This Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA™) research summary, sponsored by Riverbed®, highlights some of the key findings of EMA’s landmark report, “Network Management Megatrends 2016: Managing Networks in the Era of the Internet of Things, Hybrid Cloud, and Advanced Network Analytics.” It examines several major areas of change and evolution affecting network management. These “megatrends” include hybrid cloud networking, the Internet of Things (IoT), advanced network analytics, network management outsourcing, and network management tool consolidation.
Despite the business-transforming upsides of data from the Internet of things (IoT), there’s a downside: security. Porous networks and lax users offer tantalizing access for hackers. Although most security spending is at the enterprise level, a shift is needed to secure IoT applications and provide improved governance and accountability. Electronics companies must create secure environments that safely collect, consume, share and store data on their networks. But they also must go beyond devices and consumers to close holes to factory, ecosystem and partner networks.
The Internet of Things enables retailers to do three basics better
1) Sensing who customers are and what they’re doing,
2) Understanding customer behavior and preferences, and
3)Acting on that insight to create a more engaging customer
- There are high-potential IoT applications in supply chain, in
“smart store” operations, and especially in providing an engaging
experience to the “connected customer.” IoT data can anticipate
where the customer is headed and how to meet her there.
- Much of the IoT ground, in both data management and analytics,
may be unfamiliar. Retailers and their IT organizations have to be
realistic about the technological challenges, their own capabilities,
and where they need assistance.
- To differentiate through IoT, focus on the analytics. Devices and
their data — and even their platforms — are commodities.
Advantage goes to the retailer who does the most with the data to
engage the connected customer.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
Technology transitions—such as cloud, mobility, big data, and the Internet of Things—bring together people, processes, data, and things to make resources and connections more valuable to your business.

IoT describes a system where items in the physical world, and sensors within or attached to these items, are connected to the Internet via wireless and wired Internet connections. These sensors can use various types of local area connections such as RFID, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee. Sensors can also have wide area connectivity such as GSM, GPRS, 3G, and LTE.
The Internet of Things may be a hot topic in the industry but it’s not a new concept. In the early 2000’s, Kevin Ashton was laying the groundwork for what would become the Internet of Things (IoT) at MIT’s AutoID lab. Ashton was one of the pioneers who conceived this notion as he searched for ways that Proctor & Gamble could improve its business by linking RFID information to the Internet. The concept was simple but powerful. If all objects in daily life were equipped with identifiers and wireless connectivity, these objects could be communicate with each other and be managed by computers.
With 50 to 100 billion things expected to be connected to the Internet by 2020, we are now experiencing a major paradigm shift that is revolutionizing business. More and more of the objects we use every day—including those in our factories, utilities, and railroads—are used to capture and distribute information that is helping us know more and do more. The TechWiseTV team and guest experts take an in-depth look at how industries like these are utilizing the data they are gathering from the factory floor all the way out to the field. This exploration into how the Internet of Things actually works in the real world and what your organization must do to take full advantage of it is a great opportunity to understand the practical challenges and specific technology involved in bringing all this potential to life.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is flooding today’s industrial sector with data. Information is streaming in from many sources — equipment on production lines, sensors at customer facilities, sales data, and much more. Harvesting insights means filtering out the noise to arrive at actionable intelligence.
This report shows how to craft a strategy to gain a competitive edge. It explains how to evaluate IIoT solutions, including what to look for in end-to-end analytics solutions. Finally, it shows how SAS has combined its analytics expertise with Intel’s leadership in IIoT information architecture to create solutions that turn raw data into valuable insights.
The Connected Customer is an individual who is intimately connected
to the data, outcomes, decisions, and staff associated with any
relationship to an organization. This intensely personal connection is
not just a matter of the most recent transaction, but represents a
combination of connected data, connected analytics, and collaborative
decisions associated with improving the customer’s relationship with
the organization over time.
In this report, Blue Hill explores the key traits associated with
supporting the Connected Customer through the Internet of Things,
and provides guidance on why the Internet of Things will be essential
across the general business landscape.
