Eclipse Foundation 2021 survey IoT market accelerating

Adoption of IoT technology and edge computing accelerating

Spending decisions on IoT and edge are increasingly being made at the executive level due to a growing perception of the technologies as being strategically vital. Decisions are now being made at the executive level 35 percent of the time, almost double the 18 percent in the 2019 survey.

Investments in both technologies continue upwards at a significant trajectory. 30 percent of the respondents expect to spend $100K-$1M (a 2x increase over 2019) while 16 percent anticipate a spend upwards of $1M (a 25% increase over 2019).

Open-source IoT and edge computing platforms look set to benefit the most from this increasing enterprise investment. 74 percent of organisations now factor open-source into their deployment plans, an increase of 14 percent over 2019.

The respondents note the main attraction to open-source is the ability to customise or influence code in projects (29%), followed by cost advantages (18%) and flexibility (14%).

It is a beautiful experience to see the market maturing and expanding like this. We have always had huge faith in IoT and its position in the modern society, but to see this amazing increase in interest over such a short time says a lot about what is to come.

That enterprise corporations start to see the value of IoT on an excecutive level and that they are so informed that they take open-source technology into such a big consideration is what really will solifidy IoT as a staple of modern businesses and cities. As we see it, open IoT technology is the only way to go if IoT is to benefit society at large, enabling positive sustainable changes while protecting users and their data.

How IoT can help the retail market recover

[…] with same and next day delivery, or live access to available stock, it is perhaps unsurprising that a majority of customers will favour online retailers due to the efficiency and seamlessness of the experience. Therefore, brick-and-mortar stores need to find a way to emulate this digital dynamic and personalised experiences in-store.

The retail market was already struggling, and with the impact of Covid, it has become time for change. We believe that personalizing the retail experience and adapting it to customer patterns will keep physical stores open for many years to come.

One way to bring customers safely back to stores is to use IoT sensors as people counters. Together with AXIS Communications, we offer a people counter package for stores. The package includes AXIS’ IoT cameras with onboard software for people counting, running on Sensative’s Yggio platform for data collection and visualization. With such a package, it becomes easy for stores to monitor visitors and display the number in real-time for everyone to see.

To further improve the experience, our customers can use sensors to monitor retail customers’ behavioral patterns in their stores, such as monitoring dressing rooms with presence sensors or seeing where they stop for extended periods, what products are most visited, and more using cameras and analytic algorithms. This type of behavioral data is paramount when laying the foundation for an optimized customer experience in-store. With the further aid of apps and tablets, the personalization of the customer experience has few limits.

Kraftringens sensorer hjälper invånarna i staden

Ett trådlöst nätverk med sensorer som kan berätta var det finns lediga parkeringsplatser eller soptunnor som behöver tömmas är på plats i Eslöv. Med hjälp av sensorteknik kan kommunerna få bättre underlag för allt från trafikplanering till underhållsarbete, samtidigt som det ökar tryggheten för invånarna.

Sensatives samarbete med Kraftringen och Eslövs Kommun uppmärksammas i Dagensnäringsliv #smartcity #smartastäder #IoT

IoT News – How Zero-Trust Should be Expanded to Include your Embedded Devices/IoT – IoT Business News

Earlier this year, Ubiquiti, a Silicon Valley-based IoT device maker, disclosed that it had been hacked. Customer account credentials were exposed, which allowed hackers to gain full access to all application logs, databases, user database credentials, and information required to forge single sign-on (SSO) cookies. This level of access would allow the attackers to remotely authenticate to countless Ubiquiti cloud-based devices, putting customers’ devices, such as routers, network video recorders, and security cameras, deployed in corporations and homes around the world at risk.

At Sensative we fully agree that ZeroTrust is the only way forward for IoT. But, this is way more difficult than for “normal IT”. IoT is not one network technology, it is often not even IP-based. So, the common solutions for ZeroTrust IT are not applicable to IoT mixed environments.

We are not only talking about it. We have solutions for ZeroTrust in IoT.

Our Yggio platform for any IoT technology is designed for ZeroTrust. But, many technologies are not designed for security; it is often something that is just added as a (shaky) feature on top. This is especially true if you consider a mixed environment with handover between different technologies and protocols.

Data and actions must be protected end-to-end, from device to user, disregarding communication technologies, standards, and protocols. And, it must work on very small and highly constrained devices. This is why Sensative is one of the participants in the EU financed Critisec project, among other initiatives.

It is not enough if we support ZeroTrust in our products. We understand that our customers will have a mix of suppliers, so we must enable them to choose freely but still secure their operations.

What Will Replace Building Management Systems?

Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are dominated by a small group of large corporations (Carrier, Goodman, Rheem, Trane, York, Lennox, and Nordyne) who collectively control over 90 percent of the U.S. market. These companies use the same generic terms to describe their operating systems, building management system (BMS) or alternatively building automation system (BAS). While these systems can be good at energy optimization and comfort control, HVAC accounts for just 40 percent of a standard commercial building’s total energy use, leaving a big gap to fill.

But the important thing is that it changes the focus of the building system to the entire building in a way that does not revolve around just heating and cooling. This shift is made possible by two shifts in technology.

At Sensative, we call it Digitalization infrastructure Management System – DiMS, and our Yggio DiMS is not only limited to Buildings. It enables Smart Buildings, Cities, Homes, Agriculture, Ships, to list a few…

Predictive Maintenance Market: From Niche Topic to High ROI Application

Predictive maintenance has clearly evolved from the rather static condition-monitoring approach. It has become a viable IoT application that is delivering overwhelmingly positive ROI. Several technological developments have contributed to the rapid market expansion—notably, a simplified process of connecting IoT assets, major advancements in cloud services, and improvements in the accessibility of machine learning (ML)/data science frameworks.

Sensative provides the integration part in this digitalization journey. IoT Analytics call it “Intelligent data mesh” in the graph above. We call it Yggio – Digitalization Infrastructure Management System (DiMS).
