How Absolut Vodka will use the Internet of Things to sell more than 'static pieces of glass' The Internet of Things promises to change this, signalling a future where beer bottles, trainers and fire alarms are connected to the internet and can continue talking to the parent brand after purchase.

How Absolut Vodka will use the Internet of Things to sell more than 'static pieces of glass'

That means thinking about products not just as something to sell once and have done with it, but as a continuous feedback loop of improvements, data and customer service. It means thinking about products as a source of data, and even as a subscription service. This requires a leap in thinking so dramatic that marketers mostly haven’t caught up. Major drinks firms, including Diageo, Pernod Ricard and Heineken have all dabbled in connected bottles, while Unilever last year issued five briefs to attract start-ups working on the Internet of Things.

Nike has also pioneered the brand-as-a-service concept with Nike+ Fuelband. Marketers Put Internet of Things Data to Use—and It Works. Marketers are leveraging the internet of things (IoT) to track and reach the cross-everywhere consumer.

Marketers Put Internet of Things Data to Use—and It Works

In a July 2015 study by 2nd Watch, nearly six in 10 US IT and business executives said they leveraged machine data/the IoT for digital marketing. However, for most, it was still early days for doing so, as two-thirds of users said they were in the beginning stages. Respondents were using machine data/the IoT for various reasons in digital marketing campaigns. Future Ready - Internet of Things to Reshape the Workplace. The Internet of Things (IoT) has made its way into the workplace, and is changing the way we do business.

Future Ready - Internet of Things to Reshape the Workplace

There’s a growing use of beacons, sensors, and ‘smart’ devices that collect data to automate manufacturing, streamline operations, and improve customer experiences. But that’s not enough. We are miles away from reaching a tipping point with IoT. In fact, we are barely scratching the surface of its potential. The workplace of the future is disruptive by nature, led by constant change, and characterized by enhanced connectedness. How The Internet Of Things Will Shape The Datacenter Of The Future. Rewiring the value equation with the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the greatest value-add opportunity a marketer could ever wish for, writes Steve Sammartino.

Rewiring the value equation with the Internet of Things

The value equation is a simple idea in the world of marketing: Value = Utility ÷ Price. We refer to it as a tool of eternal importance, but we so often fail to be masters of the equation itself. Instead, we modify the price to improve value once a product or service is established. And recently, the direction of that change is almost always down, as it’s the simplest and quickest way to improve the value equation and respond to the market.

But it wasn’t always this way. Why gestures will be the interface for the Internet of Things. India cannot afford to miss this Internet of Things wave. By: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Published:August 1, 2015 8:17 pm To participate and succeed in IoT, India Inc., needs product level innovation.

India cannot afford to miss this Internet of Things wave

IoT will take internet, smart devices and systems of today much beyond its conventional realm, by integrating advanced technologies such as sensors, artificial intelligence, robotics and analytics.

Topographical maps are designed to quickly impart elevation data through contour lines, and while they are useful for a variety of pursuits from surveying to hiking, they can be difficult to visualize in the real world.

This Trippy Augmented Reality Sandbox Lets You Move Mountains and Make it Rain

Now, with an augmented reality sandbox developed by researchers at UC Davis and UCLA, you can model lifelike landscapes that achieve a new level of realism and interactivity. Using an Xbox Kinect sensor, a projector and open source software, as well as a regular sandbox, users can sculpt the sand to create mountains, valleys, rivers and even erupting volcanoes that are projected down onto the sand in front of them. Users can hold their hands above the sandbox to simulate rainclouds as animated water follows the path of least resistance, giving undergraduate students an understanding of how erosion can affect a landscape over time. Why Latin America Should Embrace the Internet of Things. This post was written by Jordi Botifoll, President, Cisco Latin America, and originally published by the World Economic Forum Latin America faces major challenges in terms of development and competitiveness, but at the same time has a great opportunity to rethink its future and take huge steps forward.

Why Latin America Should Embrace the Internet of Things

The next phase of the Internet, the Internet of Everything (IoE) – a comprehensive ‘nervous system’ of networks that connect people, processes, data and things – offers incommensurate possibilities to transform the region, with important implications for its development, employment and competitiveness. The Internet of Everything makes networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries. These Highway Billboards Show Trees And The Night Sky Where The Ads Should Be. Instead of ads, two billboards along a crowded Boston highway temporarily showed images of nature instead.

These Highway Billboards Show Trees And The Night Sky Where The Ads Should Be

If you were stuck in traffic on I-95 in July, you might have seen a photo of a forest hanging over clearcut land. At night, one billboard showed the Milky Way—something that's normally hidden by light pollution from the city. "I'd been trying to figure out how to simulate the effect of Photoshopping reality," says artist Brian Kane, who teaches at Rhode Island School of Design. Like a real-life version of Photoshop's Healing Tool, one billboard shows a picture of the tree that the sign is blocking. The other temporarily brings back trees that were recently chopped down. Internet of Things Expert David Rose Talks Enchantment in The Guardian. In an interview with The Guardian, David Rose—preeminent speaker on the Internet of Things—claims that our interactions with technology are “undergoing a giant shift.”

Internet of Things Expert David Rose Talks Enchantment in The Guardian

This change is being fueled by a very basic human desire for wonder and enchantment—and could mean the end of the smartphone era as we know it. Sometimes called the 4th Industrial Revolution—or simply The Next Big Thing—the “Internet of Things” (or IoT) refers to the process by which everyday objects go online and become responsive. Imagine: an umbrella that lights up when the forecast calls for rain; window shades that move with the sun; Skype cabinets that light up with each call. For Rose, it’s all about simple-to-use, human-centered tools “that interact in ways people feel are natural and intuitive.” From Screens to Enchanted Objects.

The Internet of Things Must Be Designed to Build Jobs, Sustain Livelihood, and Save Lives, Expert Says. The Internet of Things, or the seamless interconnectivity of our daily lives to everyday objects via wireless connection, is already starting to materialize in many cities around the globe, thanks to the collaboration of many government agencies with technology companies whose mission is to make this a reality.

Despite the traction that the Internet of Things is currently gaining, it is still a long way to go to reach critical mass. At the recently held Embedded Systems Conference in Silicon Valley, Sokwoo Rhee, U.S. National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) Associate Director of Cyber Physical Systems, said that there is still a gap that is needed to be bridged between empirically-proven business cases and research and development funding allocation. In a report by EE Times, it was said that many projects are facing challenges in terms of execution because of lack of investments from concerned parties—government officials and companies who gave commitments to invest. How the Internet of Things is helping banks put their customers first. Jane Tweddle is industry principal, financial services at SAP UKI At the SAP Financial Services Forum in London last month, the topic of digital transformation dominated the agenda.

From legacy banks with lumbering IT systems to nimble fintech startups, the consensus was clear: The long-standing status quo is simply unsustainable in an increasingly digital economy, writes Jane Tweddle This was underlined by the Financial Conduct Authority earlier this year when it identified technology as a top-four priority area in its 2015/2016 Business Plan. However, it’s highly likely that the body’s plans to investigate how widely innovations in technology are being adopted by banks will reveal disappointing under-utilisation.

Far from being digital leaders, banks have tended to lag behind other industries. They are also justifiably cautious when it comes to change, erring on the side of continuity. McKinsey: nel 2025 l'Internet of Things può valere l'11% dell'economia mondiale. McKinsey stima che da qui al 2025 il mercato globale dell'Internet of Things, di cui ormai si parla ininterrottamente, potrebbe valere dai 3.900 agli 11.100 miliardi di dollari all'anno. Nella migliore delle ipotesi, si parla dell'11% dell'intera economia mondiale. Ma per arrivare a questa migliore ipotesi occorre costruire contesti, tecnologie e modelli di business che, al di là dell'entusiasmo e delle aspettative con cui ora si guarda al fenomeno, lo trasformino in una solida realtà. È questa, in estrema sintesi, la raccomandazione che emerge dal report “The Internet of Things, mapping the value beyond the value”, stilato dalla società di consulenza strategica analizzando più di 150 use case a livello globale.

Why the internet of things favours dominance. The grand vision of the internet of things is currently an exercise in imagination. It is about what happens when more and more of the real, physical world comes online, as devices and sensors proliferate, connecting everything. The promise is that the internet of things won’t just connect our homes, hospitals, schools and streets – it will enable whole new ranges of interactions, services and efficiencies. It’s not just about the things, in other words – it’s about the people and environments that animate them. How the Internet of Things will impact Hospitality Industry. The digital world has fundamentally changed the retail ecosystem. Especially smartphones are changing the way we shop. We are moving from E-Commerce to M-Commerce. Our mobile won´t be the only device anymore having the capability of collecting data and communicating with other devices. Whether it be referred to as Connected Devices, Intelligent Devices, Wearable tech or Internet of Things (IoT), they all refer to devices that monitor and gather data.
