We have been using internet-connected car technologies for years, in ways that by now seem routine for many: they link to our smartphones, register real-time traffic alerts, stream music from the Internet, and offer emergency roadside assistance at the touch of a button.
Over the years, we have been implementing M2M and IoT solutions. In this article, we go through the distinctions and the pros and cons of both communication technologies. First, let us take a look at definitions.
Gartner predicts that by 2018, most business users and analysts will have access to self-service tools to prepare data for analysis as part of the shift to deploying modern BI platforms. Gartner defines Business Intelligence (BI) as an umbrella term that includes the applications, infrastructure and tools, and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information to improve and optimize decisions and performance. BI tools can be used to support operational and strategic decisions, laying out a great visual and statistical basis for them.
The IoT platforms are suites of components that enable deployment of applications that monitor and control connected devices. They remotely collect data from connected devices to manage all of them in one system.
This question is one of the hardest in web application development. And the reason for this is simple: applications are a solution to a unique challenge, which may require a particular methodology or a team of web app developers with specific expertise. It is easy to evaluate how much building the Twitter app costs, but building a new custom web app is a frontier that has not been explored yet. While web app development costs may vary, on average, a complete clone of a major social media app costs about $500K and takes nine months to assemble.
With several trillions of dollars up for grabs, competition in the IoT industry is steep and getting steeper every day. Big players are already knee-deep in the IoT; Cisco, IBM, GE, Google and Microsoft have launched their own IoT programs. In fact, Microsoft even released an IoT version of Windows 10 that is specifically built for developers working on IoT products. While much of the press-hype is focused on the consumer side of IoT (think Nest and Samsung’s Smart Appliance line) most analysts agree that substantial benefits will also be realized by industrial applications.
Using a PaaS is a proven way to decrease costs, speed the time to market and removes the burden of supporting a physical infrastructure if one wants to deploy a java app without worrying about computing resources, tracking licenses, cost of installation and configuration/administration of the software. Business owners and IT executives are increasingly looking for PaaS that will be the backbone of their java app deployment. However, there are many challenges on the way.
Technology keeps changing every day, and the cloud became a necessity for many enterprises. There are many reasons for this. In this article, we will look at how and why to convert Java desktop applications to the cloud.
It is important to address the fact that 80% of internet users have a smartphone. This number will keep growing with Google’s cheap smartphone programs, as well as with many cell phone companies giving away free smartphones with their contracts. Building a mobile strategy has become vital for growing a business in 2017.
