Using Blockchain to Secure the "Internet of Things"
The world is full of connected devices–and more are coming. In 2017, there were an estimated 8.4 billion internet-enabled thermostats, cameras, streetlights and other electronics. By 2020 that number could exceed 20 billion, and by 2030 there could be 500 billion or more.
How to Start an Internet of Things Company
The rise of internet of things (IoT) technology has many names, including The Next Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0 and, simply, The IoT Apocalypse. Regardless of your stance on the future of IoT, most can agree that IoT will be a disruptor in every sense of the word -- and not just in Silicon Valley and at MIT. The implications of IoT are far-reaching, touching nearly every industry that relies on industrial automation.
Motor Maker Revs Up for IoT
A startup designing a new kind of smart, networked motor provides a view into the state of the Internet of Things. So far, Software Motor Company (SMC) has found that lowering costs through integrated designs may be one key to success in an IoT market that has not yet lived up to its hype.
How The Gig Economy Will Help Deliver The True Value Of IoT
The field service management (FSM) market will be worth $4.45 billion by 2022. Increasing customer expectations, surging demand for enhanced productivity and the rise of service operation costs are considered primary drivers behind this projection.
Where IoT Can Deliver The Most Value In 2018
Capgemini interviewed senior executives from over 300 global organizations who are already implementing IoT initiatives. The research team also analyzed 300 cross-sector, real-life IoT uses cases used for internal operations spanning industrial manufacturing, retail, consumer products, energy & utilities, automotive and telecommunications, to identify which ones have the greatest impact.
