Now for the hard part

Now for the hard part

August 02, 2016

The progress toward ubiquity Of the Internet of Things (IoT) can be described as consisting of three independent, converging movements: internet-enabled (edge) devices, aggregation of the data (cloud services), and analysis of the collected data. The first two movements have developed in predictable ways, given their states of realization before IoT arrived. The microcomputer industry has designed and manufactured ever smaller and cheaper devices, and the development tools to implement them. (Cimetrics has tracked this current closely for several years) Collection of the data (“in the cloud”) began later but has progressed quickly to a point where an IoT implementation has a variety of services available for the purpose. The remaining part is much the most difficult: understanding patterns in the data that make it comprehensible, and therefore useful. This task is by far the most difficult, both in length and in mental effort. An example of the effort that can be required to develop analytics to a useful level is Cimetrics' Analytika. This ongoing effort has taken over ten years, and continues as new insights are gained. The real value of the IoT will be realized when data models are mature enough to permit actionable decisions to be made.
