Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT - Internet of Things
or how small things
change our (corporate) life

The idea of seamless communication between people, processes and things has existed for some time, but it is only in recent years that the Internet of Things has emerged as one of the central technologies of the 21st century. Nowadays, it is no longer a challenge to connect everyday objects such as cars, kitchen appliances, audio equipment to the Internet.

This physical world now meets the digital world and the two cooperate. This is because the devices are able to collect and share data with minimal human involvement. This data (Big Data) can then be analyzed and evaluated using computing solutions.

Machine Learning and Analytics (ML)

Machine learning and analytics, as well as access to diverse and vast amounts of data stored in the cloud, enable companies to gain insights faster and easier. The emergence of these related technologies is pushing the boundaries of IoT, and the data generated by IoT is fueling these technologies.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Conversation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Conversation

Neural networks have enabled Natural Language Processing (NLP) to IoT devices (e.g. Alexa, Cortana, Siri, SAP Co-Pilot) and made them attractive, affordable and usable for private use.

But access to low-cost and low-power sensor technologies is also enabling more and more manufacturers to produce products for IoT technology.

Thanks to numerous networking protocols for the Internet, connecting sensors to the cloud and other things is made easier and ensures efficient data transfer. Last but not least, the increased availability of cloud platforms allows businesses and consumers to access the infrastructure they need to scale up without actually having to manage everything.

Industrial Internet of Things?

IIoT - What is the
Industrial Internet of Things?

The application of IoT technologies in the industrial sector, especially in connection with the instrumentation and control of sensors and devices, which are based on cloud technologies are referred to as IIoT (4th wave or Industry 4.0). It describes a new level of automation (e.g. machine-to-machine M2M communication).
