The Internet of Things (IoT) is about dissolving the layers of complexity and the intermediaries that create distance between the point of manufacturing and the point of consumption, between understanding and preventing points of failure in the manufacturing process, in machines or in critical processes, and between what the customer wants and what is delivered. Infosys' inter-disciplinary skills and domain knowledge in engineering and IT enable them to drive efficiency, accelerate concept-to-market, and derive business insights from data in the IoT space. Their solutions span platforms, consulting services, system integration offerings, embedded and hardware solutions, and requirements definition.
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.
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.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises to help maximize the connectivity of real-time operating data, automate predictive analytics and allow people to work collaboratively in the moment – it can bring incredible agility to decision making, improving company's bottom line. With iiOT by Honeywell, they help you better connect people, assets and processes to help digitally transform the business – more reliable assets, more efficient operations, and optimized performance across company's enterprise. All of Honeywell's ready-to-deploy IIoT technologies have cyber security built in, and Honeywell has designed solutions to help drive a step change in project execution by Honeywell experts with both IT and operations know-how.
Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them. IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security. Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
