Edge Compute Needs Unikernels and It Needs Them Now

Securing IoT (Internet of Things) is a known challenge. Device proliferation is exceeding at a rate that is hard to quantify. Almost every day we are starting to hear new stories about sensors attached to almost anything that’s worth measuring—which apparently is everything.

Automation and the Jobs of Tomorrow

It’s almost 2019, and the world isn’t the same as it used to be. Vehicles contribute to the driving experience, devices monitor patients’ health and send data to their caretakers and physicians in realtime, machines operate autonomously and warn owners when they’re on the fritz, and robots play a big role in helping retailers get holiday packages to their customers on time. It’s easy to see the benefits connected devices and IoT (Internet of Things) technologies offer society, but it’s hard not to wonder what the technology takeover will mean for the job market in certain industries. Will the IoT create more jobs for human workers than automation takes away?

The IoT Gives Support to Mental Health

The IoT (Internet of Things) is really growing. It is contributing the greater good. As one example, think about how the IoT is helping to create smarter cities. Smart cities contribute to a cleaner environment. They make it easier for people to get to work or school. And smart cities can support job creation and a healthy economy. IoT technology is also improving how we all get from point A to point B.

Retail and the Automation Revolution

As the 2018 holiday shopping season approaches, the retail sector will once again take center stage. Brick-and-mortar retailers haven’t had it easy in the past decade, as more and more consumers shift their shopping habits as a result of ecommerce. However, despite some predictions that brick and mortars are doomed to become mere memories of the days of old, many retailers continue to turn a profit in an ecommerce-dominated market. What’s the secret to their success? Many successful brick-and-mortar retailers aren’t just brick and mortars; they aggressively pursue omnichannel strategies that blend ecommerce with traditional commerce in a way that puts customers’ needs first.

Applying IoT to BI

BI, or business intelligence, is changing, as a result of the IoT (Internet of Things). Data is a new kind of currency in today’s connected world, and it seems like just about everything we do in life and business generates data and it’s not just humans that are generating data. We are seeing all kinds of connected machines and smart devices generate unfathomable amounts of information every minute of every day.

AI Data Predicts for the IoT

Advances in AI (artificial intelligence) is having a profound impact on the IoT (Internet of Things) and it’s one of the most exciting ways our world is changing today. It’s frequently listed as one of the top areas of growth and innovation. We are all witnessing a historical shift in how we view machines, how we rely on them to complete tasks, and how we derive value from AI-enabled insights.

Advanced Analytics in the Supply Chain

In today’s connected world, companies are looking for ways to do less with more. They’re looking to slash operating costs, enhance service, boost flexibility in the supply chain, improve forecast accuracy, reduce supply-chain disruptions, increase visibility, and reduce inventory, among other goals. The IoT (Internet of Things) is helping businesses acquire actionable information that can lead to a more customer-centric supply chain based on a more proactive business model.
