GITEX, one of the largest IT exhibitions in the world, played a significant role in 2016 than ever before. It defined the latest technology trends, presented high caliber speakers, showcased product innovations & brought together ambitious tech startups from across the world. What’s so noteworthy about this year? It’s the one and only Internet of Things (IoT) which is at the heart of revolutionary transformation. Many enterprises strongly believe that IoT will transform their business practices, knowing that, in time, IoT will touch nearly every aspect of their operations and customer engagement. Leading companies are already investing in IoT, realizing returns in terms of increa

Integrating Legacy Tech on the Internet of Enterprise

Every enterprise is a brownfield scenario. Many legacy devices, especially those used in commercial and industrial applications, tend to have long life-spans. Existing device/tech haystack, in an enterprise, makes up 85 percent of all devices (IMS research), all of which mostly run isolated applications. When new data networking capabilities come along – we don’t uproot our existing infrastructure and start all over again – we layer them on top of our existing networks, continuing to improve and enhance them as we go. This drives business transformation to optimize efficiency of old and new devices, prevent failures, and create new services. Transforming siloed IT/OT to unified

As the 10th anniversary of the Earth Hour approaches, the climatic change is at a precarious tipping point. While the switching off of non-essential lights at home, historical sites and famous landmarks had its share of glory and benefits, it’s time we think ahead. It’s time to stretch the energy conservation goals and aim for better results. While it may not be possible to switch off the lights all around the year, we can sure give the energy conservation the precedence it deserves. Industrial sector is the biggest consumer of energy and inevitably there is where most of the energy wastage happens. From Predictive Maintenance to Resource Optimization there are a lot of areas where energy wastage can be ea…

A Cambrian Explosion in IoT evolution

    Studying the fossil record, evolutionary biologists have theorized an event called the Cambrian explosion. During a relatively short period, the diversity of animal life seems to have rapidly increased from predominately single-cell organisms to a much wider variety of complex organisms. In many respects, the Internet of Things (IoT) seems like the evolution of previous telemetry and industrial networking technologies. However, the IoT’s potential to converge our physical and digital worlds justifies its place at or near the top of the hyped technology list. In 2016, we will witness the beginning of a new era, transformed by a Cambrian-like stage of explosive IoT evolution. During t…
