first_imgTags:#cloud services#featured#iot in action#IoT platform#iot strategy#Microsoft#operating system#security#white paper At Microsoft, we’re committed to helping businesses capitalize on the enormous opportunity that The Internet of Things presents, but since the term “IoT” covers so much terrain, we understand it can be hard to know where to get started.There are often numerous questions about security, standards, and deployment, and the two big problems we get asked to solve for is: where do you focus your attention when it comes to IoT and where do you start?At the IoT in Action event we held in March in San Jose, we spent time talking to IoT experts within Microsoft and at partner companies like Arrow, Avnet, Advantech and others, as well as system integrators, ISVs and OEMs, who are solving for these challenges today. We asked them for their thoughts on how to get started with an IoT solution.Read below on what they had to say and register for a new IoT in Action with Microsoft event in Boston on Oct.30th to see what’s possible with IoT, get educated, and find the right partners to start build your own IoT solutions.Here’s what they had to say.Understand the platform firstIt’s important to know what IoT can and can’t do for you.  Many companies don’t see the true value of investing in IoT because they don’t understand how to stand up a platform to build off and evolve their IoT applicationSo, choosing a partner that can show you the way their platform works and how it can be integrated into your everyday business process is crucial. Does it need a consulting partner? What devices and machines need to be connected? And what happens to the data once it flows in?Delve into our IoT site on Microsoft.com to find information, case studies, white papers, and educational videos that will help you understand IoT better and help you make informed decisions on what to do next.Highlights from IoT in Action with Microsoft in March 2017Know your strength and where you’re goingEvery company has a core strength. Find yours and you’ll be able to generate actionable data and learn from it. How do you identify your core strength? Ask yourself what vertical you play in, what type of customers you serve, and what they need that an IoT solution could cater to.A large number of IoT initiatives don’t have a plan that defines what it’s going to look like in the end, who your audience is, and how you’re going to monetize your IoT platform. You need to decide early if the purpose is for cost savings, new revenue models, or increased customer engagement.Once again, ask yourself, “What’s my value proposition and what do I bring to the table?” There are a lot of different applications within IoT, so you should be able to articulate your value to your ecosystem partners and be able to find ways that you can turn those elements into a viable solution.“What vertical do you play in? What experience have you been creating over the years? What types of enterprise or customers do you serve? What are your partner assets? Get started where you have a core strength, a core set of value props that you can deliver.”Rodney Clark, VP IoT Sales, MicrosoftPredict the intent of your customerThe IoT industry leaders we spoke to suggest that winners in IoT will always be those who gather, analyze, and understand customer intent and can predict what they might do next.For instance, while you can get data and analytics on how many times someone walks into your store by installing an in-store sensor, it’s another thing to interpret that data to get inside the head of the customer to understand why they are there and what they might do next.The best place to begin before you start to figure out your customers is what your end goal is. It’s not enough to have the latest piece of hardware or software; it’s what you do with it. 4 Big Reasons Retailers are Racing to Embrace IoT Related Posts Be very selective in the area of IoT you pursueThere are lots of paths to get you to where you want to go, you just have to figure out a final destination. These range from IoT operating systems that fit your device of choice or large, robust cloud services that gives you the bandwidth and security your product or service requires.Which one serves your needs? Once again, it’s important to partner with the right people, whether it be a gateway provider, a cloud partner, or an integration partner who understands the area you want to pursue.Once you know your niche, you’ll start to gather the right team to help you excel in your business with the end customer in mind.“Don’t try to boil the ocean. Be very selective about what you do, and stay focused in connecting with the right partners in the ecosystem.”Manik Rane, Managing Director, Grail ResearchMake a commitment and find partnersThe best way to commit is to start with a goal in mind: are you going to increase revenue, try to save costs, or engage customers? Then, commit! Once you commit on the enterprise level, you’re ready to find other partners that exist in your ecosystem that are ready to commit with you.“Decide what you want to do, set up your goals, and then commit to it!’Tom O’Reilly, GM, IoT Device Experience, MicrosoftGiven the success of the IoT in Action event we partnered with ReadWrite in March 2017, we are doing it all again on 10/30 in Boston.Register for IoT in Action with Microsoft in Boston and learn where else in the world you can connect with IoT ecosystem partners to take action on IoT.

This gives me a lot of life. In our profession, everyone is looking at you and wants to make an opinion about you. And I would not like to change because I’m a natural person.””It was very important for me to get to a city that you can identify with. I think that if you come to a place that does not convince you, you can not be comfortable for many years in that place and feel good. There are players who do not care much, but I do, and now I almost feel better here than in the city where I was born.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Kane intends to start against Belgium

first_imgHarry Kane has no intention of resting for England’s Group G finale against Belgium and instead intends to continue with his recent goalscoring hot steak in order to aid his chances at winning the World Cup Golden BootThe England captain is now the leading scorer at the World Cup with five goals in two games following his hat-trick in Sunday’s 6-1 thrashing of Panama.Kane became only the third England player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup match after Geoff Hurst (vs Germany 1966 World Cup final) and Gary Lineker (vs Poland 1986 World Cup).The 24-year-old also became the first player to find the back of the net twice in his first two games since Poland’s Grzegorz Lato in 1974 – who would later win the Golden Boot.Kane has now overtaken scoring rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot award and could further add to his advantage with the latter looking set to be left out of Belgium’s final Group G game against England with an injury.“I want to continue, the form I’m in, but whatever decision the gaffer makes we’ll get behind,” said Kane, according to Sky Sports.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“That’s his decision, I guess, but obviously I want to play. The most important thing is always winning games, and if my goals help my team win then that’s the perfect situation.“There’s a long way to go and a lot of good players just behind me [on the list]. Hopefully, I can just continue and take it into Thursday’s game.”England are currently above Belgium in the Group G table due to a better disciplinary record and Kane is keen to help the Three Lions hold on to their slender lead by ideally winning their final group game.“It’s important we finish top,” he said.“We’re ahead by a yellow card or something but we want to go and try to win the game and take the momentum into the knockout stages.”last_img read more

PNPs Washington Misicks Complete Remarks at JAGS Memorial Service

first_img Recommended for you TCI: ‘Demons JAGS conquered are resurrected’; Preacher calls the country together at Natl Hero’s Day service Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, may 29, 2017 – Providenciales – Today, on National Heroes Day, the day he officially established into law, the leader of the Opposition, Washington Misick made a series of distasteful remarks in his address at the Memorial Service for the country’s only National Hero, Rt Excellent JAGS McCartney.Below are Mr. Misick’s complete remarks:“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” Henry David ThoreauThat my friends is why most heroes live short lives but achieve more than many who go on to live into old age and Honourable JAGS McCartney was no different – meeting his early demise just shy of his 35th birthday.As someone growing up in the sixties, just five years younger than McCartney and witnessing the unprecedented wave of decolonization: 32 countries gaining independence between 1960 and 1968, including Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Guyana – a combination of the civil rights and the black-power movement in the US resulting in the civil rights act in 1964 and the voting rights act in 1965 instilled a sense of racial pride and self-esteem in blacks across the world, and greatly influence the fearless courage of McCartney and others to agitate for change in the status quo from colonial rule to the attainment of self-determination.I knew JAGS; we disagreed on the means and the timetable for self-determination – a divisive argument to this day, but we were never disagreeable. JAGS had a strong conviction and an unshakeable focus on improving the future of these islands. And in this he was selfless. McCartney was a humble man who never forgot his roots, or seek out credit for things he did or did not do, as so many of us do today. He was empathetic, and compassionate, always displaying a sense of concern and kindness devoid of partisan politics.Don’t get me wrong JAGs was no saint. He was human and never hypocritical about his faults. His love of women is legendary. He was a regular guy with his share of domestic issues, but he was also a great visionary with a profound sense of purpose leaving a legacy that testify to the fact that imperfection, has never been a barrier to greatness. JAGS were about love and about cooperation and compromise and working together. The decision to introduce legislation to establish a National Heroes Day on which JAGs was inducted as our first National Hero was easy for all of those reasons.There is a lot of cheap talk these days about change, but Jags was a real change agent, a leader who refused to work in the system but choose to work on the system instead. Change – historic change and heroic change comes by working on the system. Real change is not spin without substance. It is honesty in the face of vulnerability. McCartney despite his vulnerabilities demonstrated that he could be trusted with power. May those who have inherited his baton and all of us who lead prove to be trustworthy as we remember the contribution of our first National hero.#magneticmedianews#NationalHeroesDay Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmeidanews, #nationalheroesday TCI: 25 Years of National Hero’s Day; JAGS is still the ‘One’ Increased Police presence promised, TCI Police Commissioner statement on recent shootingslast_img read more
