Five Challenges of Analyzing Internet of Things (#IoT) Data

Five Challenges of Analyzing Internet of Things (#IoT) Data | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The analysis of Internet of Things (IoT) data is quickly becoming a mainstream activity. I’ve written about the Analytics of Things (AoT) before (some examples herehere, and here). For this blog, I’m going to focus on a few unique challenges that you’ll most likely encounter as you move to take IoT data into the AoT realm.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: as I work with colleagues to bring IOT into retail stores, challenges are many including those highlighted here.

Fourth Industrial Revolution | Explore | TOPLINK

Fourth Industrial Revolution | Explore | TOPLINK | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions. These advances are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create both huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this revolution is forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organisations create value and even what it means to be human. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is about more than just technology-driven change; it is an opportunity to help everyone, including leaders, policy-makers and people from all income groups and nations, to harness converging technologies in order to create an inclusive, human-centred future. The real opportunity is to look beyond technology, and find ways to give the greatest number of people the ability to positively impact their families, organisations and communities.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the world economic forum provides a trove of useful data and analysis on topics related to the 4th industrial revolution. It provides useful insight into key digital technologies related to that topics as well.

Is this the future of the Internet of Things? #IOT #M2M via @wef

Is this the future of the Internet of Things? #IOT #M2M via @wef | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Think of the trends we’ve seen emerge in recent years:

  • Sensors and actuators, including implantables and wearables, that let us capture more data and impressions from more objects in more places, and that affect the environment around them.
  • Ubiquitous computing and hyperconnectivity, which exponentially increase the flow of data between people and devices and among devices themselves.
  • Nanotechnology and nanomaterials, which let us build ever more complex devices at microscopic scale.
  • Artificial intelligence, in which algorithms become increasingly capable of making decisions based on past performance and desired results.
  • Vision as an interface to participate in and control augmented and virtual reality
  • Blockchain technology, which makes all kinds of digital transactions secure, verifiable, and potentially automatic.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the number of devices connected to the Internet will dwarf anything else we've seen since the early web  and usher an era of machine-to-machine and AI infused solutions, further bridging the real-world and the digital world.

Email this to your CEO with subject "URGENT" & ask what they are doing about this today? - Why digital transformation is now on the CEO’s shoulders via @McKinsey | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

...it forces CEOs to rethink how companies execute, with new business processes, management practices, and information systems, as well as everything about the nature of customer relationships. I’m seeing leaders who get this. They’re all over it: they want to launch five transformation initiatives right now; they’re talking to me and every digital leader they know about where the technology threats are coming from; and they’re hiring the best people to advise them. Yet I’m shocked by—even fearful for—the many CEOs I know who seem to be asleep at the switch.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: digital transforms every single business functions in the organizations. But unlike previous eras such as the Internet, this may be existential for many organizations. Thomas Siebel makes a very compelling arguments to get going big and hire great partners and consultants - think of me when you do! ;-)
