  • Most of these data breaches were the cause of poor internal security practices.
  • Hackers now are not only limited to your traditional PC threat, with the development of technology today, these threats are now available towards Internet of Things (IoT).
  • Many of these devices still lack security features, which is a dangerous thought for the future.
  • We are probably looking at more knowledge in the field of app security and testing, in order to combat cybercrimes through apps.
  • From whatever brand your device was purchased from, most brands will come with warranties and a security team.

  • This intelligent design, often – and fondly – referred to as the ‘Internet of Things’, is a way to semi-automate everything from our homes to our workplaces to all kinds of fun and functional activities in between.
  • SMS may connect medical professionals in their quest for quicker and more accurate diagnoses, but there are also real-world applications for everyday use as well; there are already pill boxes that will text you a reminder if you forget to take your daily dose, and a clever wearable gadget could…
  • Smart locks with electronic sensors can be activated – or deactivated, should your child arrive home to an empty house and find themselves unable to remember the entry code – by text, and should a break-in occur, emergency services and other chosen parties will get an SMS update as well….
  • A network of wireless sensors placed around the home and even worn on the person can track, log, and transmit a person’s daily activities and alert the proper authorities if there’s a heat flare (fire), lack of regular activity (sudden illness or a fall), or even a fever or elevated…
  • Experts say that there may be as many as 30 billion devices in the collective Internet of Things by the year 2020 – a huge web of connected devices that work in concert to make our lives bigger, better, and more efficient.

  • UX is short for User Experience Design, and it can be defined as the branch of design that creates easy-to-use and delightful products that focus on the user’s needs.
  • You can think of UX as another tool in your Product Management belt to help you create the best possible product: one that truly solves the user’s needs and reduces the user frustration that is so common in the software world today.
  • Keep in mind that UX is a comprehensive discipline and it can also help you design user experiences related to non-software areas of you product, such as packaging, buying experience, store experience (think Apple store), support experience, etc.
  • UX brings to the table teams of trained professionals whose main goal is to design software that is focused on the user as opposed to business requirements or the will of the Engineering team.
  • Design researchers can perform stakeholder interviews, heuristic evaluations of existing software, contextual inquiries to see the users “acting in the wild”, Kano studies, affinity diagrams and many other techniques to get to the bottom of the user’s pain.

  • As automation, artificial intelligence, and cognitive technologies gain traction, companies may need to reinvent worker roles, assigning some to humans, others to machines, and still others to a hybrid model in which technology augments human performance.
  • Most respondents (77 percent) said they will either retrain people to use new technology or will redesign jobs to better take advantage of human skills.3 Recent Deloitte UK research suggests that despite inroads by digital and smart technologies in the workplace, essential “human” skills will remain important for the foreseeable future.4…
  • As companies transition from a traditional to an augmented workforce model, some may struggle to categorize and describe work in a way that connects it to AI, robotic process automation (RPA), and cognitive.
  • Being “fluent” in your company’s technologies means understanding critical systems—their capabilities and adjacencies, their strategic and operational value, and the particular possibilities they enable.6 In the context of workforce transformation, workers who possess an in-depth understanding of automation and the specific technologies that enable it will likely be able to…
  • However, companies planning to build an augmented workforce cannot assume that workers will be sufficiently fluent to adapt quickly to new technologies and roles.

  • But no CIO can ignore the considerable business opportunities those technology-based advances present: lower costs; more efficient supply chains; more secure networks and data stores; more dynamic and reliable products; more personalized customer service; and—if CIOs and their teams get it right—more abundant, loyal customers.
  • IDC predicted in 2014 that by 2020, CDOs would “supplant” CIOs at 60% of global companies “for the delivery of IT-enabled products and digital services.”
  • Forrester Research predicts that the CDO will fade into obsolescence within five years as “digital transformation” at each company broadens beyond a handful of special initiatives to become the core, revenue-generating business—at which point CIOs will assume control of the digital strategy, working with the CEO and other C-level peers…
  • As the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, advanced data analytics, and other cutting-edge technologies move into the enterprise mainstream, CIOs have better tools to help take their companies into adjacent industries—even to the point where they may have to cannibalize parts of their own business model.
  • “Those kinds of industry intersection points are going to generate the next generation of business opportunities,” says Sunil Kanchi, CIO of digital technology service provider UST Global, which recently worked with a healthcare company on an IoT device that crosses into the auto industry.

  • There are numerous factors at play including increased standardization at the protocol level, continued gains in cloud computing, the availability of several low-cost, wide-area wireless connectivity options such as LTE-M, NB-IoT, and LoRa, and a plethora of inexpensive and diminutive sensors that can be embedded into nearly anything.
  • At their booth in CES, OCF demonstrated a fully interactive Smart Home concept with connected refrigerators, locks, HVAC units, alarm systems, and other components from various vendors including Samsung and LG.
  • Devices that are OCF certified are guaranteed to be interoperable and seamlessly connect to the network – enabling consumers to quickly assemble an integrated smart home out of various manufacturer’s products.
  • Greenwave Systems
    – Greenwave Systems is a global IoT company that provides managed technology products and services to mobile carriers, telecommunications companies, utilities, and other service providers.
  • Taoglas
    – Taoglas is a global leader in the area of base station, external, and embedded antenna solutions for cellular (2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G), LPWAN (LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M, NB-IoT), GPS/GNSS, and short-range (Bluetooth, WiFi, Zigbee).
