Raspberry Pi was started at a time when the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) was picking up steam; since then, new uses for the product in the industrial sector have been supported by numerous industrial-application-specific releases of the product.
Anytime something new makes a monumental splash, there are a host of products and services that pop up around the game-changer. These products and services provide support, infrastructure and, at times, new uses to throngs of users.
The manufacturing industry is currently experiencing an increasing influence of the Internet of Things (IoT), aka Industry 4.0. The IoT has a positive impact on both production and business management processes.
According to recent statistics, properly set and documented requirements, sufficient budgeting, healthy team management, ample testing and robust development tools are among key factors that contribute to avoiding software project failure. While developers cannot influence budgeting, they can certainly choose efficient tools that will increase team performance and produce a high-quality solution.
Although the Internet of Things is quite a newish phenomenon in manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and other industry and service domains, it has gained significant magnitude and power. Indeed, it keeps winning businesses, which has resulted in its ever-growing market value. It totaled $917.2 billion in 2016, and now it shows a tremendous growth rate: 23% in 2016 compared to the previous year. Experts predict it to almost double by 2019, which will be $1710.4 billion.
Along with the rapid evolvement of various portable electronic devices, smart home appliances and technological equipment, the internet of things keeps gaining critical importance and significant control. Because of its value and a powerful influence on our way of life, it has even been nicknamed the Next Industrial Revolution. Indeed, our habits and behavior have changed as the internet’s ubiquitous presence in day-to-day operations has simplified them tremendously. If this trend continues, what will be the internet of things in 2020?
When choosing a cloud platform, business owners and decision makers often look only at the cost, while neglecting many small but essential differences between cloud platforms that may be vital when choosing the best systems for your business. In this article, we go through the three biggest cloud platforms — AWS, Azure and Google Cloud — to see their pros and cons.
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.
In Agile software development, continuous and seamless build integration is a requisite criterion for a quality application. Unlike the traditional waterfall development approach, the Agile stipulates that a mature piece of code is developed and delivered at every iteration. This necessitated the practice of ongoing code integration in software engineering. First applied in Extreme Programming, it keeps gaining traction and has triggered the nascence of a number of popular tools in agile software development, in particular, those for continuous integration (CI), that help development teams merge their results.
