Internet of Things -
Platform is Key
Real value is created in the horizontal platform
that ties it all together — the new OS. The
platform consists of 3 layers: management,
infrastructure, and data analytics and insights.
Business value proposition
The adoption of | oT will be much more like the
traditional IT diffusion model businesses to
consumers(B2C) than the Consumer-led
adoption of social media and personal mobility.
Connected car disrupts loT
By 2020, there will be a quarter billion connected
vehicles on the road, enabling new in-vehicle
services and automated driving capabilities,
according to Gartner. During the next five years,
the proportion of new vehicles equipped with this
capability will increase dramatically, making
connected cars a major element of | oT.
Mobile phone - gateway for | oT
Smartphone is integral to | oT, for example looking
with iBeacons and Apple watch. What will become
even more interesting is when data analytics uses
the mobile phone as one of many processing
platforms for geo-distributed analytics.
Privacy and Security
Security and privacy rely on encryption and
application design. Methodical design processes
will help ensure their protection. The biggest
challenge with | oT is scale. |oT infrastructure — a
networked infrastructure that connects countless
entities, devices and systems will remain a complex
maze of standards and design.
Paradigm Shifts by
| oT Landscape will evolve
| oT is a greenfield market - new players, with new
business models, approaches, and solutions will
appear out of nowhere and overtake incumbents.
Big Data is the Lever
| oT technologies allow for real—time and accurate
data sensing and wireless transmission of that
data to Web applications and servers connected
to the Internet, making Big Data the key to
Smart city deployments
A smart city as an urbanized area where multiple
sectors cooperate to achieve sustainable outcomes
through the analysis of contextual, real-time
information shared among sector-specific
information and operational technology
systems. Gartner says Smart Cities will use 1.1
billion connected things by the end of 2015.
Alphabet soup of standards
Several different | oT standards are currently
competing with each other, and more may be
joining the contest soon. A significant barrier to
mass adoption of | oT is the lack of agreement over
technical standards, and many like Qualcomm will
join both A| lSeen alliance and Thread.
Mergers, Acquisitions and
| oT will reach the ‘Peak of Inflated Expectations’ in
about 10 years. Before we get there we have to head
through the Trough of Disillusionment, which we
believe will leave a number of companies going out of
business or being absorbed. Examples over the last
two years - Nest, SmartThings, Neul, ThingWorx,
Standards will be key for | oT, and will tip in the favor of a "Complete solution”. Vendors
offering end—to—end wireless hardware to software / services / integration forming around
business use cases will win. Important beach heads are - Google (Brillo, Thread, weave),
Allseen Alliance, M2M Alliance to name a few.
