Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.
Nine billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices today, and the number is growing. Organizations must consider how to manage the complexities of connecting to a seemingly unlimited number of devices and how to effectively integrate IoT data with data from other sources, such as internal data stores. Business value comes to those who improve their data capabilities—integration, automation and analysis—not to those who simply connect the most devices to the network. Watson IoT is a set of capabilities that learn from, and infuse intelligence into, the physical world. The IoT generated data, and it is extremely varied, noisy, time-sensitive and often confidential. Complexity grows as billions of devices interact in a moving world. This presents a growing challenge that will test the limits of programmable computing. Cognitive IoT is our opportunity to fully exploit this resource. Cognitive IoT is not explicitly programmed. It learns from experiences with the environment and interactions with people. It brings true Machine Learning to systems and processes so they can understand your goals, then integrate and analyze the relevant data to help you achieve them.
By 2018, 33% of all industry leaders will be disrupted by digitally enabled competitors (Source: IDC) Be a disruptor by developing and deploying an IoT strategy so you can tap into the value of connecting the unconnected. IoT is becoming critical for organizations today to understand where new sources of value could come from in their industry – whether it is from operational efficiencies, better customer experiences, safety or even new revenue models. Dell Technologies can help you become a disruptive force in your industry through IoT. We bring: • The industry’s broadest infrastructure portfolio • A curated technology and services partner program • Proven use case-specific solution blueprints
AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS Endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, companies' applications can keep track of and communicate with all their devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected. The AWS IoT Device Gateway enables devices to securely and efficiently communicate with AWS IoT. The Device Gateway can exchange messages using a publication/subscription model, which enables one-to-one and one-to-many communications. With this one-to-many communication pattern AWS IoT makes it possible for a connected device to broadcast data to multiple subscribers for a given topic. The Device Gateway supports MQTT and HTTP 1.1 protocols and you can easily implement support for proprietary or legacy protocols. The Device Gateway scales automatically to support over a billion devices without provisioning infrastructure.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing exponentially. According to analysts, the number of connected objects is expected to reach 50 billion by 2020. The ability to transform ordinary products into smart, connected objects is allowing businesses to generate new revenue streams and drive innovation. Orange Business Services systematically takes the entire lifecycle of clients' business into consideration and guides them in designing customized, end-to-end solutions that not only meet today’s needs but take your future needs into account as well. Because IoT solutions are industry-specific, Orange approachs every engagement with an open mind. Orange's tailored solutions accommodate different technologies and system architectures, and they partner with different industry players as needed. They have customer references in a wide variety of sectors, including manufacturing, transportation, retail, health and smart cities.
