Re: Hear from a User of the Techniology
ClassicC, You mention the old ways of doing things, however, don't you think adaptation to the new ways of doing things should match the speed of today's technologies? Otherwise, we will never catch up. -Susan

Re: Security benefits
Well, Sachin, but do you only want to have fun, or do you want efficiency? Innovation can and should exist anyway, don't you think?

Re: Security benefits
Or it can bog down IOT as a whole. Coping up with too many standards really takes the fun out of a healthy competition and without this healthy competition, there woudn't be innovation.

Re: future?
" But the reality is that it takes more than my optimism to make something work." @Susan So true. We should put that on T-shirts!

Re: Security benefits
Peter, 

"New opportunities equal new risks. Hopefully standardization can alleviate a few potential avenues."

Indeed. Having the capacity to forsee those risks before they even occur gives you a good chance to act in advance, or at least be better prepared in case you can't prevent an outcome. Standardization is certainly going to play an important role in the IoT as a whole.

Re: future?
Ariella, 

It's not that I am not optimistic about the alliance, or about the technology. I am. But the reality is that it takes more than my optimism to make something work. If it were only for my optimism the world would be a very different place.

Re: IBM: Boldly Going Where few......
Thanks, ClassC. :) 

What I like from IBM is that the company expands in different directions, all of which are crucial in today's enterprise world.

Re: Security benefits

@pfretty   Excellent point.  I agree,  Standardization is some form will be vital to having any chance of securing the countless number of devices that will comprise the potential threats of IoT.   Are you seeing any real activity in this regard from the major tech companies  or companies intent on producing IoT based products ?

Re: Hear from a User of the Techniology

 

@Chris    Thanks for the video - it does help me understand the scope of the effort that IBM and their clients seek to address.   I like these types of practical uses of IoT.   

 

Even though we live in the most technological age, we still have many remnants of the "old days" and "old ways" of doing things.

Security benefits
There are a number of potential benefits from IoT standardization. However, probably the most attractive would be the ability to more effectively establish, implement and maintain a security strategy. With IoT by nature there will be an incredibly larger number of access points meaning security will be far more challenging. New opportunities equal new risks. Hopefully standardization can alleviate a few potential avenues. Peter Fretty, IDG Blogger working on behalf of Cisco.
