The Internet of Things (IoT) is the term used to describe the connection of network-capable devices to the Internet and other connected devices.
The equipment that makes up the IoT go far beyond the computers that were connected to form the consumer Internet. IoT devices include such diverse items as industrial machinery, home appliances, automobiles, and blood-sugar monitors.
Many complementary technologies work together to enable the Internet of Things. Databases and the teams that support them are an integral component of a viable IoT implementation. They are instrumental in the storage, processing, and presentation of the information gathered by networks of IoT devices.
Read the 11-page whitepaper “Is Your Business Ready for the Internet of Things?” to learn the elements required to construct an IoT implementation. We will also look at how the IoT enables automation in many areas of society and how businesses can use it to their advantage. Also, we will investigate the critical role of databases and their support teams.
This whitepaper describes the two flavors of the IoT, the components of the IoT, sensors and actuators with the IoT system, network challenges and considerations for IoT, technology and regulatory standards for IoT, intelligent analysis of artificial and machine learning in IoT, and intelligent action in IoT implementation. The whitepaper also presents software for the IoT, data collection, data storage, data processing and analysis, human-machine interfaces (HMIs), the impact of the IoT on database professionals, how the IoT impacts the business word, and maintaining the IoT and your IoT implementation.
