The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot word right now — so hot, in fact, that it’s bordering on becoming as worn-out as ‘bae’ and Tamagotchis (R.I.P. sweet, sweet Tamagotchi).
But the technology itself is certainly not worn-out. From smartwatches and Fitbits, to cars, home thermostats and toasters, everything is now connected to the Internet. And while your enterprise users won’t be bringing in personal toasters anytime soon (unless your office is out of a college dorm), they already are bringing their Apple Watches into the workplace, and controlling Internet-enabled technologies from work and their homes.
How does IT manage massive IoT data sets putting new strains and challenges on enterprises? Moreover, how do you visualize these complex datasets so you can actually analyze them? What are the overall implications of IoT technology on not only organizations, but the consumer?
We’ve put together a complete guide to the Internet of Things covering all angles for IT managers. Unlike the Tamagotchi, IoT is here to stay, despite an over-hyped title to describe its technology.
Research Report: Real-Time Analytics and the Internet of Things
Smart objects in an Internet of Things (IoT) environment generate massive amounts of data when connected to enterprise networks. This report focuses on those organizations that have invested in streaming data integration and analytics to convert IoT data into actionable insight.
Flash Forward: Updating IoT Could Change Everything
It’s the rise of the machines in our everyday lives — the IoT is making its presence felt with more gadgets than ever before connected to the Internet. From smartwatches to home automation, our lives are poised more than ever to be subject to change based on the next big release date.
Data Management for the Internet of Things
The IoT puts the ‘big’ in big data — it is vast, fast-moving, and complex. This report examines the current state of data management, and details the capabilities needed to manage IoT data and maximize value.
