IoT means that everyday physical objects, from vehicles to manufacturing equipment to hotel coffee makers all connected to the Internet, and can be connected to each other. The common characteristics of any IoT-connected device are the presence of: a unique identifier, an IP address, and Internet connectivity; the ability to emit and receive information; the ability to interact with other objects; and the ability to perform these functions without requiring either human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Architecturally, an IoT deployment has three basic components: edge, network, and core. The edge is where the managed devices, the things, live. The things contain embedded intelligence that links them via the network to the core. IoT is at the beginning stages of its growth. Because it offers the ability to capture and leverage data across virtually every aspect of human experience, the potential upside for IoT is enormous. What the majority of the world s organizations that do not yet have IoT on the drawing board must figure out, is what IoT looks like, where it fits, and the real-world issues and benefits it delivers, as they weigh their decisions about whether (or when) to deploy IoT. Self-aware machines and data networks can immensely improve companies productivity, and at any given point in time, the entire enterprise can be optimized to match the changes in the market. Other services that will become integrated into IoT platforms include operations management, ERP, and business management systems. The complex network of sensors across IoT environments are powered by communication technologies to form a real-time data monitoring network. Real-time data of assets, machines, and devices are of immeasurable value. Therefore, with the wide variety of information generated by connected devices and sensors, an engine that can mine the extremely large datasets to extract relevant information will drive the future of IoT adoption. Analytics can derive insights through predicting, monitoring, and analyzing the collected data through efficient mining algorithms. Thus, it is expected to improve the efficiencies of, for example, inventory management, sales, and continuous monitoring of devices. IoT is presenting Strong innovation and demand. More products and services are being fitted for IoT. They include vehicle telematics in trucks, product tracking alerts in truck containers, self-reporting vending machines that inform distribution, user-based car insurance, and real-time traffic information to GPS devices.

Homes are no longer a place for eating, sleeping and relaxing but altered into a connected and personalized ecosystem of services. With the arrival of Internet of Things (IoT), technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, near field communication are enabling many devices to communicate with each other making the home smarter. With decrease in prices of sensors number of people can afford smart devices and connect them in many number of ways which is not possible earlier. Brands such as Samsung, Philips, Panasonic, Godrej, Honeywell few among others are expanding their connected devices portfolio and creating seamless smart home hubs combining with home automation market. In brief, this research service covers the following points: Home Automation Market An Overview Drivers and Restraints in Home Automation Market Popular Home Automation Products in India Technology Roadmap for Home Automation Systems Analyst Viewpoints on Home Automation Fri, 28 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Unblocking the Blockchain: Innovations Revolutionizing the Energy and Industrial Sectors http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=D878-01-00-00-00 The rising demand for faster and secure payments by banks and end-users along with full transparency has made Blockchain one of the fastest growing technology market in the world. Banks are investing heavily in R&D activity related to verifying and recording finance transactions. Also, major US technology companies such as IBM, Microsoft, and startup innovators are developing Blockchain-based services and applications, thereby driving the global Blockchain development market. Blockchain technology is positioned to meet the increasingly complex demands of the digital-first future through smart contract capabilities, middlemen elimination and provenance and consensus on all transactions. Blockchain greatly reduces transaction costs by eliminating middlemen along the supply chain. This is a key factor that will drive the adoption of this technology across all industries. Blockchain is capable of resolving issues prevalent across industry sectors by introducing Blockchain-based micro payments and contract pricing models, thereby eliminating the transaction cost. In brief, this research service covers the following points: Blockchain An overview Drivers and challenges for Blockchain adoption Blockchain-based Energy and Industrial Applications and its impact Use case by Energy and Industrial Sectors Patent, adoption trends, and key funding initiatives Thu, 27 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Frost & Sullivan on Tech Mahindra s 2018 TechMNXT Summit http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-market-insight.do?id=298745112 Fri, 7 Sep 2018 01:23:31 +0100 Movers & Shakers Interview with Vanesa Meyer, VP of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships, VISA Latin America and the Caribbean http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-market-insight.do?id=298745076 Fri, 7 Sep 2018 00:37:33 +0100
