As The Internet of Things goes from gimmicky internet-enabled toasters to enterprise level solutions the industry is asking three big questions.
Firstly – they see that in some cases businesses are enjoying huge reward from using it but can’t see a way to apply it to their industry. Salmon farmers, for example, are using it so monitor their produce in remote locations. Small fluctuations in temperature can have devastating effects on the fish and without real-time data it’s impossible to prepare for events such as an outbreak of disease.
Secondly – what does is take to build the infrastructure needed for large-scale IoT projects? Gartner’s research showed that 25 billion connected “things” will likely be connected to the Internet by 2020, each competing for bandwidth and server resource. The amount of data involved will be mind-boggling.
Thirdly – how do we secure these devices? Last year hackers remotely commandeered a moving Jeep Cherokee and brought it to a standstill. It was a scary glimpse of a future that will become certain if the industry doesn’t wise up and properly protect their products.
IoT Slam aims to help answer these questions in their virtual conference on the 28th of April. Industry leaders will share their experience and knowledge to those looking to get a grip on the rising trend.
