There are a few ‘The ______ of Our Lives’ out there: Days. Time. Moments. Love. They define who we are, where we’ve been and where we are going. And today, many of those days, times, moments and loves interact with applications. Both the apps we tap and the back end applications used t...
They say good things come to those who wait – but sometimes good things happen simultaneously and you don’t even have to wait to revel in them. While I was enjoying a week of snowboarding in Val d’Aosta, right by the legendary Matterhorn, DDN was announcing the new WOS 360 at the Next ...
IoT is not a new concept. Wikipedia says: “The term Internet of Things was proposed by Kevin Ashton in 1999 though the concept has been discussed in the literature since at least 1991.” In its early stages, the concept relates to the use of radio-frequency identification (RFID) and how...
The top predictions for 2014 business technology investment, according to Gartner Inc., include a focus on disruptions brought about by digital business, the Internet of Things, smart machines and the onset of what they call the Digital Industrial Revolution. That forward-looking view...
I spend most of my time researching, writing and speaking on enterprise mobility, the IoT and digital transformation. All of these discussions are related to the concept of Code Halos. Code Halos (see video) are digital profiles of people, places, things, organizations, etc. They ar...
Savvy executive leaders are already prepared for the shift to more progressive business technology deployments throughout the enterprise. Open hybrid cloud architectures, big data analytics and mobile applications are high-growth platforms at the center of this shift. In particular, t...
Did you hear about Google buying Nest for an incredible amount of money a few weeks back? Be honest: do you have any idea who Nest is or what they do? More specifically – be honest again – do you have any idea what Nest is trying to do or what platform they are built upon? ...
Until recently, API clients were assumed to usually be mobile devices. In fact, if you see a diagram on a Powerpoint slide of an API being called, it is usually a mobile app which is doing the calling. Now, we're moving on to the "Internet of Things" (IoT). IoT raises interesting requi...
I spent last week working with four brilliant technology analysts in Chicago. It was -40 degrees Fahrenheit with the windchill. Who would schedule a meeting in Chicago mid-winter? Even in the conference room it was cold, and we were all wearing coats and scarves! It made for a great ...
Welcome to M2M News Weekly, an online newsletter that consists of the most interesting news and articles related to M2M (machine to machine) and embedded mobile devices. I aggregate the information, include the original links and add a synopsis of each article. I also search for the ...
You might not know but last week was the 10 year birthday of Cabir, the first mobile malware. It spread through Bluetooth after infecting the Nokia Series 60 phones running Symbian. Also last week, Kindsight Security Labs (Alcatel-Lucent) released the results of a study (pdf) that foun...
The coming “Internet of Many Different Things” is not a world that is still way out in the future. According to researchers, somewhere between 2008 and 2009 there were as many “things” connected to the Internet as the number of people on the planet – over 6 billion! According to GSMA...
Until recently, when I would talk about "APIs", I would qualify it by saying "Web APIs", in order to distinguish from the older meaning of APIs as more the tightly-coupled APIs used in Java, C/C++, or even Visual Basic. If you just said "APIs", until recently, some people may think you...
Our homes are being invaded…but not with critters that you’d call an exterminator for. Last summer I wrote Hackable Homes about the potential risks of smart homes, smart cars and vulnerabilities of just about any-’thing’ connected to the internet. (I know, everyone loves a bragger) ...
When we made our 2013 predictions for the realm of APIs, our premise was that API adoption and use was still a relatively nascent area, but one about to explode once smart people figured out its potential. We were certainly spot-on in that regard, but few believed us when we suggested ...
Welcome to the future where light bulbs suck power for WiFi even when they are switched off (as reported by Redmonk's Tom Raftery), where a smart thermostat company is bought for $3.2 billion, and where electric vehicles can take commands from your wristwatch. What does this all hav...
If you happened to be in attendance at CES (Consumers Electronic Show) 2014 in Las Vegas, you might have picked up some information about the Internet of Things. It seems, to our ears, the Internet of Things has gone from a small and interesting topic of conversation at Cloud trade sho...
Another 2014 prediction is the evolution and emergence of the ‘Cloud Name System’, a directory system for Cloud applications in the same way DNS (Domain Name System) works for the web and email. Lori Vittie wrote a while back about the need for an ‘SNS’ – a Service Name System, a DNS...
This phrase “Internet of Things” is making big rounds these days, specially this week at CES (Consumer Electronic Show), Las Vegas. Not sure who came up with this, maybe Cisco in one of their self-serving predictions of the enormous growth of devices connected to the Internet (from abo...
Over the course of the past decade, there's been a lot of hype pertaining to the_ Internet of Things (IoT)_ and how China leads the U.S. in this technology -- yet many who are active on the Internet are still unaware of its existence. In its simplest form, IoT is an evolving wireless ...
Throughout 2013 most senior executives have been exposed to the key emerging business technology trends. During 2014, you're going to see and hear a lot more about the Internet of Things (IoT) -- and the impact will reach just about every industry and all the major markets within the G...
Each of us are surrounded by our digital choices, preferences, activities, history and experiences that are captured as data and analyzed by the systems and websites we use. Why did Google, a company known for its search engine, develop a mobile operating system? They recognized the ...
