Futuristic startup super charges your possessions into digital life

Evrythng takes us a step closer towards the Internet of Things.

 

Rebecca Grant from venturebeat interviews Evrythng founder Niall Murphy.  He is quoted:

 

“The concept of the Internet of Things has been around of a long time, but only now are the conditions interesting for it to become real. There was no infrastructure on the net for things to have a digital identity. Now with smart phones and other innovations in technology, we can give every single thing a web presence.”


“Our vision is that everything is connected to make the world smarter and more efficient,” Murphy said. “Maybe we are staring at the sky, but why not? I love the idea of the physical world and the digital world seamlessly co-existing. There are endless opportunities.”

Tempo wants to be the database at the center of the Internet of things | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
Once we connect 50 billion devices to the web by 2020, what will those devices talk to? Chicago Startup Tempo hopes those sensors will take to its database as a service — depositing their tiny bits of time series data inside its custom database.

The Internet of Things: A Boom for Hosting » Data Center Knowledge

The Internet of Things: A Boom for Hosting » Data Center Knowledge | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
The “Internet of Things” will transform the hosting and data center industries, generating a tidal wave of data that will prompt companies to enlist third-party providers to help them manage it, according to analyst Rachel Chalmers.

 

An ‘Inflection Point’ Ahead

Even greater opportunities lie ahead, said Chalmers, driven by the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices, known as the Internet of Things.

 

“There’s an inflection point coming that will dramatically raise the stakes and rewards,” said Chalmers. “Every single (enterprise) is in the process of redefining themselves as an information company. We believe hosting and managed services providers stand to be the main beneficiaries of this trend.”

 

The trend has begin in earnest with smartphones, but will accelerate as more devices and sensors become web-enabled and share data to help companies understand consumer behavior and business trends.

 

Mobile as a Precursor Market

“The Internet of mobile devices is already here,” said Chalmers. “There is a far bigger constellation of end points on the horizon. The numbers are poised to explode. We deeply believe that mobile is a precursor market for the Internet of things.”

 

The volume of data generated by all those devices will test the existing infrastructure for many enterprises, Chalmers said.
