On this IoT Time, Ken shames you if you not planning to be at the IoT Evolution Expo next week in Ft Lauderdale, tells you all about the first-ever IoT Evolution Awards and exhorts you to make sure you follow up with the best-in-class providers that win.
In this IoT Time, Ken says Happy New Year, misses David Bowie, and runs down the tech from CES that had an actual function. In his MyIoT segment, he applauds those few and proud developers who understand that 2016 will be the year of actual function in the IoT. It’s time to stop merely monitoring and get on to functioning.
On this IoT Time, Ken talks about IBM’s new Bluemix Mod for accessing the 70 percent of unleveraged data just floating out there, unleveraged. He also dips into a discussion of how and why storing data in the cloud is safer than keeping it on your local servers. Cloud City, baby.
In this IoT Time, Ken calls for better IoT security, but says it can’t be bolted on, and it can’t be by locking all the functions and data up on local devices. That kind of approach will never build the consumer and user confidence needed to keep the IoT afloat. No, instead there needs to be security built in from the ground up.
There are two IoTs: consumer and industrial. The Consumer IoT is where most people understand what’s going on: smart homes, wearables, drones, devices and connected cars. The Industrial IoT is the home of the infrastructure enhancements, intelligent buildings and cities and dirty underbelly of the connected world that makes it all work, and can make a real difference in the future of humanity. They have a lot to learn from each other, and it’s time we all started recognizing that.

The IoT Evolution Expo at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas might be over, but the impact of all the sessions, strategy discussions and exhibit hall meetings will resound throughout the industry all year. In today’s IoT Time, we talked about the findings of our Security Summit, who won the Battle of the Platforms and the AT&T Fast Pitch competitions, and what the IoT is really all about. In MyIoT, I call for the establishment of a global standards body for the IoT, soon. Because without it, the industry will never grow cohesively, and will never be truly accepted by the mass of consumers.
