Smart City Trust – think beyond cybersecurity and privacy

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Industrial IoT, Innovation Management, Internet of Things, Smart City, Smart Communities, Strategy

While a smart city is powered by technology and data, it is enabled and sustained by trust. Many people equate trust with privacy and cybersecurity. However, these are only two elements of many that create trust in a smart city. Trust must be embedded into the processes, policies and technology that create the city services. It must be integrated into its creators, users and beneficiaries from the very beginning.

This article introduces a holistic framework for building trust in a smart city for smart city planners and architects to consider.

Industrial IoT vs IoT - know the difference

Industrial IoT versus IoT – do you know the difference?

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in FAQs, Industrial IoT, Internet of Things, Product Management

Industrial IoT (IIoT) is not the same as IoT. Industrial IoT, a subset of the larger IoT, focuses on the specialized requirements of industrial applications, such as manufacturing, oil and gas, and utilities. Although IoT and IIoT share common technologies (sensors, cloud platforms, connectivity, and analytics), the similarities end there.

This article highlights key differences that product managers and buyers must know when planning industrial IoT solutions.

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in FAQs, Internet of Things, Sensors

While a lot of the attention on the Internet of Things (IoT) is on platforms, analytics or even machine learning, IoT really starts with the sensors at the point of use, or the “edge”.

This post is part of the “Back to Basics” briefings on the Internet of Things (IoT) architecture for executives, managers and anyone new to IoT. Using the “Follow the Data” approach, I’ll start at the edge with the IoT sensors, and work my way back to the core of the IoT system.

This article will describe the sensor technology and considerations when selecting sensors.
