Add the October 20th #IoTuesday Twitter Chat to your Outlook calendar now. In our next #IoTuesday twitter chat we continue our journey along the IoT highway by evaluating  its impact on industries, people and society. Join us on October 20th as we take a closer look at IoT in the smart city transformation. Today's modern day industrial revolution is being shaped by ubiquitous connectivity, machine to machine (M2M) communications, the Internet of Things (IoT), open APIs leading to a surge in new applications and services, partnerships and eventual marketplaces. IoT has the potential to transform industry and society much like advances in steam technology, transportation, mass production and communications ushered in the industrial revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries. Ericsson expects that over 26 billion connected devices will be deployed globally by 2020, rep... (more)

A Must-Attend Event: @ThingsExpo | #IoT #M2M #API #BigData #Microservices

Are We Nearly There Yet? Moving from Connected Things to Connected Marketplaces Monday, June 15, 2015 - 14:16 This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015.

Below are a few of the major developments we noticed and look forward to hearing more as 2015 progresses. C... (more)

Take Page from Google Alphabet By @EsmeSwartz | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #RTC #InternetOfThings

Take Page from Google Alphabet: Innovation is Necessity Not Luxury for Cloud & Internet of Things In the last blog leading up to our #IoTuesday chat we touched upon some examples of value creation made possible by cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their role in reshaping both the Consumer Internet and the Industrial Internet. But, too often the uncertain return on investment (RoI) results in a short term focus on operational cost savings and not on how IoT can be used to transform companies and industries through innovative new business models. And in the age of the Int... (more)

Topics ranged from the evolution of the Industrial Internet to consumer IoT applications to the role of APIs and API management. And underlying all of this, how we move from today's connected devices and vertical siloes to a horizontal IoT marketplace with interconnectivity a... (more)
