Amazon Web Services has developed the managed cloud platform AWS IoT to let connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS Endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected.
Atos provides services such as facilities management, e-commerce consulting, systems design, implementation, and integration, and managed services. It also offers data and transaction processing services, website hosting, and outsourced services for such functions as customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning. Year founded: 1988 Revenue: $17.0 billion (2014) NYSE: ATOS
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.
Nine billion Internet of Things (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. 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 Machine Learning 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
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.
AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS Endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, companies' applications can keep track of and communicate with all their devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected. The AWS IoT Device Gateway enables devices to securely and efficiently communicate with AWS IoT. The Device Gateway can exchange messages using a publication/subscription model, which enables one-to-one and one-to-many communications. With this one-to-many communication pattern AWS IoT makes it possible for a connected device to broadcast data to multiple subscribers for a given topic. The Device Gateway supports MQTT and HTTP 1.1 protocols and you can easily implement support for proprietary or legacy protocols. The Device Gateway scales automatically to support over a billion devices without provisioning infrastructure.
The rise of machine-to-machine (M2M) communication will bring an unprecedented need for network infrastructure, and foster the advent of a new generation of devices, pioneered by the Nabaztag, which have connectivity as their raison d’être. As more and more objects from daily life are being embedded with computing capabilities, personal computers as we know them will become a tool of the past. The Internet of Things (IoT) will be disruptive by nature and businesses and organizations have little choice but to adopt it. Now is the time for CEOs, CIOs and decision makers to understand the potential of the IoT and reap the associated benefits in terms of economic growth and individual well-being, thus making IoT an IoT for People. Atos is committed to dedicating more effort to the IoT and take ubiquitous computing to the masses.
