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 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.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced Data Science are rewriting the rules of competition. The advantage goes to organizations that can convert petabytes of freshly arrived and historical data to predictions – more quickly and more accurately than their competitors. Payoffs include better product and service design, promotion, and pricing; optimized supply chains that avoid delays and increase output; reduced churn; higher average revenue per customer; and Predictive Maintenance that avoids downtime for vehicle fleets and manufacturing systems while lowering service costs. To make sense of and act on the unprecedented volume, velocity, and variety of data in real time, companies are applying the sciences of big data, advanced analytics, Machine Learning, and Cloud Computing. Products themselves are being redesigned to accommodate connectivity and low-cost sensors, creating a market opportunity for adaptive systems, a new generation of smart applications, and a renaissance of business process reengineering. The new IT paradigm will reshape the value chain by transforming product design, marketing, manufacturing, and after-sale services. C3 IoT offers a new generation of smart, real-time applications, overcoming the development challenges that have blocked companies from realizing the potential of the Internet of Things. Proven in more than 20 enterprise-scale production environments, the C3 IoT Platform is PaaS for the design, development, deployment, and operation of next-generation IoT applications and business processes.
