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)

Before Bad Things Happen – Be Prepared
Providing a great user experience is always the goal, and the best way to achieve that is by having a well-thought-out digital business continuity strategy. You can’t always know what type of disruption you’ll face next, but you can be sure that there will be one. It may come in the form of a broken connection but, even more likely, the availability of the application or host. DNS active failover ensures real-time failover to healthy endpoints, allowing you to extend your business continuity solution to the user edge.

Organizations are at a strategic crossroads. According to IDC analysts,1
two-thirds of CEOs will
center their corporate strategies around digital transformation initiatives. The goal of digital
transformation is only partly to make existing functions more effective. The greater goal is to be
able to do new things and use existing data in new, better ways.
Yet, 72% of current IT spending2—and the focus of IT resources—is on maintaining existing
systems. This creates tension between what needs to be done today and what should be done
for the future.
Middle-tier applications, according to IDC,3
are the core of a digital transformation strategy
because they provide data integration, messaging, and application programming interface (API)
management. Middle-tier applications also provide a platform for application development and
management that can handle traditional enterprise applications and cloud-native, distributed

Your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Oftentimes, these applications span both personal and work-related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored. Prospective employees are asking about application usage policies before accepting a job.
As a business owner, you’re used to wearing several hats. However, you don’t always have the time or expertise needed for those various roles. So what do you do when you need help but don’t have the
resources to bring on a full-time team member? The answer could lie in temporary consulting.
If the role you’re struggling with most is in the information technology (IT) department, bring in an IT consultant to solve important technological problems and/or implement new systems. Hiring a temporary IT consultant to work on specific tasks can be more time
and cost efficient than hiring a full-time IT employee. Here’s how to find the right IT consultant.
Few travelers today will arrive at a hospitality venue without a mobile device. In fact, some 86% of us will carry two or more. Our expectations are changing. Wi-Fi is now the essential amenity we look for at a hotel. It’s a deal-breaker: no Wi-Fi, no return stay. In fact, both leisure and business travelers say that it’s more important to have Wi-Fi at a hotel, along with air-conditioning, than breakfast.
Many healthcare organizations are looking at mobility as a means to improve treatment paths and patient outcomes. To achieve these goals, you need a Wi-Fi solution with the strength and intelligence to support the demands of digitization and the Internet of Things.
IoT device capabilities are constantly evolving and enterprise adoption is increasing at a rapid pace. As adoption grows, these connected devices provide additional entry points for external threats, thus broadening the organizations' attack surface. The enterprise must now look for solutions to address an increasingly complex problem: how to detect, monitor and control unmanaged devices that are connecting to the network and may lack consistent security protocols, putting critical business data at risk.
Despite the business-transforming upsides of data from the Internet of things (IoT), there’s a downside: security. Porous networks and lax users offer tantalizing access for hackers. Although most security spending is at the enterprise level, a shift is needed to secure IoT applications and provide improved governance and accountability. Electronics companies must create secure environments that safely collect, consume, share and store data on their networks. But they also must go beyond devices and consumers to close holes to factory, ecosystem and partner networks.

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
Marketing as you know it will never be the same. There’s a fundamental shift in relationships between brands and customers—fueled by smartphones, social media, and today’s
always-on, always-connected mentality. Marketers have access
to more customer data (big data) than ever before. But the quantity of data only matters if you’re smart about using it—to power 1:1 customer journeys.
