All the data in the world is of little value if we don’t know what questions we are trying to answer or what opportunities we are trying to seize. The magnificence of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not in its sheer volume of data and connections but in the timely access to the right data to accomplish goals more reliably, effectively and efficiently. Software AG’s Digital Business Platform is an integrated set of technologies and tools to manage the Digital Transformation and to implement new business designs. Digital Business Platform can handle any process or data that will be needed in the future digitalization, in order to help customers face the challenges.
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.
With over 12 billion connected devices in the world, there are now smarter "things" than people, collecting and connecting all that valuable data designed to facilitate the way we work. With its technology-agnostic approach and industry expertise, Cognizant is providing today's leading companies a comprehensive Internet of Things (IoT) roadmap to transform their operations and business models into the 21st-century enterprise. Cognizant brings together the right blend of industry knowledge, strategy, design thinking and technology capabilities to help companies digitize the physical world. They offer IoT consulting, strategy, implementation and operational support to help untangle the complexity of IoT and align a solution to address the concerns. Their managed innovation process simplifies the complexity of IoT to take ideas from the drawing board to prototype, and then scale the best ones with their proven global delivery model.
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.
NetApp is focused on how data plays a role in the Internet of Things (IoT). The collection points (sensors), data protection (edge to core), and data management (data center) are all critical value adds of IoT-savvy data storage systems today. The application of the IoT to everyday life and business causes an overwhelming amount of complexity for data management. The ‘real time’ needs of it are important, which makes NetApp well positioned in this conversation today with decades of experience helping customers manage their data as efficiently and effectively as possible.
