First it was Big Data and now it’s the Internet of Things; the science of data is becoming increasingly sexy, maybe not Victoria’s Secret sexy but it certainly get the juices flowing for business leaders in the know. Hot or not? Definitely hot. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Ajit Jaokar about his passion, data science, and the application of machine learning, deep learning and predictive analytics in IoT.

In the Internet of Things there are generally three classes of analytics performed: real-time analytics done of the fly alerting you to anomalies; predictive analytics performed as a post process yielding a prediction and confidence level and descriptive analytics that reports on past, present or future data with visualizations that often result in the biggest insights. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I discuss the differences in these types of analyses with Shepherd Shi, as well as the steps that are taken before and after.

Column-based versus row-based, SQL versus NoSQL and streaming versus batch are three of the most important dimensions to consider choosing your IoT database. But let’s get something clear, databases are two levels of indirection beyond what’s truly important: the IoT information you require. Databases support analytics support information. Having said that, the informed business manager on databases will ask the right questions and set the right priorities during ideation of the IoT product. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I speak with Nik Rouda who breaks down the data environments used in IoT 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.

To go beyond connectivity, the IoT Platform must abstract all components of the Internet of Things product or environment into a form that can be computed and interfaced with the app, model and analytics. I call this the software-defined product, or in the case of home automation, the software-defined home. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I discuss the IoT Platform with Jim Hunter and the importance of abstraction – from the metal to the cloud.

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.

Because of the technology and data available, the biggest and most interesting challenge in designing an IoT product is to make it feel more like a service or experience, than a piece of hardware. Only after you understand the customer and what the opportunities really are can product design begin. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Gordon Hui to get an uber designer’s perspective on how to find that ideal product experience and the business that must be developed to support it.

When starting down the path toward your IoT product, it’s tempting to jump into the tech and get started with your PoC… but don’t fall into that trap. Of course there are benefits to getting the minimally viable product out the door but these benefits don’t go away if you back up first and start with a business strategy and defined user experience – in fact they’re accelerated when you have a clear path from the start. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Erik Ljung about the importance of starting at the top when beginning your product design process.
