The more I learn about blockchain’s possible uses — this time for supply chains — the more convinced I am that it is absolutely essential to full development of the IoT’s potential.
I recently raved about blockchain’s potential to perhaps solve the IoT’s growing security and privacy challenges. Since then, I’ve discovered that it can also […]
There’s a new Deloitte white paper that echoes a theme I’ve been repeating since 1990: smart businesses eliminate inefficiency by eliminating environmental waste.
I predict that the Internet of Things will speed that trend by allowing real-time data sharing throughout the supply chain, further increasing its efficiency.
The white paper, “The Evolving Supply Chain: Lean and Green,” […]
One final effort to work this blockchain obsession out of my system so I can get on to some exciting other IoT news!
I couldn’t resist summarizing for you the key points in”Blockchain: the solution for transparency in product supply chains,” a white paper from Project Provenance Ltd., a London-based collective (“Our common goal is to […]
Right after I submitted my final manuscript for The Future is Smart I had a chance to spend an hour with old friend Jason Daniels (we collaborated on a series of “21st Century Homeland Security Tips You Won’t Hear From Officials” videos back when I was a homeland security theorist) on his “Studio @ 50 […]

The Internet of Things (IoT) will soon be everywhere—embedded in interconnected devices we’ll use every day. Already, cars, appliances, and wearables transmit real-time […]
Critical Infrastructure and IoT
Robert Metzger, Shareholder, Rogers Joseph O’Donnell
a variety of constraints to direct government involvement in IoT
regulators: doesn’t trust private sector to do enough, but regulation tends to be prescriptive.
NIST can play critical role: standards and best practices, esp. on privacy and security.
Comparatively, any company knows more about potential and liabilities of IoT than […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
