Kili puts mPOS in a chip. SAP gears up for Internet of Things with help from Facebook, Samsung. SAP has a slew of news and upgrades on the way, all hinged around enterprise mobility as the Internet of Things (IoT) movement picks up the pace.

SAP gears up for Internet of Things with help from Facebook, Samsung

Unveiled amid the German software giant's TechEd & d-code events in Berlin this week, SAP is hatching three new IoT solutions for connected logistics, maintenance and manufacturing. A centralized, buzzing digital hub of real-time sensor data available in the field is the unifying theme to all of these solutions, running on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform for application development. The next iteration of the SAP Manufacturing Execution suite, for example, has been retooled with the Internet of Things in mind by integrating predictive analytics and more mobile support for the purpose of orchestrating and optimizing global operations. SAP and Samsung are connected apps across many channels, including retail, CRM, HCM, ERP and other key business functions for especially for wearables.

In The Internet of Things, YOU Will Be The Key. Details Category: News Published on Sunday, 13 July 2014 16:34 In The Internet of Things, YOU Will Be The Key Nicholas WestActivist Post The move to give everyone a global unique ID that can be verified across nearly all human activity has been in the works for some time.

In The Internet of Things, YOU Will Be The Key

Naturally, the fear of identity theft and cyber-banking crime of all stripes has been the sales pitch to accept identity tech such as facial recognition, iris scans, and fingerprinting, as well as their attendant databases. Digital sign-in services, smart cards and a range of biometrics have all been offered as perfect solutions that are starting to enter the market at many levels. Capitalizing on the holes in security that we continue to see revealed in our "smart" devices -- as well as seeking to find a solution for all of those pesky passwords each of us must deal with -- tech startup, Bionym, is one company offering its solution.

Ifttt / Coming Soon. Network layers. Near field communication. A summary of near-field communication Near field communication (NFC) is a set of ideas and technology that enables smartphones and other devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching the devices together or bringing them into proximity to a distance of typically 10 cm (3.9 in) or less.

Near field communication

Early business models such as advertising and industrial applications were not successful, having been overtaken by alternative technologies such as barcodes or UHF tags, but what distinguishes NFC is that devices are often cloud connected. All NFC-enabled smartphones can be provided with dedicated apps including 'ticket' readers as opposed to the traditional dedicated infrastructure that specifies a particular (often proprietary) standard for stock ticket, access control and payment readers. By contrast all NFC peers can connect to a third party NFC device that acts as a server for any action (or reconfiguration).

Tag Unleashes NFC Technology in Your Smartphone. Earlier this week we announced the availability of BlackBerry® OS 7.1 for BlackBerry smartphones – a software update that includes exciting enhancements and app updates, including the introduction of BlackBerry® Tag.

Tag Unleashes NFC Technology in Your Smartphone

I was waiting on the edge of my seat for this announcement, because I have been dying to talk about it with you! I’m a Senior Product Manager at Research In Motion® (RIM®) working on this exciting technology. I think that BlackBerry Tag will make Near Field Communication (NFC) a very real part of BlackBerry users’ daily lives…and it works like magic! La chasse aux trésors 2.0. Tag’By -Social Marketing Everywhere. Homeos. It is no secret that homes are ever-increasing hotbeds of new technology such as set-top boxes, game consoles, wireless routers, home automation devices, tablets, smart phones, and security cameras.


This innovation is breeding heterogeneity and complexity that frustrates even technically-savvy users’ attempts to improve day-to-day life by implementing functionality that uses these devices in combination. For instance, it is impossible for most users to view video captured by their security camera on their smartphone when they are not at home. Are you ready for the Internet of Things?
