Working together to complete a puzzle

The tech world can be a hard one to keep up with. To remedy this, we have started a news roundup blog series. In this installment, we explore the world of IoT. While IoT has opened new doors for sensors, development platforms, and other hardware, the backbone of the Internet of Things is built on software. From mobile development and web portals, to big data analysis and machine learning, the innovation and reach of IoT is driven through software.


 Generating Data Isn’t the Issue — Managing Data Is By Bridget Botelho | Published on TechTarget

“Companies are using big data systems, deep learning and machine learning techniques to drive software advances. To go even further, their data management systems must also evolve. On a recent commute to TechTarget’s Newton, Mass., office, I passed by an Apple Maps vehicle — a white SUV topped with cameras and spinning light detection and ranging equipment that collects vast amounts of data about streets all over the world.”


 How the IoT is Fueling Industrial Digitalization By Autumn Cafiero Giusti | Published on Chief Executive

“The pervasiveness of technology is changing the way industrial companies conduct commerce, and the Internet of Things is at the heart of that transformation. That’s one of the key takeaways from a report issued this week by enterprise software developer IFS. IFS surveyed more than 200 manufacturing and contracting executives with decision-making power over IoT purchases to find out how IoT affects the readiness for digitalization in North American industrial companies.”


 How IPv6 deployment affects the security of IoT devices By Fernando Gont | Published on IoT Agenda

“IPv6, the successor to the IPv4 protocol, will provide vast address space to enable the present and future growth of the internet. IPv6 is usually seen as a key enabler technology for the internet of things, since it can easily accommodate the increasing number of smart sensors connecting to the internet. However, the possible security interactions between IPv6 and IoT devices are generally overlooked, as well as the possible inadvertent shift in the paradigm associated with the security of IoT devices.”


 The IoT and Mobile Application Development By Ritesh Mehta | Published on IT Pro Portal

“Today, we are in the world wherein mobile apps have dominated the market. A mobile app development software and mobile apps functions more like a bridge for forward-thinking organisations trying to create smarter devices that could boost each and every aspect of people’s lives. It could be said that mobile apps have created the foundation for the rise of the Internet of Things.”


 3 ways machine learning is revolutionizing IoT By Majid Ahmed| Published on NetworkWorld

“Few things have propelled the IoT’s dizzying growth in recent years as much as machine learning and the innovators who are pushing it. Independent, intelligent machines that can comb through data to make their own decisions are, to some, the only reason such phenomenon as the IoT can exist in the first place. So what are the top three ways in which machine learning has and will shape the IoT?”
