Internet of Things
Imagine the power of connected devices across your organisation, stakeholders and customers!
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices (things) that possess the ability to sense, capture and communicate changes experienced by them or in their surroundings. These devices could be inanimate objects like a piece of machinery or be embedded in living things like a farm animal. The sheer infiniteness of the IoT’s impact can be imagined by the multitude of things that can be connected. Every ‘thing’ that can be connected to a network is an asset.
For organisations – businesses and governments and governments alike – this connection of assets enables the capture of data, which provides a treasure trove of information about the asset itself – and which can be used to modify how the organisation behaves, interacts or reacts.
Today, the IoT is driving business model changes by impacting customer value and monetisation.
– Real time data capture
– Convergence of data captured from numerous devices
– Predictive ability to pre-emp customer needs
– Monetisation changes using new and recurring revenue streams
– Intellectual property as the driver of monetisation
– Creation of partnerships and an ecosystem of technology providers, integrators, data analysts – of all sizes
And the IoT’s impact is being seen across industries and governments:
– Connected factory: IoT enabled machinery transmit operational information to equipment manufacturers and field engineers
– Plant safety: Monitoring of worker safety by identifying injuries, falls and other events
– Remote patient monitoring using wearables and biosensors – increases access to remote location and prevents emergency room (ER) visits
– Drug management using sensor-enables pills and body patched to monitor prescription adherence
– Smart helmets to monitor worker health and enable emergency response in case of an adverse event
– Corrective and preventive maintenance of construction machinery to avoid downtime
– Wearable technology using biometrics to prevent identity theft and misuse
– Presence detection sensors to enable real-time traffic analysis, control traffic lights and prevent congestion
– Monitoring health and location of livestock using embedded sensors
– Agricultural drone technology to geo-tag weeds for accurate spraying of chemicals
The complete IoT value chain includes analysis and action taken on the data that is sensed, collected, transmitted and stored. The IoT also poses security risks to the devices – as well as platforms and systems to which these devices connected
