A Brave New Connected World for Applications

The Internet of Things has continued to grow at a pace that suggests a staying power beyond a simple buzzword. It permeates nearly every industry across the globe, both industrial and consumer, and although the complexity varies from application to application, the technology has allowed us to rethink the way we live into the future. However, as fun as it is to don the seer's cap and predict all of the wonderful ways connected technology will change our lives, the development of the "back end" of the Internet of Things is proving to be a formidable component in the quest for growth.

As our devices continue to increase in connective capability, the amount of data being transferred every second will continue to grow as well. As the flow of data expands, the mobile and web applications through which the data runs will need to be able to incorporate not only greater amounts, but different kinds of data as well. Many systems are now utilizing location-based data for applications like beacons, tracking, services, etc. This has brought about the next generation of applications.

For the applications that have to-date seen the greatest usage, there is just too much data for them; they're old school; they can't handle that kind of data. They're used to handling one order a day from a person. Take a phone bill, it's just sending a hundred calls a day, that's a lot different than what Google is doing when they're tracking your location and suggesting restaurants, they're handling thousands of data points from each person a day. The order of magnitude is so much higher, so IoT-oriented companies today need to know how to not only do the new stuff, but to hook it to the old stuff, and build the back end that will support this new Internet of Things.

All your appliances, your thermostat, your fire alarms, your doors, your garage door opener, your power grid, your iron, whatever those things are, they're all going to be hooked up, in this connected world. Then you take that to the commercial space: every single street light, every single truck, every single thing will be hooked up. And then you'll be able to connect all those things together and build more intelligent systems. To be able to effectively deploy scarce resources, where it matters the most, and a good place to look at this is farmers are using drones to survey their land to tell soil moisture and fertilizer density. They don't want to spray the same amount of water and fertilizer everywhere, that's very expensive.

The use-cases for IoT technology are expansive. And they should be. But what we see today is a need for those companies that have traditionally built simple function applications, and companies entering the space, to understand the scope of needs that accompany a connected application. Location data, user data and predictive analytics are driving forces behind the Internet of Things for consumers and especially on the industrial side as well. Ensuring that the nuts and bolts of these projects are built for the next generation of needs is the clear need for IoT technology moving forward.

We all love the many benefits of natural plant oils, used as a deap treatment before shampooing, at home or at the beach, but is there an all-in-one solution for everyday intensive nutrition and modern styling?I am passionate about the benefits of natural extracts with tried-and-tested results, which I have used to develop my own brand (lemon for its acid ph, wheat germ for its fortifying action…). I wanted a product which combined caring and styling effects, and which could be used after shampo...
