We’ve all heard it before: garbage in – garbage out. This is especially problematic with IoT data where dirty data, data that is well-formed but wrong, can cause a butterfly effect chain reaction, polluting the data lake, resulting in bad decisions and bad business. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with James Branigan about what bad data is, how to identify it, stop it and then deal with the aftermath.

They say data is the new oil. Well if that’s the case, then like oil, crude data must be refined and packaged to make it useful and consumable. If you believe, like I believe, that all incremental value from an Internet product comes from transforming its data into useful information, then external sources of data, when combined with internal data, can become very valuable, indeed. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with David Knight about third-party data markets and syndicates.

Business is all about creating value and then monetizing it, and it’s no different in IoT. For companies to succeed in IoT, both value creation and value monetization must be mastered. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I share with you three lessons from the ICIP Business course. The first, an overview of the value creation framework, that walks through the four types of value creation in IoT. The next lesson is on one of the five classes of business models used in IoT – the Service business model. And the third lesson is an overview of risk management – the business counterpart to cybersecurity. This episode is a lot shorter than last week’s but packs a big punch.

Every IoT product, system or environment I’ve worked on has pivoted. And I don’t mean slight pivots, I’m talking 180 degrees or more. Why? Because the Internet of Things is new. New to the product builder and new to their customers. Because of this newness and the planning fallacy, it’s important to take a highly iterative approach to development. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Jeff McGehee about agile development and how to use it most effectively when building a new IoT product.

It takes a lot, and I mean a lot, to get me to download yet another app on my phone, especially one that’s going to try to sell me something… but, I’m open to Retail-IoT tech. I’m not much of a physical shopper, probably because I find the whole shopping experience so dreary, but this so-called offline-online convergence within retail has piqued my interest. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Oleg Puzanov about proximity marketing and where it’s headed with IoT.

If you’ve been listening to my show for a while you know I’m a lover of IoT platforms. It just doesn’t make sense to create your own plumbing from scratch – especially since there are so many beauties to choose from that sport business models that are so agreeable early on. But what about open source platforms – are they ready yet for primetime? In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Hans Scharler about where open source platforms are today, and when it makes most sense to use them.

IoT platforms are commonly used to develop stand-alone IoT products, systems, environments but what do you do when you want to connect multiple IoT products? The outcome-based economy depends on it and the key lies in using platforms of platforms or common data models. In this episode of the IoT Show, I speak with Nigel Upton about the importance of the horizontal data model when choosing your IoT platform.

The “IoT Platform” is such an overloaded term that its meaning has been lost. Chipset manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, software vendors, consortia and system integrators all have their own definitions. But if you come at it from enough angles eventually a form takes shape and you realize it means what you want it to mean and what is important is not its definition but the context in which it’s used. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, Dr. Sean Lorenz and I go through the elusive IoT platform and why the business problem is always the place to start.

It’s a heck of a lot easier than it used to be but most IoT projects still involve custom system integration – the question now is how much. Although the definition of an IoT platform, or AEP, is not always clear, what is clear is that using a platform saves a lot of time and a lot of system integration work. There may be legitimate reasons to develop your own platform in house but by definition, this means you become a software company – big time. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Bryan Kester to get his take on what an IoT platform is, the technologies involved and a candid view on the strengths and weaknesses of IoT platforms today.

How much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Steve Stover about balancing the costs and the technology approaches to maximize your Internet of Things data value.

On the surface, building your own IoT cloud seems pretty straightforward, but brush away some of the fluff and you’ll find the non-trivial issues of data velocity, message processing, scalability, redundancy and robustness. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I discuss the IoT cloud with Dan Collins, its differences with the IT cloud and the issues to consider when building or buying.

What’s the IQ of your city? There are a few ways to raise it to become a smart city. The bottom-up approach starts with a few IoT pilots to see what sticks and what the operational implications are. The top-down approach looks at the city as a platform providing interconnectivity. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Miguel Gamiño, San Francisco’s CIO, about his approach to make his city the smartest of them all.

The technology of the software-defined product, containing the digital twin, is the most important technology in IoT – the most important because it’s directly related to creating value. Sometimes it can get a bit confusing so in this episode of the IoT Business Show, I share with you three lessons from the ICIP Technology course. The first, a simple example to demonstrate the software-defined product and digital twin. Then, an overview lesson on standards and protocols, and finally an overview lesson on IoT analytics and big data.

I’m sold. In fact, I’ve been sold since early 2014 when I first started digging into the emerging Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) market. I’m sold not because it’s cool tech – I’m sold because it's affordable. The price makes business sense for a wide range of IoT use cases – some we’re familiar with and others we haven’t even considered yet due to current cost structures. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Hardy Schmidbauer of the LoRa Alliance and Thomas Nicholls of Sigfox about what LPWA is and the different ways it’s sold.

There’s a symbiotic partnership between standards organizations, like the IETF and IEEE, and the non-profit alliances, groups, and IoT consortia. The IoT industry needs standards but sometimes the standards organizations, when left to their own devices, can be guilty of satisfying only the vendors’ needs who are on the committees or being too broad, satisfying everyone but producing nothing of value. The non-profit IoT consortia play a major role in driving requirements for these standards and their subsequent testing, certification, and marketing. The grey zone is when the consortia get into the standards game. There’s value in making “standards” of standards but it can also be detrimental to the industry at large when they are not made open to the public.

OK, I admit it, this is going to be a bit of a geekfest but application protocols are an important topic to understand if you want to understand how IoT works. Protocols are the lifeblood of an IoT system and as we are about to find out, there are a few different types to choose from – each with their own characteristics and infrastructure requirements.

Meet IoT’s three layers of protocols… the media layer, otherwise known as the physical layer or radio, the network layer and the application layer. Important because they make up the network stack that transports data from the sensor to the cloud. Important because they are standardized. In this episode of the IoT Business show, Michael Richardson delivers a masterclass on everything you need to know about IoT’s three networking layers.

Would you Like a Network with those Street Lights?

The IoT Business Show is brought to you by the Iot-Inc Certified IoT Professional (ICIP) online training & certification program: http://www.iot-inc.com/training


Wondering how IoT is being rolled out in cities? Look up… into the light. Streetlights are the perfect stepping stone to produce smart cities. Changing their bulbs to LEDs pay for themselves in 3-5 years but also present the opportunity to build out wireless mesh networks. These elevated networks allow more lighting control/efficiency and provide the foundation for other smart city services such as power and parking. In this episode of The IoT Business Show, I speak with Sterling Hughes about lessons learned in deploying Silversping’s networks in cities around the world. This is encore episode 4, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.

IP & IoT – It Just Makes Business Sense

The IoT Business Show is brought to you by the Iot-Inc Certified IoT Professional (ICIP) online training & certification program: http://www.iot-inc.com/training


IP rules the Internet, at least the Internet that connects people. Will it dominate the Internet of Things too? There are two endings to this story. In this episode of the IoT Business Show we discuss one such ending with Internet of Things expert, Joachim Lindborg and how his Swedish rationality takes him there. This is encore episode 1, of 4, which originally played in the IPv6 Show podcast.
