In this era of cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), firms are testing new product offerings that combine elements of content, software, services, and hardware together. Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing. Download this white paper to learn the eight subscription billing solution providers that matter most and how they stack up.
Für das Internet der Dinge müssen Sie das gesamte Netzwerk sichern (anstatt ein löchriges Netzwerk aufzubauen) Einige Initiativen zur digitalen Transformation konzentrieren sich darauf, die Art zu ändern, wie Mitarbeiter, Kunden, Partner – selbst unbelebte Objekte – mit ihrer technologischen Umgebung interagieren.
For today’s service providers and enterprises, bandwidth demands continue to increase and evolve. The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as smart homes, smart cities, connected cars, and connected medical devices, is forcing organizations to change existing business models and to build more cost-effective networks.
By creating a connected field service ecosystem, organizations can increase their response time, reduce mean time-to-resolution and eventually, power a more predictive service model. This will enable a new level of field service productivity and cost-savings from increased efficiencies. Organizations will also be able to provide exceptional customer experiences consistently.
Customer disruption and asset downtime will be minimized, and organizations will be able to empower their field service resources with insight into the issue before they arrive at the customer site. All thanks to a unified field service and IoT strategy.
If you’re looking to improve sales performance, optimize ecommerce, implement marketing automation, expand social media, deliver better customer service, or utilize accurate Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) – it’s all Oracle.
And, the icing on the cake? All of these solutions are integrated, but modular. We offer a breadth of solutions that you can not only buy individually, but can also easily integrate with existing or additional solutions as your business needs grow.

What the Internet of Things means for consumer privacy discusses the findings of an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) research programme, sponsored by ForgeRock, that explores the privacy
concerns and priorities of global consumers stemming from the Internet of Things (IoT) and related technologies.
Semiconductors run and connect today’s technology-driven world, powering all the electronic systems and products around us. Critical to communication, entertainment, work, medical diagnoses, travel, socializing, and making new discoveries, these specialized chips are ubiquitous. And chip designs grow ever more sophisticated in order to power new generations of devices, computers, the Internet, and the cloud. To enable new applications and use cases – like the Internet of Things – semiconductor vendors have continually pushed the boundaries of their designs to accommodate new fabrication processes that make chips smaller, more power efficient (to make personal devices last longer), and able to pack more gates into smaller dies (to make them more powerful).
Many Industrial IoT operations look at energy reduction and efficiency to save money, but Schneider Electric looks at the looming challenge of energy demand outstripping production. Learn what the analysts think in the 451 Research report.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) stands to benefit a number of key public sector subverticals, particularly public safety, because it will be leveraged to enhance real-time situational awareness, improve response times and safety, function as a force multiplier, help minimize operational expenditures, and facilitate evidence-based operations and real-time safety decisions.
The following questions were posed by Cisco to Dr. Alison Brooks, research director, on behalf of Cisco's customers.
Die Application Economy hat Unternehmen zu Umstellungen gezwungen. Unternehmen machen ausgewählte Daten und Anwendungen für Entwickler, Partner, Mobile Devices, die Cloud und das Internet of Things (IoT) zugänglich, um neue Wachstumschancen wahrzunehmen. Im Zuge dieser Umstellungen zeigte sich, dass Legacy-Daten in der Application Economy von Nutzen sein können, und zwar in einem solchen Ausmaß, dass sich durch die neue Art der Verwendung dieser Daten neue Umsatzchancen ergeben.
To keep up with sweeping global economic and societal changes, public services organizations are undergoing significant technology-driven transformation. Aging populations, rapid urbanization, political instability, concerns about sustainability and resiliency, and changing worker and resident expectations are driving public services organizations to radically improve operations and service delivery. At the core of this transformation is the ability to collect and process vast amounts of data to help to improve outcomes and services. One way to generate this data is through the Internet of Things (IoT) — which IDC defines as a network of networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity. The IoT is a transformational technology that can reshape the public sector, enabling improved outcomes and new services such as remote patient monitoring, advanced traffic solutions and predictive policing.
In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.
Consumer industries are facing once in a lifetime changes in the way they engage and interact with their customers and consumers. Whether consumer products, retail, or wholesale, there are two broadly unifying trends. First, consumers have both heightened influence and increased expectations. Second, several largely untapped digital technologies have the potential to enable new capabilities to better satisfy customer needs. For the key consumer industries of agribusiness, consumer products, life sciences, retail, and wholesale, the Internet of Things (IoT) will enable many new opportunities. These industries have a shared goal and challenge: to be able to create and offer engaging end consumer and/or customer experiences at scale. Part of the way that companies will achieve this goal and respond to this challenge is by developing digital transformation (DX) strategies. Such strategies enable new and potentially disruptive capabilities with a broad range of technologies.
The digital transformation (DX) of industries is well under way — a transformation that is enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT allows organizations to reinvent existing industry processes, augment how they engage with their customers, and accelerate the speed at which they deliver their products and services. This white paper looks at how these digital strategies facilitated by the IoT are reshaping those industry segments that are both asset rich and focused on services rather than products. The paper then explores IoT scenarios that hold great promise and how companies are approaching investment to optimize business outcomes.
Cybercrime is more sophisticated and dangerous than ever before, and the scope of newly emerging threats is unprecedented.
At the same time, the growing number and diversity of endpoints in the enterprise is expanding the network edge to the point of disappearing. Both these trends will continue with ongoing bring your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives and explode with the emerging Internet of Things (IoT).
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption.
This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
