  3. 3. The Internet of Things The next BIG thing on the Planet Earth The Internet of Things provides more insight and possibly a solution for every problem on the Planet Earth. The Internet of Things is an ecosystem of connected devices and physical objects with sensors and built-in intelligence, and will talk to and monitor each other over the mobile Internet for conserving resources, better decisions, and increasing the efficiency and productivity. !3
  4. 4. IoT and Big Data Internet of Things means BIG data Improved decision making Improves the efficiency of the system and infrastructure Increases the transparency Transforms the daily life! Government and organizations SHOULD Make the data and intelligence available to the citizens and stakeholders. !4
  5. 5. India + IoT = The Opportunity Better life for citizens with ubiquitous computing Benefits of technology advancements Citizens have not seen these benefits other than the mobile phone IoT hides in ambience and provides the benefits to all citizens Better government services IoT drives the government to prioritize citizens ahead of politics Transforms the government from analog to digital system Better living standards for the people Job creation and economic development Safer, secure and informed society Better environment Optimal usage of natural resources with improved services Creating the future for the next generations !5
  6. 6. Encouraging Entrepreneurs IoT requires localized innovation which requires government support IoT helps in nation building, especially with idle money and provides equal opportunity and benefits across the society. !6
  7. 7. Pilot Projects Crucial for developing right solutions for local problems Piloting helps startups and new products to evolve and in worst case to fail fast, fail cheap. Government should support piloting of IoT technologies to promote local industry. !7
  8. 8. Standards, Security and Privacy Building IoT requires home grown technologies and products Standards are still evolving and country can contribute the global standards Government should focus on security of connected things; requires homegrown products Government should also focus on data collection, storage, custody, access and privacy !8
  9. 9. The Focus Areas India is a unique country requires unique solutions Standards: defining a set of guidelines for standards use and to develop guidelines for secure connectivity and data privacy Applications: short term and log term application focus areas wherein IoT can be deployed Piloting: plan and support from government for piloting the new IoT solutions from local companies Funding for R&D: funding for innovation in areas linked to the Internet of Things Advisory board: Advocacy for using homegrown technologies and products for better security, privacy and sustainability !9
