  • There are many opportunities for federal agencies to use the Internet of Things to operate more efficiently and effectively, but few agencies are pursuing these opportunities. There are a number of challenges preventing greater adoption of the Internet of Things among federal agencies.

  • Products connected to the Internet of Things are providing unprecedented levels of information. And that, in turn, is changing the way companies can think about what their customers want and how to design the products they need.

  • According to analysts cited in AT&T’s report, “What Every CEO Needs to Know about Cybersecurity,” the number of connected devices could reach nearly 50 billion by 2020. You are probably seeing that happen inside industrial facilities around the globe.
    Close to 35 percent of U.S. manufacturers are using smart sensors to improve operations. These devices are transmitting data, such as equipment operations, environmental conditions, and maintenance needs. Manufacturers are deploying sensors that measure and report machine tool tolerances, fluid temperatures, and other critical data. The growth of IoT is ushering in a new era of increased production and efficiency.

  • Manufacturing is changing. The traditional view of manufac-turing plants as islands of automation, expertise, and control no longer stands up in an ever more connected world. With that, manufacturing is becoming of much more interest to executives and Information Technology staff than was typical in the past. This has led to a substantial change in the demographics of people that LNS Research attracts to its surveys and the general interest in plant technology in manufacturing companies. This has undoubtedly been accelerated by interest in the Internet of Things (IoT) and, in particular, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This year’s survey reflects that change by focusing more on the “soft” metrics that define how businesses are changing rather than on those that are purely numerical, financial, and operational.

  • Yesterday, the value of commercial real estate was all in location. Tomorrow, much of it will be in information—and how CRE companies can use that information to build relationships with customers and strengthen tenant engagement.

  • The following white paper defines the Internet of Things (IoT) for our building automation industry as an integrated ecosystem. While many companies in this space focus just on the Internet connectivity to billions of devices and sensors, we believe that connectivity is only one segment of the ecosystem.

  • From smart TVs and gaming consoles to connected appliances and environmental controls, the Internet of Things (IoT) has permeated everyday living. But the IoT is hardly limited to the home — the technology can also give city, county and state governments deeper insights into their use of infrastructure and services.

  • Social, mobile, analytics, the cloud, the Internet of Things—the confluence of these five advances is disrupting industries. And this list is growing. Companies who simply adapt their technology to the way they do business are missing the boat. Leading-edge businesses are instead adapting their businesses to the capabilities these technologies provide. Not all businesses are born digital. If your company needs to articulate and implement a forward-thinking digital strategy, listen to MIT Sloan’s Jeanne Ross in her webinar, Digital Disruption: Transforming Your Company for the Digital Economy.

  • Over 3.7 billion passengers will fly this year, and the numbers continue to grow. Boeing forecasts that, within the next 20 years, over 38,000 new airplanes are needed to accommodate passengers and cargo. Passengers expect more for less from airlines. Consequently, costs per ticket are expected to decline and on-time statistics to increase. These expectations are passed onto the airplane and engine manufacturers to constantly innovate, reduce operational costs, and increase the uptimes of airlines.
