Things is here today, and it’s a practical and applicable technology trend that can generate return on investment (ROI) and drive efficiencies and insights for organizations that know how to use it. The advancements in connectivity, processing power, form factors, operating systems, and applications, among other technology breakthroughs, are key elements to unlocking value from IoT. With the Microsoft Azure Internet of Things Suite, companies can monitor assets to improve efficiencies, drive operational performance to enable innovation, and use advance data analytics to transform the business with new business models and revenue streams. Small changes can have a big impact to companies' bottom line. When a company take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud Platform, they can use the Azure IoT Suit to help them move faster, do more, save money, and capture the benefits of the Internet of Things for their business.
