The IoT is more than just machines talking to each other. Consumers rely on it to make their lives more convenient. Industry leaders use the Internet of Things to sell products, automate workflows, and engage with consumers. As time goes on and the technology develops, you’ll see that the IoT is the reason for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)

When it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questions. In this paper we’ll explore the 5 things you should know about multi-CDN in order to determine if it might make sense for your business.

Die Zukunft für den Serviceaußendienst
Kevin Ashton, Technologieexperte aus Großbritannien, begründete am Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) das Auto-ID Lab, in dem Pionierarbeit auf dem Gebiet der RadioFrequency Identification (RFID) und anderen Sensoren geleistet wurde.
Im Zuge seiner Tätigkeit prägte Ashton im Jahr 1999 erstmals den Begriff des „Internet of Things”, kurz IoT, um die Vernetzung alltäglicher Gegenstände und Geräte sowie deren Übermittlung von Daten und Informationen zu beschreiben. Kevin Ashton gilt deshalb heute als „Vater” des IoT-Konzepts. Ende des Jahres 2015 war Kevin Ashton als Referent auf einem europäischen Kongress zum Thema Kundenservice geladen. Seine These: Das Servicemanagement im Außendienst sei die erste Branche, die mit dem Internet of Things eine grundlegende Transformation durchlaufe.
A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance. Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service delivery model.

Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.

Early in my career, I worked on the shop floor at Home Depot. As part of my management training, I rotated into an assistant store manager position, and the team I found myself leading was full of highly experienced master-tradespeople. I quickly realised that my lovely college degree was of zero use when customers wanted to know how to fix their leaky taps or install new light fixtures. No amount of friendliness could overcome the fact that I simply couldn’t answer those questions. Yet, our experienced associates were helping customers find exactly what they needed.
"Ninety percent of business executives believe the Internet of Things (IoT) is important to the future of their organization. And, as IoT is expected to generate a whopping 21% increase in corporate profits by 2022, it’s clear there’s value in adoption.

The role of analytics in managing, improving and ultimately transforming supply chains cannot be understated. But what about the analytics themselves? FICO’s Zahir Balaporia and renowned author Tom Davenport use the term “The Analytics Supply Chain” to reflect that the actual analytics themselves parallel supply chains, with inherent challenges and problems if things “get stuck.” Rethinking analytics in these terms can not only improve supply chain performance, but also any other business problems you seek to solve.
This article targets:
· Steps in the analytics supply chain and the vital role of data and analytic models
· How your predictions, recommendations and insights need to rely on similar attributes to finished manufactured products;
· Key questions to ask yourself in determining where you need to fix your analytics supply chain.

In the digital economy, data is becoming more interconnected every day. The volume of highly-connected data is growing rapidly, while also becoming a highly-valued corporate asset. By exploring relationships among people, processes and things, new business opportunities emerge, helping grow your business's competitive advantage.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
