The recent surge in the adoption of Internet of Things across industries has collected gargantuan volumes of data from different devices and machines. The wide variety of sensors installed and capturing a plethora of parameters at every microsecond level has opened up new avenues to improve business, customer experience and product and device features. The initial experiments have seen tangible success and the future looks very promising. IoT veterans have envisioned radical enhancements to industrial and consumer segments. The ideas we fancied in the sci-fi movies over the last decade are soon bound to become a reality. To accelerate the process we have almost everything in place, like a robust infrastructure to store and process data, a wide range of sensors to capture data across every possible dimension of the machine, protocols to send and receive data and many more. But we essentially miss out an extremely big piece from the picture i.e. how to make sense of the data.
Digging deeper into the IoT stack is split into 2 parts (Part 1 & Part 2) to reduce the length of the article. References and links for continuation will be provided throughout the article.
Digging deeper into the IoT stack [Part 1]
In the previous article, I had detailed the key differences among M2M, IoT and IoE. The scope of today’s article would be to explore the IoT/IoE stack in more detail by understanding its core components. Read more “Digging deeper into the IoT stack [Part 1]”
Technology is booming at a tremendous pace. Possibly more than what we have ever imagined. In this rapidly changing environment, all of us (enthusiasts and passive observers) have adapted to the technology boom. We all have been leveraging technology in some way or the other and today it is an indispensable part of our life. Try to roll back your memories 10 years back, smartphone was a buzzword and none of us really cared as it might not have added any value to our daily work, e-commerce in India was a fancy concept (few players were trying to experiment), big data was like greek and latin, Virtual reality was fancy, social networking was niche, micro blogging was only for celebs and geeks and so on.

Demystifying Machine to Machine Data (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Everything (IoE)
Along with the Big Data & Analytics boom, few other topics have also gained a lot of traction and seems to be very positive in becoming the next disruptive trend in the market. You might have already heard about most of them, viz Machine to Machine Data (M2M), Industrial Internet, Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Everything (IoE), Web of Things (WoT) , Programmable Web and the list goes on.
