The four Ws of IoT: Who, What, Where, and Why

Tell me a company that does not want to IoT a device and I will give you a dollar -- Ok. Let's not get ahead of ourselves there. I know they exists but I am here to go over the concept of IoT and why it might matter to you (if it does not already). This blog post is go over the who, what, where, and why of this concept known to us as Internet of Things. We will discuss how in the next series of blogs.

Single Sign-On in the Wild

A rash of rogue food orders with the company Deliveroo allowed hungry hackers to go on a booze and food binge in 2016—they logged in to customers’ accounts, changed delivery addresses, and ordered whatever they pleased.

If you’re not leveraging AI yet, you are already behind

If you are not leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), then you must read this. Eventually most, if not all, organizations will adopt some form of advanced analytics powered by big data and statistical models. The question is whether you will wait until it’s almost too late and potentially not survive changes in market sentiment, or whether you will adopt it early and command market sentiment. Analysts predict that consumers will soon prioritize solutions which offer hyper-personalization. This means, not only do you need to know more about your customers, but you need to deliver solutions through a set of experiences which predict what they need. Granted, this relates to consumer facing solutions, but consumers will also prefer solutions which use AI as a form of sustaining innovation to reduce cost or increase capabilities.

The Internet of Things is just getting started

The Internet of Things (IoT) is just getting started. Honestly though, if you think about it, IoT has always been here. In the beginning, we had the internet. Traditionally, the internet’s purpose was to allow devices to serve content from the internet. Now with IoT, we simply alter the paradigm and consider that the device is sending sensor data to the internet. In other words, we have always had the ability to do IoT, but what has changed is the notion around how devices and device data can be used.

Cloud Computing and Cloud Development are entering the second decade

Cloud computing today is much different than it was nine years ago. Not only is the cloud different, but the developers who author code for this environment are different. Nine years ago, if someone came to you and said: “make me a website”, there were only a few ideal ways to do it. Today, they are many ways to do it. In fact, in the cloud alone there are five ways to do the same thing. With Azure the limit of scale of your system will not be Azure, the limit of scale will be you. It will be the choices you made in the design process that affect the scalability of your system.

Why Consumer Experience is Critical to Innovation

The first mistake organizations make is assuming that Digital Transformation, innovation, and disruption are the same thing. More importantly, organizations forget to include consumer experience when planning innovation. Because of this confusion, organizations are finding that their progress with Digital Transformation or DX initiatives has been too slow. A recent IDC report has predicted that by the end of this year, nearly half of organizations will have scaled their DX team. The reason for this scale is that innovation progress has been too slow relative to competitive response.
