Another day, another Internet of Things consortium | GizMag.com

Another day, another Internet of Things consortium | GizMag.com | Tech Innovation and Internet of Everything | Scoop.it

The flood of smart devices aimed at hooking into the Internet of Things (IoT) seems to be turning into a flood of consortia of industry heavyweights looking to standardize the IoT. First we had the AllSeen Alliance, which was followed by the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and now we have the Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC), which boasts Atmel, Dell, Broadcom, Intel, Samsung and Wind River as members.


The current IoT landscape is a hodgepodge of various different protocols shuttling data and enhancing the intelligence of everything from cars and washing machines to light bulbs and doormats. But with many of the protocols not compatible with each other, the OIC was founded with the goal of defining the wireless connectivity requirements of IoT devices to ensure interoperability between devices, regardless of form factor, operating system or provider.


Like the AllSeen Alliance and IIC, the OIC effort will have an open source aspect, allowing application developers and device manufacturers to deliver interoperable products across a variety of platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, Linux and Tizen. The consortium will also define certification requirements, with devices successfully completing compliance testing allowed to make use of branding intended to give consumers peace of mind when purchasing devices.


The goals of the OIC may sound similar to the AllSeen Alliance and the IIC (of which Intel is also a member), but the group claims that none of the other efforts address all the necessary requirements to overcome the challenge of IoT connectivity and interoperability.

The Internet Of Things Will Radically Change Your Big Data Strategy

The Internet Of Things Will Radically Change Your Big Data Strategy | Tech Innovation and Internet of Everything | Scoop.it

'Companies are jumping on the Internet of Things (IoT) bandwagon and for good reasons. McKinsey Global Institute reports that the IoT business will deliver $6.2 trillion of revenue by 2025. Many people wonder if companies are ready for this explosion of data generated for IoT. As with any new technology, security is always the first point of resistance. I agree that IoT brings a wave of new security concerns but the bigger concern is how woefully unprepared most data centers are for the massive amount of data coming from all of the “things” in the near future....'

(SPAN) Together Survey - Social Practices Arts Network

(SPAN) TOGETHER SURVEY: Very Preliminary Results The data collection phase is now complete! We are thrilled to share that 568 colleagues from 33 countries took part in the (SPAN) TOGETHER SURVEY. This level of participation far exceeded our expectations, and we are equally overwhelmed by the depth and generosity of the responses. Over the coming months we will be compiling and analyzing the survey findings as well as conducting follow up interviews to add an essential qualitative dimension to the report that will be released in Fall 2014. Given the range and scope of participants, we believe the resulting (SPAN) TOGETHER REPORT can serve as a starting place for a productive conversation in the field. For now, we wanted to share some basic information about the demographics of the participants.

CA: This Small Company is Connecting Big Cities to the Internet of Things | Motley Fool

CA: This Small Company is Connecting Big Cities to the Internet of Things | Motley Fool | Tech Innovation and Internet of Everything | Scoop.it

One of the leaders in machine-to-machine wireless communications, Sierra Wireless , made a deal few weeks ago with Philips to connect city lighting to the so-called Internet of Things -- and the partnership could significantly strengthen Sierra's dominance in the wireless module space.


Sierra Wireless will provide the wireless connection modules for the company's CityTouch light management service. Cities around the world are upgrading outdated systems like waste management, parking, and lighting by hooking them into the Internet in order to manage them more efficiently.


The city of San Jose recently teamed up with Intel to do just that. Intel will use sensors to measure pollutants in the air, improve traffic patterns and other utility improvements.


The collaboration between Intel and San Jose is expected to help spur economic growth in the city and help create 25,000 clean technology jobs. Cisco Systems has said that connecting the public sector to new technologies could bring $4.6 trillion in cost savings over the next decade. That savings isn't lost on other countries either. China is currently leading the world in its smart city ambitions.

Why the Internet of Things scares the “living crap” out of this security guru | Brandon Butler Opinion | NetworkWorld.com

Why the Internet of Things scares the “living crap” out of this security guru  | Brandon Butler Opinion | NetworkWorld.com | Tech Innovation and Internet of Everything | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things could be the next big thing in tech: A world of connected devices, from thermostats, refrigerators to enterprise tools like fleets of cars and data center switches.


But it could also turning into a real headache for security folks.


“The more data there is, the more opportunity there is for something to go wrong,” says Christopher Budd, a global threat communications manager at Trend Micro. Budd says a world of unsecured connected devices “scares the living crap out of me.”


“The kind of data we’re talking about is a lot scarier and a lot more meaningful than the information that has typically been stored on a PC five or 10 years ago,” he says. “As the devices connected to the Internet get closer to the physical person, the information they collect becomes more personal.” And so therefore the loss or illicit use of that data is that much more personal.
