Welcome! The huge story this past week was Amazon offering cloud based services tuned specifically for the IoT. For fun I also included articles from the week prior on Microsoft's Azure service and Salesforce now supporting a number of IoT services. The fact that Amazon, Microsoft and Salesforce are jumping into the IoT is validation that they are seeing a need in the market and providing services to those who need them. I see this as a great time for being involved with the Internet of Things!
To that point, I cover a few stories of personal interest to me on Security and Big Data. These vectors of the IoT are keys to the future and where great innovation and value is being built today.
Finally, we wrap up with articles on business developments, crowd funding and events that I hope you find interesting. As a reminder, please be sure to tweet this issue to your followers. Until next week!
