KPN, the leading telecommunications and ICT service provider in the
Netherlands, and Dyzle BV, the global leader in measuring and analyzing
business process data for the cold chain in real-time, have announced a
collaboration to offer an integrated platform for monitoring, tracking,
and providing real-time data analytics and visualization for the food
and pharmaceutical industries.
The collaboration is part of KPN’s innovation drive, helping customers
in the food and pharmaceutical sectors to improve their core business
activity and efficiency and to comply with health regulations. Dyzle’s
platform is a cloud-based solution that collects data such as
temperature, humidity, energy consumption and CO2, analyzes that data,
and makes it visible on a personal dashboard accessible securely over
the web from any internet-enabled device. The main purpose of delivering
this data is to help customers provide undisputable evidence and proof
of product quality for temperature-sensitive products.
Jimmy Wind, Managing Director of KPN M2M, said, “This partnership is in
line with our strategy of growth through value added services, and
innovating in sectors like machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, which
are now being more widely adopted in almost every industry sector. By
combining our M2M and RFID asset tracking solutions with Dyzle’s
monitoring and analytics platform, we will truly be able to move up the
value chain in our service offering to business customers. Not only can
we track the location of a product in a logistic chain, but also we
collect the environmental conditions during its shipment.”
Bert Zandhuis, CEO of Dyzle, added, “We are extremely pleased that KPN
chose to adopt our platform and combine it with their products and
services. This integrated platform offers customers a solution to a
growing industry trend: that of huge amounts of data being collected,
and needing to make sense of that data relevant to the business. That’s
where we have considerable experience, where we measure and present data
on personal dashboards to provide a snapshot at any time, or to warn of
any excursions in real-time. This is essential for our customers to
demonstrate proof of product quality and integrity.”
The partnership between KPN and Dyzle serves a market need for what one
analyst firm calls ‘one-stop shop application enablement platforms’.
According to ABI Research, these platforms ease data extraction and
normalization activities so that M2M applications and enterprise systems
can easily consume machine data. The firm says that application
enablement platforms will be a ‘critical and necessary’ enabler in the
use of M2M in small, medium and larger businesses. In particular, it
says that adding value added service capabilities is almost a necessity
to avoid commoditization pressures and capture revenues in the largest
segment of the M2M value chain.
ABI Research also forecasts that the M2M analytics industry will grow 53
percent over the next five years, to US$14.3 billion in 2018. The
forecast includes revenue segmentation for the five components that
together enable analytics to be used in M2M services: data integration,
data storage, core analytics, data presentation, and associated
professional services. It says analytics will play a critical role in
the evolution of M2M, serving as the foundation for an increasing number
of M2M business cases.
The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cold chain technology solution from
Dyzle provides interpretation and analysis of measured variables such as
temperature, humidity, energy consumption and CO2. The open independent
platform can integrate and utilize data collected from any source,
whether it is from proprietary systems or legacy technologies. Through
the entire supply chain – from storage to transport and distribution –
Dyzle collects data, analyzes it, and makes it visible via a ‘one click’
personal dashboard accessible securely over the web from any
internet-enabled device; this enables full visibility of the total cold

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
