We are going to need the IoT (Internet of Things) to help solve the problems that are facing agriculture and the future of food. There is not a person on the planet that doesn’t understand the importance of food, ag, and farming. Couple these facts with people living longer than ever, and we just keep having babies and you have a pot ready to boil over.
The agriculture industry is one of the most important and perhaps impactful industries in the world and Micorosoft Azure is already planting the seeds sensing the needs for a more connected future in the IoT (Internet of Things).
Agriculture and the future of food is going through a transformation that is being driven by the IoT (Internet of Things). IoT-smart sensing solutions in agriculture are now more than just crop monitoring. Today we are hearing a lot about sensors being used in vineyards and other situations to monitor water use, for instance, but sensors are being used for many other reasons in agriculture. Smart farming technology has been on the rise for more than a decade.
While the IoT (Internet of Things) offers great potential, it also demands that companies make a greater commitment to security to fend off cyber criminals even if that means focusing more attention on advancements in computing power. Connected devices and the IoT offers such immense potential, but they’re not inherently good, just like they’re not inherently bad.
IoT security. For this column I really want to talk about how IoT security impacts the manufacturing industry since that is what the main feature here really addresses as well. And as you will see our Website is focusing more on taking a closer look at the content in a particular area and drilling down even deeper to help you understand how it will impact your bottomline in the year ahead when looking at bigger solutions such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, big data, data intelligence, Industry 4.0, machine learning, virtual reality, sensors, and cybersecurity.
I just spent two days learning about SAP Leonardo. Is it a software tool? Is it a technology? Is it a service? I would call it a prolific way of interacting people and connecting technologies, and all of these so-called things we talk about every day to create unprecedented business value. Let’s be honest, all of this next-wave thinking can be nebulous at best, if the right elements are not implemented. If businesses and enterprises are to be truly successful, business processes must data transparent, proactive, and realtime.
