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.
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
IoT impacts every business. Mobile and the Internet of Things will change the types of devices that connect into a company’s systems. These newly connected devices will produce new types of data. The Internet of Things will help a business gain efficiencies, harness intelligence from a wide range of equipment, improve operations and increase customer satisfaction. IoT will also have a profound impact on people’s lives. It will improve public safety, transportation and healthcare with better information and faster communications of this information. While there are many ways that the Internet of Things could impact society and business, there are at least three major benefits of IOT that will impact every business, which include: communication, control and cost savings.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
This series explores the role of modern digital technology in the evolution of manufacturing production, defined here as the value chain of internal and external contributors to the manufacture and delivery of products. Each chapter is designed to help operators visualize how they can build-out production of the future, and how to leverage help from the value chain to make faster progress.
From cars to factories to cities, many governments are already collecting information from citizens and connected devices that send and receive data over the internet of things (IoT). While analysts expect the IoT to soar to tens of billions of devices by 2020, no one knows how many or what new types of intelligent devices will emerge. But we do know that traditional approaches to data management and analytics may not be sufficient for sustaining value in this new, connected world
"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. To create personalized experiences, companies across all industries must pursue a more connected relationship with their customers through technology and processes focused on delivering relevant personalized experiences whenever possible. 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.
"As more products and machines become connected, and analytical capabilities grow, new applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) will emerge. So too will manufacturers change how they make business decisions. This IndustryWeek Special Research Report gauges the current and planned usage of IoT technology and analytics by US manufacturers. It also explores how manufacturers can develop a specific IoT strategy and apply analytics more widely across their organizations to drive revenue, cut costs and innovate.
Quality 4.0 isn't really a story about technology. It's about how that technology improves culture, collaboration, competency and leadership.
The last decade has seen rapid advances in connectivity, mobility, analytics, scalability and data, creating what some call the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. With the help of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturers have digitized operations, transforming efficiency, supply-chain performance and innovation. This revolution has even created entirely new business models.
This e-book gives manufacturers the tools to lead the Quality 4.0 transformation – a transformation that raises traditional manufacturing to the next level. It teaches readers to use advanced technology, analytics and IIoT to strengthen the manufacturing process and bring it forward into a powerful digital age.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
