From beer to boxes, an unheralded name in IoT technology has quietly leveraged its expertise in process monitoring and management to compete in a world dominated by Google and IBM, as well as high-profile operational tech firms like GE and Siemens. The PI System is the foundation of OSIsoft’s offerings, a structured data lake for real-time information that can let businesses hunt for trends and potential cost savings down in the weeds of machine-generated data.

Online Trust Alliance spells out best practices for testing, purchasing, networking and updating IoT devices to make them and the enterprise more secure.
Splunk is introducing software that enables pulling in information from industrial IoT devices and analyzing it
Microsoft says it will spend US$5B over 4 years on IoT - perhaps on products, infrastructure or acquiring IoT vendors - but it's not clear yet where the money will go.
Not everybody in business IT seems like they’re having a great time at their job, but Aruba CTO Partha Narasimhan is an exception. He sat down with Network World at the company’s 2018 Atmosphere conference in Las Vegas to talk IoT, onboarding and more.
A robot called HoneyBot, designed by researchers at Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, can fool bad actors into believing they have compromised an IoT device and send alerts of the attack to hasten defensive response.
Tech companies of every stripe are staking their claim to the IoT, and networking vendors like Aruba are no exception. But to hear co-founder and president Keerti Melkote tell it, his company’s pitch might have a little more heat on it than others.
A chain of Ontario-based retirement homes is looking to add sensor bracelets to its Aruba Wi-Fi networks, internet of things devices that will track whether residents are starting to wander away from the facilities so staff can intercept them.
The market for IoT security products is set to grow sharply, as the general IoT market becomes ever more ubiquitous, according to a report released this month by Gartner Research.
The wildfire growth of IoT is arguably the most important trend happening in technology today, but the ease with which bad actors can exploit its manifold security vulnerabilities has been demonstrated many times in just the past couple of years.
There are plenty of new capabilities that IIoT adds to operational technology – including remote management and operational analytics – but the number-one value-add so far has been predictive maintenance. Combining machine learning and AI with the deep pool of data generated by the flood of new IoT devices offers the opportunity to better understand how systems work, interact and can be kept up and running.
The Industrial Internet of Things, or IIoT, connects machines and devices in industries such as transportation, power generation, and healthcare. The potential is high and so are the risks.
As the explosive growth of IoT continues, businesses, vendors and consumers all have to confront the issue that the world is more connected than ever before, with potentially gigantic consequences.
It may be time for the U.S. government to step in to coordinate security standards across all the players that participate in creating the internet of things, Frost & Sullivan says
While your enterprise Wi-Fi setup might not change beyond recognition in 2018, the next year is still going to bring some shifts. The basic technology should remain largely the same, but the way you manage it could be very different.
