Internet of Things

The McKinsey Global Institute has gone through a study to highlight a list of startups in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT) which would be primed to succeed this year. One of them is Dragos. It works in the field of industrial cyber security. Another is Fog Horn, which provides real time machine learning and business analytics support to IoT application areas in industry and commerce. The interestingly- named IoTium helps in creating secure connections between cloud- based applications, legacy onsite systems and NaaS (Network as a Security). helps in large scale data warehousing using its SQL database on machine inputs. The others identified here include Armis Security, Drayson Technologies, Element Analytics, GEM, Influx Data, Karamba Security, Machine Metrics, Magic Cube, Myriota, Particle, Samsara, SCADAfence, Sequoia DB, Sight Machine, SWIM.AI, Tulip, Tuya Smart, Splice Machine, VDOO, Uptake and Xage Security.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is of course one of the hottest areas of business that several companies are grappling with right now. But before any company plunges headlong into the technology, a few trends need to be understood. First of all, companies need to start off with products or systems they already either sell or produce. Business research conducted by McKinsey across eleven industries in China, Canada, USA and Germany reveals that for most top executives, optimizing the existing service operations is of key concern. This is in stark contrast to a strategy applied by many newcomers of trying to cater purely to the emerging market needs. The entire learning curve has to be aced using multiple use cases. The business processes may need some sort of tweaking to be able to leverage the available opportunities.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has helped curate what is the intelligent built environment. This has led to the growth of the prop-tech scenario. This includes several advantages, the first being the prospering of smart cities. Sensors are a key part of this infrastructure of connected devices. Smart commercials are also being propped up by IoT aided devices. Amazon does proactive digital marketing across its network of connected devices for its Go store, as it did in Seattle. Retail stores are doing this using a network of sensors. The third major use is via smart residential areas. Navigation controls are being used in such properties. The French company REIT via its Gecina device is one of the foremost movers in this segment.

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) has already had a tremendous impact in the world of retail, which it is quietly revolutionizing. By the year 2025, IoT in retail could be worth US$ 94 billion according to business intelligence provided by GrandView Research. One such trend is that due to the use of Amazon Go and Zippin, plus initiatives by startups to replace cashiers with cameras, the days of the cashiers seem numbered. IoT is also helping retail outlets in better management of the inventory leading to reduced shrinkage and the supply chain getting streamlined. Beacons are helping the sales process through the use of Bluetooth devices that send event invites or discount coupons to nearby smartphones which have the relevant apps downloaded. While online retail is taking away a chunk of the traditional retail space, ambient commerce is thriving. This is the marriage of the two by combining AI technology and sensors in a physical store setting. Consumer IoT devices have gotten better as can be inferred from the Mozilla Foundation’s list. In- car retail is another development set to come up, especially with the rise of autonomous vehicles.
