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 […]
There are so many direct, quantifiable benefits of the IoT, such as increased quality (that 99.9988% quality rate at Siemens’s Amberg plant!) and precision, that we may forget there are also potential intangible benefits.
Most important of those is customer loyalty, brought about by dramatic shifts both in product designs and how they are marketed.
Much of this […]
Could the IoT’s most profound impact be on management and corporate organization, not just cool devices?
I’ve written before about my still-being-refined vision of the IoT — because it (for the first time!) allows everyone who needs instant access to real-time data to do their jobs and make better decisions to share that data instantly — […]

I want to offer you six great reasons — five of them are seated with my wife and me in this photo — why we all should make global warming a primary focus of IoT projects for the foreseeable future.
There simply is no way to sugar-coat the grim news coming out of the Paris climate talks: […]
Count me among those who believe the Internet of Things will affect every aspect of corporate operations, from manufacturing to customer relations.
Perhaps one of the most dramatic impacts will be on the range of activities that take place after the sale, including maintenance, product liability, product upgrades and customer relations.
In the past, this has been […]
The specific impetus for this post was an article in The Boston Globe about heart stents that fit perfectly because they’re 3-D printed individuallly for each patient.
That prompted me to think of how manufacturing may change when three of my favorite technologies — nanotech, 3-D printing and the Internet of Things — are fully mature […]
PROCEED WITH CAUTION!
You see, I’m thinking out loud (that accounts for that sound of gears grinding….) — I really am writing this post as I mull over the subject for the first time, so you’re forewarned that the result may be a disaster — or insightful. Bear with me…
