IoT rests on three pillars: connectivity, data and security. If one is missing, the IoT ecosystem is interrupted and value is impossible to extract. In fact, individually each is a showstopper for IoT, writes George Malim, the managing editor of IoT Now.
“In order for an organisation to invest in any technology, a solid business case needs to be constructed that details the costs and benefits associated with deployment.

The concept of a smart grid in the power and utilities sector took shape at around the same time as the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sector began its own transformation journey towards Internet of Things (IoT). The official characteristics of a smart grid were defined in the United States at the end of 2006 while the European Union set up a smart grid task force in 2009 to drive the necessary [...]
IoT for Industrial Manufacturing, sometimes called the Industrial IoT (IIoT), offers manufacturers the opportunity to radically redefine their operations and even their entire businesses. The capabilities of IoT enable manufacturers to gain greater visibility and insights into their operations through the efficient utilisation of data and the tighter integration of disparate systems.
