IoT: A tale of four industries

Learn how IoT is transforming four industries – becoming the Internet of Everything (IoE) in healthcare and revolutionising consumer products, discrete manufacturing, and retail.

Managing IoT: The CIO’s greatest feat

The Internet of Things can deliver unprecedented process efficiency – and save a large organisation hundreds of millions of dollars a year. So who should lead the development of IoT and M2M technology within your organisation? Likely the CIO. Here’s why.  

Making (human) sense of sensors

All change begins with the ability to measure. With increasingly sophisticated sensors – soon to number in the trillions – we’ll be able to expand perception and measurement far beyond our natural human senses. But how much new sensor data do we need?

Creating business value from IoT data

The Internet of Things isn’t just about insight. It’s about actions and outcomes – both of which need business context to be effective. That’s why we built SAP S/4HANA. Learn how this in-memory ERP suite bridges the gap between business processes and IoT insights.

IoT in Discrete Manufacturing:
Set Up a Live Digital Business

Using IoT to create a live business operation around connected products has huge potential for discrete manufacturers. Here’s why.  

Siemens Creates Green IoT Devices for a Brighter Future

The Siemens way of making energy-efficient and high quality IoT devices gives the company a leading role in the green energy marketplace.

Can IoT Save the Paper and Packaging Industry?

While technology has made for tighter profit margins and shifting demands in the industry, there is vast potential for the Internet of Things.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

More than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. Not just smartphones and tablets, but almost anything with a sensor on it – coffee makers, cars, cattle, machines in production plants, jet engines, oil drills, wearable devices, and more. This network is called the Internet of Things (IoT). These “things” talk to each other, collect streaming data and insights, and can advise people about the best way to use them in real time.

IoT – and the machine-to-machine (M2M) technology behind it – is bringing a kind of “super visibility” to nearly every industry. Imagine utilities and telcos that can predict and prevent service outages, airlines that can remotely monitor and optimise plane performance, and healthcare organisations that can base treatment on real-time genome analysis. With IoT technologies and applications, the business possibilities are virtually endless.
