Mobility and IoT

The expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT)

A recent survey by IDC shows that a majority of two thirds interviewed companies planned to invest in IoT (Internet of Things). IDC expects that by 2020 companies around the world will invest nearly $ 1.5 billion in the Internet of Things. In addition, Gartner expects that by 2020, there will be at least 21 billion smart connected outstanding devices. Two aspects of the IoT are likely to generate a heavy impact on businesses. A company can be both the user of intelligent connected objects (like machines monitoring their degree of wear), and the producer of intelligent objects connected with downloadable applications for its customers.

IoT and mobility

The Internet of things (IoT) is today stimulated by mobility, GPS, radio frequency identification (RFID), sensors, intelligent inks and other new materials. Examples of concrete cases:

  • Monitoring and control of the energy consumption of buildings.
  • Remote monitoring of production sites.
  • Optimized management of services and transport by tracking assets in transit.
  • Monitoring of location data to watch over people and objects via GPS, dynamic live geo-spatial data, real-time environmental data (meteorological data), traffic and geopolitics.
  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), a method for storing and retrieving data remotely via markers labeled "radio labels". Used for subcutaneous fleas of pets, passports, "contactless" payment cards ...
  • The mobile technology or "wearable technology" offers to record and analyze operating data. For example, Google Glass can assist a user during the assembly of components by providing the assembly information.

Choice of an adapted Information System (IS)

In this context, it will be necessary to be able to manage the quantities of data, sort them, validate them, use them, backups, comparators ... It is essential to have an ERP software with sufficient flexibility, excellent communication between services, the ability to manage data and appropriate identification and security systems. Therefore, the ERP system is essential for connecting and structuring data received from devices. It must be able to analyze and process these data flows in real time. More event oriented, it must be able to connect the process, people and data smartly to provide new business models and enable us to make better decisions. Our systems are evolutive (scalable) which allows us the power to process a huge amount of data. Through careful planning, our Information System is capable of evaluate and store millions of new generated data.
