IoT Evolution World Week in Review: Dell, Black Hat and IoT Awards

By Ken Briodagh July 29, 2017

Welcome to the IoT Evolution Week in Review, my friends. This week, it’s a smorgasbord of IIoT, IoT Awards, Security testing at Black Hat and more in this IoT Evolution Week in Review Let’s get into it, shall we?

In our lead story, Dell has released a new initiative designed to help new customers across the globe, and its own manufacturing facilities, to future proof businesses through embracing IoT technology. These customers span a broad range of industries, from building and industrial automation to video surveillance and security, and include global automation technology provider Emerson; energy management software provider Talisen Technologies; video surveillance experts Innodep; and ICT research and innovation organization TSSG. In addition, Dell said it is deploying its Edge Gateways across several manufacturing facilities after seeing productivity improvements during recent proof of concepts in Brazil.

In a great guest post this week, our newest Correspondent Arti Loftus wrote about how innovators in the world of IoT security gathered and compared notes at a roundtable as part of the always awesome Telecom Exchange (TEX) NYC event, produced by Jaymie Scotto Associates (JSA).

And now, the news: At the Black Hat USA 2017 conference in Las Vegas, a team of New York University researchers will disclose vulnerabilities in a component that combined with publicly available information provide sufficient information to model an advanced, persistent threat to the electrical grid.

Zipit, a provider of business and technology solutions for the Internet of Things, announced recently that the Zipit IoT Platform has been awarded a 2017 IoT Security Excellence Award from IoT Evolution magazine.

IoTevolutionworld.com and Crossfire Media, which is a division of Crossfire Consulting, announced the latest companies to win an IoT Evolution Business Impact Award at the IoT Evolution Conference and Expo that was held last week.

We’ve just concluded the IoT Evolution Expo at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and it’s been an incredible event. As we wrapped up, the editors of IoT Evolution World announced the winners of the Best in Show awards.

On the IoT Time Podcast, I sat down with David Bairstow, VP, Product Management at SkyHook, to talk about location services in IoT.

Over the last few years, I have seen some major trends forming across nearly every vertical in the consumer and industrial spaces, and these trends looked like they were pointing toward a future where the IoT would indeed be improving the lives and living conditions of people all over the world, and so I decided to begin writing a book in order to look for patterns in those trends. That book, published recently, is called “IoT Time: Evolving Trends in the Internet of Things.

There’s plenty more to read, listen to and watch, so visit us on IoT Evolution World for all the IoT news, my friends. Now is the time to put into your calendar the next IoT Evolution Expo, to be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Also, please get in touch with us when you have stories. As always, if you have questions, comments, complaints or compliments, please send them to me, editorial director Ken Briodagh at kbriodagh@tmcnet.com or on Twitter @KenBriodagh.
