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.
Flextronics, an innovative supply chain solutions company, announced a new 'era of intelligence' triggered by an increasing level of smart, connected activity. This new era will be as much about the creation and management of a growing intelligent network of sophisticated software and services as it is about intelligent products, even as it requires a thorough re-thinking and re-making of the objects, goods and products that surround us. At Flex, they look beyond the Internet of Things (IoT) to a broader understanding of the Age of Intelligence. By exploring the insights and new ideas of this connected world, Flex hope to inspire dialogue that leads to bigger and better breakthroughs. With their new quarterly digital publication, INTELLIGENCE, Flex is providing a venue for thought leadership and new insights into the connected age.
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.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will transform companies and countries, opening up a new era of economic growth and competitiveness. Accenture sees a future where the intersection of people, data and intelligent machines will have far-reaching impacts on the productivity, efficiency and operations of industries around the world. In the future, successful companies will use the Industrial Internet of Things to capture new growth through three approaches: boost revenues by increasing production and creating new hybrid business models, exploit intelligent technologies to fuel innovation and transform their workforce. Accenture helps clients to use IIoT to capture new growth through three approaches: boosting revenues by increasing production and creating new hybrid business models, exploiting intelligent technologies to fuel innovation and transforming their workforce.
