Our Next Generation Hardware

Today, IoT is enabling us to expand our reach to a range of devices and hardware that gather and analyze data and react to it in a variety of applications that we’ve never seen before. IoT is allowing us to move from connected devices to connected intelligence and redistribute and process data independently at the edge.

So what is driving our next generation hardware? IoT and all of its promises are flattening the network architecture and have created new requirements for memory. Resource constrained applications are adding connectivity where little to none existed before. We are experiencing a significant shift in the way people acquire information, interact with each other, and make decisions. As the world of IoT moves forward, so does the need for hardware that can handle those connections and the amount of data that is produced. Then there is the growing acceptance of open-source, open programming, open hardware technologies; the support of “edgeware” applications; direct connection to the Cloud and the ability to bring different applications from different providers together.

Cybersecurity and the Board Room

Our connected business world means there are thousands of entry points in and out of companies. The exploding number of access points means we now have thousands of potential openings into our companies. What has been traditionally seen as a simple component of an organization’s infrastructure, throwing a firewall and antivirus solution down as an adequate cyber strategy, has evolved into something that can keep one awake at night. The scary truth is that network security does not work as well as we thought.

As cybersecurity has emerged as the number one priority today, it is becoming a front business issue and a board room issue. After a series of high profile data breaches and warnings, corporate boards find themselves dealing with cyber threats and security issues. Not long ago, cybersecurity was a term rarely, if ever, heard in the boardroom. Rather, information security was deemed to be a risk managed solely by the chief information or technology officer or the IT department. Those days are gone. With the long list of high profile cybersecurity hacks and the after effects that include drop in shareholder value, decline in sales, brand and customer erosion, regulatory inquiries and litigations, cybersecurity has become an increasingly challenging risk that boards must address.

IoT Defined

There are several definitions for IoT floating around. How we define it continues to evolve. We know one thing, IoT is here.

IoT represents diverse technologies and usage that enables both unprecedented opportunities. IoT is about delivering business relevant outcomes, not just connectivity, products and technologies. There is a very clear link between the value delivered and the capabilities of each of the components that make up an IoT solution.

Making Device Data Self-Describing to Enable Seamless Integration across Multiple Applications

The amount of data created by equipment, systems and devices has exploded in recent years. Today’s automation systems and smart devices produce tremendous amounts of data to the point where we have expanded our reach to a range of devices that can gather and analyze physical data and react to that data in a variety of applications that we’ve never seen before.

Powering the Edge to the Enterprise

Our connected world is increasingly populated with smart equipment and devices. As convergence of these continues, we are seeing the rise of connected edge devices and greater intelligence at the edge.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing our world, including our development and strategies for building equipment, devices and applications. IoT is presenting tremendous new opportunities for creating, operating and servicing and is leading the way for updated business value delivery. Business operations are becoming "smart" by being connected further out on the edge. The full range of possibilities created by IoT continues to grow and is now being realized by enterprises across the world. The impacts of these technologies are fundamentally revolutionizing the way products are created today and how enterprises do business.
