The promise of the Internet of Things is huge, but how can leaders extract real value from it? Four key areas can provide easy entry points to tap into the IoT, and quickly begin to realize value with IoT technologies.
Shifting trends in product ownership and management suggest that
companies must begin to create valuable experiences. As things learn
and adapt to their users, they can act like “agents” on behalf of users.

The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.

There is an exponential increase in connected devices that are producing data about our homes, health, cars, and everything in between. The Internet of things (IoT) is exploding into apps that allow users to see and interact with these devices. Watson can enable IoT apps to understand the meaning and intent of the users that interact with these connected devices. Check out this webcast to learn how the cognitive services from IBM Watson available on Bluemix can make IoT apps be intelligent, overcome complexity, and support discovery and decision making.
