Ce que vous devriez déjà savoir à propos de l’Internet des objets

Il y a quelques semaines j’écrivais un article à propos des différentes étapes par lesquelles une entreprise doit passer avant de sauter le pas de l’Internet des objets (IoT). Je soulignais par exemple l’importance de centraliser et analyser les données collectées grâce aux appareils connectés. Mais pour y parvenir avec brio, il faut faire attention […]

La lección sobre IoT que ya deberíamos haber aprendido 

Hace unas semanas escribí sobre los pasos que las empresas deben iniciar para prepararse ante la llegada de Internet de las Cosas (IoT). Me centraba en la importancia de gestionar y analizar los datos generados, a partir de los dispositivos conectados. Pero conseguirlo depende de dos variables: conectividad y seguridad.

Apparently the Internet of Things (IoT) isn’t just a passing fad. Global spending on IoT is expected to grow 16.7% year over year in 2017, reaching just over $800 billion.

Transforming to a digital enterprise

Change is everywhere, it’s accelerating, and most companies today recognize that disruption has come to their industries, fueled by advances in digital technologies and more collaborative outside-in cultures.

With their ability to plug and play and consume services, platforms are today’s go-to business model. The agility allows organisations to embrace an ever-widening network — or ecosystem — of value-adding contributors.

The essential vehicle for digital transformation

Ask 10 enterprise professionals to define “digital transformation” and you’re liable to get 10 different answers. But however digital transformation is defined, it simply isn’t possible without mobile technology. With that in mind, enterprise IT leaders must ensure their mobile initiatives are on track, strategically and operationally. Otherwise digital transformation will be derailed — and that spells potential […]

Healthcare industry still concerned about medical device hacking

A Ponemon survey released last week, Medical Device Security: An Industry Under Attack and Unprepared to Defend, shows that many in the healthcare industry still believe medical devices are primed for, and defenseless to, attack. While the study’s title smacks of hyperbole – medical devices are not coming under significant attack in the wild today (yet) […]
