In this era of #MeToo, it’s a great time to celebrate women who never hold back—and who fearlessly imagine, create, develop, discover, and lead. The 2018 Connected World Women of M2M or as we now refer IoT (Internet of Things) award winners epitomize women’s strength, smarts, charisma, dedication, and staying power.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal last year, Microsoft, www.microsoft.com, founder Bill Gates compares trying to understand quantum computing to trying to read hieroglyphics.
From dashboards, to databases, to platforms, to SD cards, to wearable walkie-talkies, innovative products are coming to market faster than ever before and that is exactly why Connected World is pleased to announce the IoT Innovations Award winners for 2018.
Women have a unique perspective that can help push connected technologies, M2M, and the IoT (Internet of Things) forward—and the most successful ones will be recognized at an annual gala.
It’s no surprise that during the next several years, the number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and the amount of data these devices will generate will explode.
The cloud, edge, and fog are changing how businesses leverage the IoT (Internet of Things), but Michael Morton, chief technology officer and vice president of Dell Boomi, suggests taking a step back and identifying the business outcomes first.
Enterprises, individuals, governments, cities, and other entities have at least one thing in common in today’s connected world: they’re all looking for ways to leverage innovative technologies to improve life and business; but can this really be achieved without interoperability?
How can we improve interoperability? Perhaps the answer lies in the cloud-or, better yet, the fog. Chuck Byers, principal engineer and platform architect, Cisco Corporate Strategic Innovation Group, suggests fog computing, which was coined by Cisco, is having a significant impact on smart cities and it is changing interoperability.
The adage "work smarter not harder" applies to cities looking for ways to improve efficiencies, enhance public safety, boost livability, and support economic growth by adopting IoT (Internet of Things) solutions.
In an IoT (Internet of Things) connected world, a network is only as strong as its weakest link. This means security will never be off the agenda; it will always be a necessary topic of discussion for the industry, including all players participating in the IoT supply chain and end users.
Sensors will transform life and business in urban centers as more data collection changes human intelligence. By 2050, around 70% of the world's population is expected to live in cities, according to the United Nations, www.un.org, and urbanization isn't the only shift on the horizon for the world's cities. The IoT (Internet of Things) is increasingly allowing cities to offer the kind of high-quality lifestyle and vibrant economic climate that attracts residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

From catching poachers to monitoring forest loss, IoT technologies enable data-driven decisionmaking in conservation. In eastern Rwanda along the border of Tanzania in Africa, Akagera National Park is a large protected area named after the Akagera River, which flows along the park’s eastern boundary. Within the park are hundreds of species, including Africa’s big five: buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhinoceros.
