What is Internet of Things(IoT)

Over the last few years, there has been a lot of brouhaha about Internet of Things or Internet of Things as it is commonly referred to as. But, what is this phenomenon all about? Simply put, it means connecting any device to internet.

Internet of Things represents an ecosystem of well-connected devices and people and the way data and information is shared among them.

Imagine your computer automatically setting alarm clock gauging the weather condition and thus your travel time to your office. It can even arrange for a hot cup of tea when you wake up. Or it can adjust the room temperature according to the weather outside and playing some soulful music to give you company.Imagine that you are a car manufacturer; using Internet of Things you can easily get information on fastest selling spare products and automatically sending a query to the dealer for a quote.Hence, Internet of Things helps transform the day to day life into an intuitive inter-connected ecosystem of devices and humans.

Why Should You Choose the Internet of Things Framework?

Internet of Things has truly changed the face of technology and how it can be used in our daily routine. There are several advantages:

Better Communication

Internet of Things makes it easier for machines to communicate with one other (popularly known as M2M) hence leading to better efficiency and of course better transparency between systems

Automated Flow of Information

The flow of information or co-ordination is an automated one, often without any human intervention. The flow is also smooth and seamless and has better accuracy

Intuitive

Gone are the days when humans needed to initiate each and every step in the chain of commands given to a machine. With the Internet of Things, systems can speak to each other without any hassles and can gauge the next step as well as consequences of an action and alert the user

Cost Saving

Since, machines have taken over most of the decision making part and no human intervention required, the process becomes more cost saving, also because Internet of Things can help provide data around potential breakdowns

Comfort

Since, machines are doing most of the hard work, it also provides greater convenience and stress-free atmosphere to the user

Multifunctional

Internet of Things can be applied to all connected devices and systems, the concept can be applied to any device and any sector like healthcare, automobile, etc and to any business

Process of Assessing and Preparing System for Internet of Things

Implementing the Internet of Things framework involves the following key steps

  • Step 1

    Analyze and act on data

  • Step 2

    Transform Existing Business Process / Creating New Ones

  • Step 3

    Applying Augmented Decision Making

  • Step 4

    Design, Develop, Test , and Deploy Final Internet of Things Process

  • Step 5

    Integrating New Internet of Things Framework With the Existing One

Some of the key facts that one needs to bear in mind while implementing Internet of Things are

Security

Firms need to implement security framework before, during the process, and after the implementation. Firms implementing Internet of Things should ensure that there is no forced manipulation of devices through physical defects or bad control logic. This can cause severe damage to the Internet of Things framework. To combat this, firms need to consider installing security measures in cloud, protecting data integrity especially in public exposure, and secure placing of devices

Integrity

Firms need to protect any data leak or breach or improper usage of it

Scalability Factor

If more devices are added to the ecosystem, how will the existing system react? Firms need to provide for more devices to be added in future and the fact that existing system doesn’t break down

Interoperability

In larger firms, Internet of Things needs to be implemented over a myriad number of FTPs (file transfer protocols) thus resulting in communication breakdown between devices.

Added Intelligence and Intuition

Setting up Internet of Things framework doesn’t mean only connecting devices but what you do with the data that is generated. Hence, firms need to add machine learning and intelligence for enhanced predictive analysis
