IOT

There’s a paradigm shift taking place in how billions of people and devices across the globe connect, communicate and interact with each other – the 4th industrial revolution.

 

Steam powered the initial industrial revolution, followed by electricity and advances in computing in the 1980s which underpinned the 3rd.

 

The current revolution exploits technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Robotics and, of course, Internet of Things (IoT).

 

Keeping pace with the latest IoT developments is the key to securing significant competitive advantage across multiple industries and vertical markets.

 

Other significant benefits can include cost reduction, revenue generation, enhanced security and exploitable insights across your entire organization

IoT fuels transformational change across industries

 

IoT is impacting a wide range of industries, some notable examples include:

MANUFACTURING

improving product performance and serviceable life with reduced maintenance requirements. Informing reduced inventory holdings, agile production planning and scheduling, while improving the customer experience through the early warning of quality issues.

TRAVEL, TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS

– remote asset monitoring via telematics informing predictive maintenance, end-to-end shipment tracking, increased asset utilization and productivity. Improving service levels and regulatory compliance.

ENERGY & UTILITIES

– intelligent energy-efficient facilities with remote service monitoring, highly efficient grid monitoring, graphical user interfaces and visualization layers. Pro-active conditioned-based maintenance informed by remote asset monitoring.

CONNECTED HEALTHCARE

improving patient health outcomes and streamlining challenging communication practices, especially in remote locations. Preserving patient privacy and compliance with global health regulations.

Significant platforms in the IoT space

Microsoft – the Azure Internet of Things

 

The Azure Internet of Things consists of Microsoft-managed cloud services that connect, monitor, and control billions of IoT assets. Their IoT solutions consist of IoT devices and back-end services running in the cloud that communicate with each other.

Amazon – Amazon Web Services (AWS)

 

AWS IoT provides functionality from the edge to the cloud, which means you can build IoT solutions for virtually any scenario across a comprehensive range of devices. Because AWS IoT integrates with Artificial Intelligence (AI) services, devices can be made smarter with or without internet connectivity.

 

At 12th Wonder we’re happy to offer consultancy advice on Microsoft and Amazon solutions as well as other technologies relevant to your business vision and direction.

Our typical IoT engagement model

 

By its very nature, and the billions of moving parts associated with it, IoT solutions can mean very different things to different organizations in different situations. That’s why it’s important to thoroughly analyze and understand your specific IoT aspirations right out of the gate.

 

We achieve this with an initial fact-finding consultation intended to tease out the areas of your business where an IoT solution is likely to be of most benefit and deliver the best ROI for your organization.

 

From there we’re positioned to make highly targeted recommendation and move the piece on to a Proof of Concept (PoC) that’s highly relevant to your business goals and objectives.
