The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists from CEOs on down – including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.




@ThingsExpo Power Panel | The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important?
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.


Worry Is Not a Business Plan
You are not alone

Whether you talk to folks on Wall St. or Main St., you find a common theme: everyone is worried about the economy.

Unbeknownst to businesses, a storm may be looming right under their own roof, especially for small businesses where resources are constantly limited and reserves are low or non-existent. It is so easy to get distracted, inundated or even derailed with worry.

However, speaking as a small business CEO, I have news for you: You can't afford to worry.

Imagine yourself as the captain of a row-boat. You plot the right navigation course, check for the weather and plan for all that can be planned. Then you keep all your staff rowing in sync, encouraging and guiding them around every turn, always focused on reaching the target destination. You make the row boat the best that it can be. However, throughout this journey, one fact remains: You control the row boat, but you don't control the waves.

While it is understandable to be concerned, it is also important to not let the "worry" take over the business operation. Since you can't control the waves, worrying about them will not have any positive outcome. Worry is negative energy with severe paralyzing effects (picture a deer in headlights).  It slows creativity down, locks you in status quo and reduces the possibility of new maneuvers, especially any move that remotely has any risk associated with it. Worry is physically draining and makes you feel helpless psychologically.

The fact is that in a bad economy, the economic waves are no longer carrying you. They are clashing with you head on, and this is exactly when you need to be nimble, try new routes, be stronger, work harder and smarter than you ever did, so you can overcome the environment. All of which are negated by worrying.

Make the environment work for you
Viewed in the right light, every problem is an opportunity. In this environment, there are so many businesses that either due to their size, or lack of market awareness, are not able to make adjustments to their direction. Your agility and ability to adapt will be your competitive advantage. Plot a direction that employs the environment to work for you, not against you. As a first step, start your course correcting actions by itemizing your concerns and creating a list of what you can do better.
When times are tough, it is always good to revisit the basics. Itemize all your areas of concern and categorize them based on possible actions. Almost all of the items in your list will fall into one of the following categories. I have taken the liberty of defining an action for each:

Category Your Actions
Items I have absolutely no control over If possible, devise a workaround, otherwise, accept as a fact of life and adjust to its existence. This will become your worry-not list.
Items I have some control over, but may drain my resources Do a quick analysis of whether the effort would be worth the reward. If so, implement a quick head-on plan to create a competitive advantage for yourself. Remember others may not be able to react as quickly as you.
Items I have control over This is where you will focus the most. Divide into:
  1. It is necessary to continue as is, and no correction needed. The famous "If it ain't broken don't fix it" approach.
  2. May be able to improve our approach and execution.
  3. A unique opportunity to beat status quo and create a new approach.
  4. I MUST change, otherwise, I will have a head on crash.

By putting aside items in your worry-not list, you now have more focus, more time and more energy to dedicate to the items you can control. Prioritize these items and work on them in order of priority. Employ all the possible tools at your service to execute those as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. The previous blog posts discuss team building, automation and other ways to increase efficiency and reduce costs at the same time; you may want to visit them.

Remember, every hour you delay on making this economy work for you, is an hour of lost business opportunity and squandered competitive advantage.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
