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.

first_imgDr. Michael GutterConsider that each time you use the credit card, or realize you don’t know how much you have available for bills, or  decide something costs too much or is not needed – your kids are watching. Recent studies have increasingly documented the important influence parents have on the eventual financial behaviors of their children; this includes the good, the bad, and the ugly.By Carissa RogersConsider how we can set a good example.Try to explain why you use a card when you do. The basic difference between a debit and credit card so they understand when you are spending family money.When you are planning to pay the bills, even it if is online, explain what you are doing and how you keep track of them. You don’t need to in depth while your kids are young. However as your kids finish high school, consider that they should be learning their own organization system.Give them goals to save for. This can start small such as saving money so they can spend it at an upcoming family trip, or for something big that they want.As an aside, my son dropped many hints that he wanted an iPhone. I told him not only was the phone an expense, but also so is the addition to our family’s bill. I told him that would be an extra $120 per year. About six months later after some birthday, chore, good grades, and good effort money, he walked up to me with his wallet and said “lets go to the store.” For what” He opens his wallet, pulls out $270.“Here is for my bill” handing me $120 and the rest is for the store. I looked at him, incredulously, and said, “Let’s go”So remember if you teach them to save, they will understand it. If you teach them to be organized with their spending, they will see that. And if you teach them to spend, they will understand that too!This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on April 14, 2015.last_img read more
