ICYMI through November 12, 2018

Things are falling everywhere, including leaves, your favorite football team’s playoff chances, and the clock, which fell backward an hour on 11/4/18. Did you spend your extra hour raking leaves or alternately cheering and cursing your football team? Either way, remember we give that extra hour back again in the spring. And that extra hour allowed even more IoT news to slip by, so let’s catch up.


Sure, we make fun of Cleveland, but locals have to expect that when the river running through town catches fire twice (1952 and 1969). But Team NEO (North East Ohio) put together a complimentary IIoT Readiness Assessment for businesses that is worth checking out.

Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is now leveraging IoT to improve the patient experience.

Portsmouth, Va., and surrounding cities leveraged IoT sensors and a regional fiber ring to win the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge “Smart and Connected Development” award from Venture Smarter.

British Telecom (BT) has an IoT-specific site full of present and future IoT projects and ways for them to help integrators support IoT through wireless connections.

Speaking of Britain, Schneider Electric rolled out its EcoStruxure IT Expert (full of IoT) system in Europe. Read about some Schneider Electric IoT projects we covered earlier.

Going to CES19? Mobile IoT will be all over that show in early January.

Security and more

McAfee offers up some security advice for homeowners trying to control the ever-growing number of IoT devices sneaking into the house.

Intel admits the demand for new processors is hot, and that means, “the lower end of PC and the [Internet of Things] business is being constrained.” They promise to catch up soon.

Smart TVs being hacked are one thing, but now the NSA cautions us about “smart furniture” with IoT embedded to track workspace and equipment usage.

Few parts of the IoT world are as personal as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).

Take a moment to look at the new report published by Allied Market Research titled, “World Internet of Things (IoT) Healthcare Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014-2021.” Expected market value of IoMT in 2021? $136.8 billion. The biggest chunk is patient monitoring.

Yo, developers. Interested in putting .NET onto IoT devices? Check out Meadow: full-stack .NET IoT hardware.

Dynatrace (software intelligence) surveyed 800 CIOs across the globe and found that three-quarters of them are concerned that IoT performance problems will directly impact business operations. Title is “Overcoming the Complexity of Web-Scale IoT Applications: The Top 5 Challenges.” One potential issue? Customer demand for faster and better experiences could overrun IoT’s ability to deliver.
