The Internet of Things is being transformed by IBM, Cisco

Posted on Tuesday, June 14 2016 @ 10:47:59 CEST by

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a simple idea being taken to a whole new level by the world’s technology innovation companies. An example of this is the latest initiative by IBM’s Watson IoT platform utilizing Cisco’s analytics capabilities which will allow businesses to analyse IoT data closer to the source. IBM and Cisco recently announced that they would collaborate further to accommodate companies operating with limited bandwidth capability.

This is an exciting development for people with IT jobs as this eases their daily tasks and streamlines data; the collaboration between the two companies will offer more insight into connected equipment. Cisco’s Connected Streaming Analytics Portfolio will make it possible for IBM’s Watson platform to be available along with edge analytics capabilities.

The cloud has been a pivotal innovation giving companies an opportunity to save on hardware and its costly maintenance; the continuing challenge is bandwidth availability which is what this initiative is working towards solving. Cisco’s vision entails using computational tasks at a point where a range of devices connect to a single network using nearby.

The two companies are further involving Bell Canada to provide connectivity over its 4G LTE Network as most IT applications are designed for cellular connectivity as opposed to Wi-Fi. Mike Flannagan, VP and General Manager for Cisco, wrote in a blog post: “The combination of these technical capabilities provides the flexibility of processing and analyzing data everywhere, at the edge and in the cloud, so it can be leveraged in time and context as the business needs to use it.”

The IBM Watson IoT offers innovative data management for companies thus features like streaming edge analytics allows a company to gage what they need to do in order to achieve results. The features in development aim to provide insight into how a company can be more productive while saving on costs and accumulate profit by providing automated tools connected to the cloud.

The term Internet of Things was coined by Kevin Ashton, a British Entrepreneur, in 1999 when he was working on Auto ID Labs. At its core, IoT refers to a global network of objects connect to a Radio Frequency ID (RFID).
