Re: IoT Worldwide
@maryam It's almost like everyone is in on the gag. Wild predictions are made year after year. Predictions are made and we don't seem to look back on how data was gathered. It's all very interesting.

Re: IoT Worldwide
Michelle great so many forecast reports are never verified for the results they predicted. Considering the costs of those reports they should have some measure of accuracy. .

Re: IoT Worldwide
@Joe and we keep reading the annual predictions. Has anyone gone back to older reports to see if any predictions were close?

Re: IoT Worldwide
@freehe: Nobody -- not Gartner, not IDC, not Cisco, NOBODY -- knows what's actually going on in the IoT market other than it's big and is going to continue to get bigger for the near future.

Re: Government
@freehe: To be fair, GSMA's guidelines (as with many other such entities) are really just a marketing tool for the organization.  They're voluminous and obtuse and work primarily as a way to invite companies to get GSMA-audited -- and then, if they pass the audit, those companies are allowed to say that they passed the audit and get GSMA's seal of approval.  None of this is free, of course.

Re: IoT Security Guidelines
This is why Bruce Schneier is pushing for consumer-IoT security legislation/regulation -- because the cost is so high but the individual benefit to manufacturers is so low.  Consumers don't care (and, indeed, won't even notice) if most of their consumer IoT devices are compromised as part of a botnet because the devices will still perform substantially the same.  Unlike with most other things in the free market, there is virtually zero incentive for somebody to "go first" here.

Re: IoT Security Guidelines
In my experience, NIST gives not two brass farthings for actual security and instead is a research tool for every other government agency to use to increase its own power.  The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is something, but is woefully inadequate when it comes to post-initial breach security measures -- but still has the force of pseudo-law anyway because the SEC, CFTC, and FTC (inter alia) get to use it to laud over all the organizations they regulate and seek enforcement actions against (not to mention government contractors and subcontractors).

InfoSec regulatory compliance is a joke.  Here in MA, for instance, some of the state "security" regulations are actually counter to best security practices.

So what's a CISO, CPO, or CCO to do?

@Ariella: Yeah, but it's Huawei -- so don't anticipate those having much bearing here stateside.  ;)

In an industry where production yield and efficiency are tantamount to success, quickly identifying and correcting defects in the manufacturing process is critical. The customers of Optimal+ operate in production environments where errors related to yield and efficiency measurements can lead to losses of millions of dollars per year within a single plant. By implementing Vertica, Optimal+ is able to speed up analytical insights, combine data from different productions processes and gain visibility across the whole supply chain – leading to improved yield, quality and productivity for semiconductor and electronics manufacturers.

Join Alon Malki, Chief Architect at Optimal+, and Jeff Healey, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Vertica, to hear how advanced analytics and manufacturing intelligence can drive success in Industrial IoT. On this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Why HPE Vertica Analytics Platform is purpose built for IoT data
  • The challenges Optimal+ faced when developing a solution for IoT analytics
  • How Optimal+ leverages HPE Vertica to create an ideal big data architecture
