IOT 5.0: GETTING READY FOR THE NEXT PHASE OF IOT EVOLUTION
In 1Q 2020, Omdia and IoT World Today conducted an online survey with industry leaders from both IoT technology providers and enterprise end customers. The results highlight these organizations’ IoT drivers, challenges, adoption trends, and technology preferences, as well as exploring their views on 5G and AI impact on the IoT ecosystem.
IoT: The Intersection of Transformative Tech
This free interactive report examines the relationship between IoT and AI, Edge Computing, Cybersecurity and 5G, exploring the importance of each to the IoT project.
Questions around industrial capacity and provision are at the centre of our discussions in an unprecedented way. Find out more about the Industrial IoT below.
In the Industrial Realm, trustworthy software means safety
While many corporations struggle to win the trust of an ever more cynical public, the stakes are higher for industrial organizations that must rely on various software type.
Problematic software can cause operational downtime, intellectual property loss and, in some cases, life-threatening consequences.
There has been a recent uptick in interest in trustworthy software concerning the Internet of Things (IoT) and software quality in general. The fate of the digital economy depends on “individuals and organizations trusting computing technology.”
Integrating Analog controls into IIOT systems
As computing and networking gear in industrial environments become more sophisticated, so is the disparity between cutting-edge and decades-old equipment. This fact complicates the process of calculating cybersecurity risk.
Roughly half of industrial organizations prioritize increasing visibility of connected control systems and configurations, according to the SANS 2019 State of OT/ICS Cybersecurity Survey. More than a third of respondents prioritized performing security assessments or audits of industrial control systems. Determining the optimal role of analog controls can be another challenge.

In Japan, Smart Cities have a social dimension
In Japan, a country with considerable technological influence on the global stage, the concept of a “smart city” has a strong social dimension, explained Atsushi Deguchi, a professor and vice dean at the University of Tokyo at Industrial IoT World last year.
While in the U.S., smart city projects tend to focus on making technology upgrades to drive efficiency and awareness, in Japan, smart city initiatives are more likely to focus on driving social cohesion and addressing social ills, such as the country’s aging population, according to Deguchi, who is also the director of the Urban Design Center Kashiwa-no-ha.
Smart City Projects need to be Data Driven
The phrase “data-mature city” doesn’t roll off the tongue the same way “smart city” does. But if there was a single way to categorize a city as intelligent, it would involve assessing how they collect, analyze, integrate and use data. “Data is the rocket fuel for smart city transformation,” said Susan O’Connor, global director, public sector industry marketing at Oracle, referring to a 2018 ESI ThoughtLab report, which made that determination.

As new systems expand, evolve and penetrate further into daily life, IOT considerations can no longer be an afterthought
Tapping IoT Data to drive last-mile delivery
The recent rise of e-commerce generally – and the powerful influence of e-commerce leader Amazon specifically – changes the rules in freight asset management. A case in point is last-mile delivery, an area where IoT (Internet of Things) data may not yet be fully tapped.
The Amazon Prime push for two-day – and even same-day – delivery has altered perceptions of what’s possible in shipping. It also challenges companies of all kinds to employ IoT and other technologies to boost logistics skill sets and meet customers’ new expectations.
Why Michelin is pursuing a Products-as-a-service strategy
Today, products are often most useful and profitable when offered as services.
In the automotive and trucking realm, evidence of that fact is everywhere. Truck makers like Daimler and Volvo Trucks have growing remote diagnostics and telematics businesses, while traditional tire companies like Continental, Bridgestone, Pirelli and Michelin have expanded fleet management and telematics offerings.
For its part, Michelin is diversifying its traditional tire business with an expanding number of services.
The product-as-a-service shift has compelled Michelin to study its customers to better meet their needs.
