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.

Hardware
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
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 hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.

Improve the Efficiency and Safety of Liposuction with Data Analysis
Improve the Efficiency and Safety of Liposuction with Data Analysis
Liposuction is a surgery that removes fat from the human body with cannula, a tube that can be inserted into the body. Extracting fat is a very complex surgery procedure. The cannula should precisely reach to the fatty tissue between skin and muscles. When the cannula is injected into deeper issue, it may damage muscle issue. If the cannula isn’t inserted enough, the fat maybe removed unevenly or causes skin necrosis. The fine senses of surgeon is certainly important.Injecting cannula and extracting fat occur 12,000 to 20,000 times per one surgery. It means that moving cannula in time-uniformly is critical. However, every patients has different types of fatty tissue and areas operated on. Due to this complexity of the procedure, skillful surgeon having plenty of experiences were favoured.

European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is an independent, not-for-profit, standardization organization in the telecommunications industry (equipment makers and network operators) in Europe. ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies.We have a special role in Europe. This includes supporting European regulations and legislation through the creation of Harmonised European Standards. Only standards developed by the three ESOs (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI) are recognized as European Standards (ENs).We produce different types of standards to meet the different needs of business and society. These needs include:- facilitating trade- enabling economies and efficiencies- achieving interoperability- enhancing consumer protection and confidenceThe progress of innovation requires a balance between collaboration and competition. Standards provide a foundation to achieve this balance and help enable new technologies. We therefore maintain close links with the R&D community and academia and we support the development of new technologies through a variety of mechanisms.
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
Global Certification Forum (GFC)
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) is the organisational backbone to GCF Certification. Founded in 1999, the membership driven Forum brings together technical experts from the world's leading Manufacturers, Operators and the Test Industry. Together members define the certification requirements that really work for the industry - because they have been developed by the industry.Any device incorporating cellular mobile connectivity can be certified:- Featurephones and Smartphones- Tablets- USB Modems- Portable WiFi Hotspots- Embedded Modules- Laptops- Connected Consumer and M2M/IoT devicesThe GCF scheme evolves in sync with developments in mobile technologies and the changing needs of the industry. It is the only device certification scheme that cover all these technologies:- LTE (3GPP)- 3G UMTS (3GPP)- GSM (3GPP)- CDMA2000 (3GPP2)GCF members include leading mobile network operators representing all the key markets worldwide, over 70 device manufacturers and other stakeholders such as test system suppliers and test laboratories.GCF's current priorities are to reduce industry costs and improve end-user experience by:- Promoting adoption of GCF certification by the mobile industry in markets where it is not presently used- Promoting GCF Certification for any product that incorporates mobile connectivity- Increasing the use of GCF Certification in its current core markets in Asia Pacific, China, Europe and North America,
