Fasten your seatbelts! I think I’ve finally zeroed in on the Internet of Things’ (IoT’s) most important potential economic benefit and how it could simultaneously help us escape the growing global environmental crisis:
make real-time IoT data* the hub of a circular economy and management mentality. It’s both good for the bottom line and the planet.
I started writing about circular […]
Several months ago I predicted that Amazon’s Echo might become the IoT’s killer device, primarily because it is voice activated. It appears that prediction is coming true, which should give the entire consumer IoT a boost because Amazon is also providing a soup-to-nuts approach of devices, platform, and storage meeting a wide range of IoT […]
Oops: I’ve been preoccupied with all sorts of dreck since returning from my SAP event, so I haven’t been able to post.
Did want to call your attention to a long IoT Day interview I did with the estimable Sudha Jamthe, author of The Internet of Things Business Primer. We covered a range of topics, including […]

A degree of precision in every aspect of the economy impossible before the IoT is one of my fav memes, in part because it should encourage companies that have held back from IoT strategies to get involved now (because they can realize immediate benefits in lower operating costs, greater efficiency, etc.), and because it brings with […]
Got here a little late for CEO Jim Heppelman’s keynote, so here goes!
Vuforia: digital twin gives you everything needed for merging digital “decorations” on the physical object
Unique perspective: AR takes digital back to the physical. Can understand & make better decisions.
Virtual reality would allow much of the same. Add in 3-D printing, etc.
“IoT is PLM.” Says […]
Hope you’ll join me and Mendix (which, BTW, Gartner just tabbed as a platform as service [Paas] “Magic Quadrant” leader for its low-code tools for rapid app development!), for a 10 AM (EDT) webinar Tuesday the 2nd on creating incremental IoT strategies (register here).
In a way, this is an update of the e-book I wrote for […]
Perhaps the most important component of a successful IoT transformation is building it on a robust platform, because that alone can let your company go beyond random IoT experiments to achieve an integrated IoT strategy that can add new components systematically and create synergistic benefits by combining the various aspects of the program.
A good starting […]
After a harrowing trip via Air France (#neveragain) I’m in lovely Barcelona, live-blogging Gartner ITxpo courtesy of Siemens — but they aren’t dictating my editorial judgment.
Keynoter is Peter Sondergaard, Sr. VP, Gartner Research:
start with high-scale traditional IT structures, but with new emphasis on cloud, etc. IT system now partially inside your org. and part outside. We […]
Get ready for the age when every product will have a “digital twin” back at the manufacturer, a perfect copy of not just the product as it left the factory floor, but as it is functioning in the field right now. That will be yet another IoT game-changer in terms of my 4th IoT Essential Truth, […]
