IoTization By @TonyShan | @ThingsExpo #IoT #API #BigData #InternetOfThings

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020, according to an IDC's study

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020, according to an IDC's study. Are we ready for this massive demand? How can we deal with the challenges?

Some firms choose to take no action by claiming they are too busy with what they are doing. Some organizations blindly jump into it with no thinking or planning. Some companies opt to take a bold stance to bet on something immature. Needless to say, all these attempts are highly risky and naive. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

An IoTization method is formed to guide the systematic adoption and enablement of IoT implementations, composed of the following components: Prototype, Extend, Assess, Strategize, Formulate, Accelerate, Initiate, and Revamp (PEAS FAIR). Each component is described below:

  • Assess
    • Review the current state
    • Analyze barriers and pain points
  • Formulate
    • Define the future state
    • Identify gaps and road blockers
  • Strategize
    • Evaluate options and viability
    • Construct a phased plan
  • Initiate
    • Find low hanging fruits to deliver quick wins
    • Explore new trending areas of potentials and bigger impacts
  • Extend
    • Leverage existing technology elements
    • Retool the present IT resources
  • Revamp
    • Rearchitect the current portfolio with IT and OT
    • Revise processes to apply IoT in solutions
  • Prototype
    • Test the technology of interest on a small scale in POC
    • Carry out pilot experiments on selected candidates
  • Accelerate
    • Jump-start the end-to-end SDLC
    • Establish CoE and build competency

The IoTization method helps organizations adopt IoT and IoTize in a holistic manner. The focus must be business impacts and competitive advantages. We ought to incorporate cross-disciplinary processes to be agile and forward-thinking. The emphasis is put on the pragmatic increments in an iterative way. Engineering practices need to be leveraged. Ultimately, it is not the devices in the IoT world, but the winning strategy and right methodology that help businesses transform their operations. Start small and get kicked off quickly, but never begin your journey without a solid plan.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
