Aeris Releases Guide to the Internet of Things


According to a recent announcement, Aeris, an Internet of Things (IoT) technology company, has published the third edition of its IoT book, “The Definitive Guide: The Internet of Things for Business,” by IoT industry expert Syed Zaeem Hosain, founder and CTO, Aeris.

With a foreword written by Carrie MacGillivray, Group VP and global IoT lead, IDC, the book addresses the need for a broad, yet comprehensive guide that enables enterprises, consumers and governments to navigate potential drawbacks and gain benefits from IoT opportunities. It was written as a primer for business executives and outlines the steps necessary to embrace IoT without the need for an advanced technical background. Hosain published the first edition in November 2015 and second edition in August 2016.

New and updated chapters in the third edition include:

  • What is the Internet of Things?
  • The Future of Platforms
  • IoT Connectivity: Types and Choices
  • Connectivity Management Platforms
  • IoT Sensors and Data Collection
  • Security, Privacy, and the Internet of Things
  • IoT Use Cases (renewable solar energy, automotive/fleet management, healthcare, smart cities and financial/insurance)
  • The Future of the Internet of Things

Hosain has nearly 40 years of experience in the semiconductor, telecommunications and computer industries and has served in leadership positions for several industry associations and technical standards bodies. He currently serves as chairman of the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the largest and fastest growing trade organization serving the IoT industry with more than 25,000 members worldwide and covering 24 different vertical market sectors.

Hosain, on Twitter @AerisCTO, will host a live chat on Twitter at 9:00 a.m. PDT on Tuesday, August 28, and share his IoT insights and answer questions about the book. Use hashtag #AskAerisCTO to attend the chat.

“Imagine a future where enterprises and consumers will ask product companies about the sensor capabilities accessible via a mobile app when purchasing a new appliance or car,” said Syed Zaeem Hosain, Founder and CTO, Aeris. “In the future, not only will cars talk to each other, but people will wear clothes connected to the Internet, reading glasses will be connected to provide additional context to enrich the user’s experience, and more than one-half of the Internet traffic to homes will go to appliances and devices and not to children’s video games. We think this future may not be too far away. Given the tremendous growth and change that is taking place in the IoT industry, the future certainly is hard to predict, however, this is what we see taking shape in the near future.”
