This Week in Internet of Things News

Successfully deploying IoT across enterprises poses quite a few challenges (and requires quite a few resources), but don’t let that hold you back. IIoT has become a household acronym, which means it’s time to see what works so you can elevate your use of this technology. Solving the puzzle of connected healthcare isn’t easy, but it will be worth the effort. Intel and other tech leaders are working to spur innovation in retail with the Open Retail Initiative. And learn how to get started with an IIoT framework in your factory during a March 14 webcast.

Making the Business Case to Create a Successful IoT Initiative

Deploying IoT in the enterprise isn’t quite as simple as it is for individuals. You can’t just buy a smart watch, put it on your wrist, and go for a run. Successful IoT deployments require significant resources; but on the upside, you can see tangible benefits early on. So if you’re willing to consider cross-department challenges, it may be worth your while.

Industrials Must Shift Gears on IIoT

How many times a day do you read an acronym and wonder what it means? Too often, right? But the IIoT probably isn’t one of those acronyms anymore, since the Industrial Internet of Things has become mainstream news. That doesn’t mean it’s time to get complacent, though. Instead, consider what current IIoT trends look like and where companies have seen success.

From Patient to Provider to Cloud: Moving Healthcare IoT From Idea to Reality

Solving a connect-the-dots puzzle doesn’t sound hard. It’s always the easiest one in the puzzle book, after all. But connecting the dots between ideas of the IoT in healthcare and reality isn’t always that simple. It requires a transformation of digital infrastructure and some literal connecting of devices, images, and other data. The results could be worth the challenge, though.

Open Standards: Starting a Journey to Unlock Data for Experiential Retail

Experiential retail is the name of the game these days. Interactive merchandising, automated checkouts, smart recommendations—they all make CX better. But here’s the thing: It’s powered by data, and there’s a lot of it. Intel aims to make that data more accessible by participating in the Open Retail Initiative, which could spur innovation within an open framework.
